Technical death metal Egyptologists Nile are proud to release their ninth album, “Vile Nilotic Rites”, via Nuclear Blast. In celebration of the release the band offer fans the lyric video for the song, “Snake Pit Mating Frenzy”.
Karl Sanders comments:
The arrival of the release day of “Vile Nilotic Rites” is the long awaited culmination of not only years of passionate, dedicated work from everyone involved, but also the sweeping realization, the promised land of the collective hopes and expectations of our fans. In truth, this day of deliverance is also their day, not just ours. Nile fans have always been loyal and supportive through the years, and evidenced themselves particularly so over and over during the long wait while we slaved over this album. Their eternal metal faith and encouragement were a continuous source of inspiration for us to push ourselves to make this the best Nile record we possibly could. This album has been a long time coming; but it is here at last, here at last. Thank the metal gods almighty, “Vile Nilotic Rites” is here at last.
“Vile Nilotic Rites” was recorded and produced by Karl Sanders at Serpent Headed Studios in Greenville, South Carolina with the exception of the drums which were recorded at Esoteron Music Studios in Athens, Greece with engineering handled by Jim Touras and George Dovolos. The album was mixed and mastered by Mark Lewis at MRL Studios. For the album artwork, the band returned to artist Michał “Xaay” Loranc who has worked with the band for over 10 years.
