The best Death Metal band!!! I love this group!!!!!

From: drakkar Date: March 13, 2002 at 14:31
buy this goddamn album!!! i can't emphasize enough how groundbreaking this album was when it came out. amazingly brutal and fast band with an epic quality created by middle-eastern riffs and egyptian atmospherics.

From: athan Date: October 22, 2002 at 3:56

From: slayer Date: October 29, 2003 at 10:48
which song is the one with the scream?

From: The Eviscerated Date: February 22, 2004 at 7:49
Nile have brought a style to technical death metal that has a notorious power and unbridled vigor.

From: steve Date: May 27, 2005 at 23:07
WOW!! I am surprised that this album is actually heavier than 'In their darkened shrines'! Although its heavier, its not as great. In their Darkened Shrines is alot more atmospheric and technically proficiant!

I have to be sincere, i recently hear this band and i have to say that i like this one. The album is fueled with egyptian themes and sounds(Btw i love this kind of stuff). Good production, short songs & time but quite good Death Metal album ala Morbid Angel, Suffocation etc. Powerful 3 vocals. Nile will play in my country this december and seriously i'm thinking to go to this concert. 85/100

Have you heard the intro in "Beneath Eternal Oceans of Sand"? don't you remind of any Iron Maiden song? "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" could be?
