So i'm trying to write my own material and while i have done so, i want to write something closer to the band known as Nile

If you don't know of Nile, they are an american band and they play heavy music with a lot of harmonization, tremolo picked riffs and eastern scales

I know of a pretty Nile-ish scale, the hungarian c minor scale but i just can't write anything like them, let alone a song like Sarcophagus,Laying Fire Upon Apep or Execration Text


I have tried look at what they play but i just don't understand any of it and i don't know how to write something similair to them, any ideas guys?

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.
