Well someone suggested that I check out Nile, I had heard of them before so I finally checked them out and got some guitarpro tabs, I only checked like 4 songs and all the tabs I got for those 4 songs pose a question. Do these guys actually shred? they just seem to have a bunch of weird time signatures, sludgy palm muted powerchords and fast tremelo picking (which I hardly would call shredding) so do these guys have any intense solo passages? Any sweep picking? something like that...or are they just a tremelo pick happy band?
Good luck, you'll need it.
The lives of thousands in my hands
I’ve come to take back what’s rightfully mine and now you’re damned
The lights grow dark in their homes
But our road is lit by fire from the sky
So we push forward

They are awesome!

There are so many things wrong with your post. Jesus tapdancing christ...

Most notably,
-You're not in the Nile thread
-A major requirement for you to enjoy a band is that they employ "shred" (which is a rather vague term anyways)
-You used the word "shred".
-You judged a band by listening to guitar pro tabs.
-You judge a death metal band clearly without any prior knowledge of death metal
-You picked on Nile to express your dislike for what's quite characteristic of other death metal
-You picked on Nile to express your misunderstanding of time signatures. Nile don't really use "weird" time signatures. Many bands have used these "weird" time sigs long before. It's quite commonplace now.
-You used the word "weird" to describe time signatures because they don't seem like they're 4/4?
-You're a genuine twat
