Nile - Live in Cracow 29.11.2012
Despite the odd misconception that Nile's members are of Egyptian descent, none
are; they do, however, have an interest in Egyptian mythology,
especially Karl Sanders.
In the late 1980s, prior to forming Nile, Karl Sanders played with the
thrash metal band Morriah, sharing the stage with Morbid Angel among
other prominent metal bands. In fact, Nile's first demo was markedly
redolent of that thrash identity, which outweighed any of the death
metal elements that would later define the band's sound.
The band categorize their music as "Ithyphallic Metal" in reference to its epic Egyptian themes.
Nile formed in their hometown of Greenville in 1993, from the ashes of a
previous band Morriah in which Karl Sanders played since the 1980s.
Karl Sanders (guitar/vocals), Chief Spires (bass/vocals), and Pete
Hammoura (drums) debuted with their Festivals of Atonement EP in 1995,
leading Nile to a southwestern tour in support of other big metal acts
such as Obituary, Deicide, and Broken Hope.
The EP Ramses Bringer of War was released by Visceral Productions in
1997. Visceral were due to release the full-length Amongst the Catacombs
of Nephren-Ka, but went out of business later that year. However,
Relapse Records was open to releasing it in early 1998, giving Nile a
wider distribution and a chance to hit the road with Incantation and
The follow-up, Black Seeds of Vengeance, was released in late 2000.
Prior to this release, Pete Hammoura left the band due to injuries
sustained while touring for The Catacombs. However, since the band
thought he was holding them back, it was agreed that he leave. Derek
Roddy drummed on all of the tracks (except “To Dream of Ur”) as a
session musician. Also, prior to Black Seeds of Vengeance, Dallas
Toler-Wade joined as a second guitarist/vocalist. A collection of
remastered recordings, In the Beginning, was released later the same
Chief Spires left the bands a few months after the release of Black
Seeds of Vengeance citing personal and professional differences. He was
replaced by Jon Vesano. The band also found a new drummer in Tony
By 2002, In Their Darkened Shrines was released. One reviewer noted that
the album gave "death metal a cinematic, symphonic twist". Two
videos were shot with director Darren Doane, "Sarcophagus" and
"Execration Text", respectively.Tracklist1-Sacrifice Unto Sebek
