This album is incredible. I had an eargasm when I heard "At The Gate Of Sethu". This album contains some of Nile's finest and most brutal guitar work to date. I was slightly disappointed in "Those Whom The Gods Detest", but this album makes up for that in spades. This album features Nile's clearest sounding guitar tracks (their guitar tone is awful on their first albums IMO), which makes it easier to hear why Karl Sanders and Dallas Toler-Wade are some of the best guitarists in the business.
Lyrics — 7
When I listen to Nile, I normally don't focus or have high expectations for any deep or meaningful lyrics. If you're a technical death metal fan you know there's a lack of emphasis of lyrics, the must is most important. If you're a Nile fan you already know the content of their lyrics.
Overall Impression — 10
In times of djent and deathcore, it's still nice to see some technical death metal bands can still deliver and Nile does more than that with "At The Gate Of Sethu". This is definitely their best since "Annihilation Of The Wicked". If you're an old school metal head like myself, are a Nile fan, want to hear something interesting, or a fan extreme music buy this album now! You won't be disappointed.
