I was never a fan of brutal tech death metal legends Nile, but my tastes have changed since I last tried to give them a good hard listen, so their upcoming album might be a great avenue to try to get into them. The band previously announced their new album At The Gate Of Sethu a month or so back, but now there’s a tad bit more to tell! The follow up to 2009’s Those Whom The Gods Detest will see a July 3rd release via Nuclear Blast Records.
The new cover art (above) at least looks better than anything they’ve ever slapped on their albums. For those of you out there more well versed in Nile than I, what’s a good starting point? I want to cross them off my list of bands to stop being a lazy dick about.
