PostSubject: Opinions of NILE.   Thu Jan 27, 2011 9:09 pm

I know most people from the old Revolver forum have been a fan at some stage. How does this band sit with people now? Personally i think they are ok, but not something i listen to very often. I dig out the first four releases once or twice a year to see if i still like them. The last two albums did nothing for me. Especially Ithyphallic, which i near hated. Going to give Black Seeds.. and ..Thrines a listen over the next few days to see how they hold up. May end up with a few extra drink coasters who knows.

Also does anybody know where to fine some good older design patches?

Ramses Bringer of War, Festivals of Atonement, and Amongst the Catacombs... are good. Black Seeds had its moments, but overall wasn't up to par. Everything else was awful.

I'm still a fan. I listened to the newest albums in the last week and can say they are a considerable drop off in quality from their earlier work, but they're still decent albums.

I enjoy Nile. I think a lot of the songs sound kind of same-y, but I don't mind it from time to time. "Annihilation of the Wicked" is awesome.

Agreed. The last two had a few songs on each that stood out but for the most part they're pretty mediocre.

Annihilation of the Wicked is definitely my favorite album by them. But it was also my first album from them and one of the albums that really started getting me into death metal so that fact is probably swaying my opinion a bit.

Annihilation of the Wicked is supreme... the perfect combination of technical wizardry and sheer death metal power.

The latest is a big step up from Ithyphallic, which is itself a horribly flaccid album...

The post Black Seeds... albums don't even need the dick pun to be considered horribly flaccid.

I guess I didn't like their shift from slower, more crushing death metal to the faster more technical style. It just ruined the band for me. My first Nile album was Amongst the Catacombs when it was released, and then I checked out the pre-Relapse stuff. All of which kills.

Annihilation of the Wicked for me as well. I like parts of their earlier albums but I fuckin hate Carl Sanders' shitty vocals, kinda takes away from it at times.
