Nile Release New Song, ‘Permitting the Noble Dead to Descent to the Underworld,’ From Upcoming Album
Reigning kings of Egyptian-themed technical death metal Nile have debuted the new track ‘Permitting the Noble Dead to Descend to the Underworld’ on their MySpace page earlier this week. The song comes from their upcoming release, ‘Those Whom the Gods Detest,’ scheduled for a Nov. 3 release.
Produced and mixed by Neil Kernon (Nevermore, Cannibal Corpse, Queensrÿche), ‘Those Whom the Gods Detest’ also features a stellar drum recording by Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Vital Remains, Goatwhore) — a move dubbed “the band’s strongest production and perhaps their best material to date.”
Cover artwork is by Michal ‘Xaay’ Loranc, the man responsible for the art on frontman Karl Sander’s second solo album, ‘Saurian Exorcisms.’
Nile will be headlining a tour alongside legendary labelmates Immolation, as well as Krisiun, Abigail Williams and Dreaming Dead. The 32-date trek starts Jan. 15.
