Nile In Their Darkened Shrines on Limited Edition Colored 2LP

Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available

All four of South Carolina technical death metal band Nile's classic Relapse Records albums will be available again on vinyl for the first time in over a decade including Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka (1998), Black Seeds of Vengeance (2000), In Their Darkened Shrines (2002) and Annihilation of the Wicked (2005). All four of the albums will be pressed on limited edition colored vinyl and will include a download card for the entire record. 

Formed in 1993 by Karl Sanders (guitar/vocals), Chief Spires (bass/vocals), and Pete Hammoura (drums), Nile wasted little time combining their interest in Egyptian history, culture and lore with the ferocity of modern death metal. Using a symphonic approach to songwriting and arrangement, Nile unleashed an uncompromising attack that fused unique, technical death metal with organic Middle Eastern tones. Their unique lyrical approach was inspired by Sanders' interpretation of ancient Egyptian inscriptions, temple carvings, papyri, hieroglyphics and tomb paintings depicting ancient battles, rituals and religious ceremonies. 

Each following year brought a new recording, which marked a large step forward in their musical evolution. Working with Bob Moore once again, Nile's ambitious third full-length, In Their Darkened Shrines took the band's astute songwriting and invention to dizzying new heights. The record fused the band's trademark Middle Eastern trappings, symphonic bent, speed and intensity into one of the most epic death metal albums ever conceived. Volatile passages burst into beautiful regal arrangements and weighty riffs segued into majestic acoustic passages on such tracks as "Execration Text," "Unas Slayer of the Gods," "Wind of Horus" and the magnificent four-part tour-de-force, "In Their Darkened Shrines."
