Nile: In Their Darkened Shrines

Sound — 10
Sound - exceelent from the start, from the opening A in the blessed dead you can tell that this album is oging to be something special. The drumming, guitar is as fast as ever and as beforethe guys from Nile really show off their immense skill at their instruments. Truely amazing playing all round.

Lyrics — 10
Lyrics - same Egyptian themed lyrics, the death growl is as strong as ever. Again great.

Overall Impression — 10
This is Nile at their best, the best songs from the album are: The Blessed Dead, Unas Slayer Of The Gods, In Their Darkened Shrines II -- Invocation to Seditous Heresy, In Their Darkened Shrines III -- Destruction of the Temple of the Enemie and In Their Darkened Shrines: IV. Ruins, I love every second of this album, Nile really prove that they are the kings of Death Metal...Nice!

    Fucking awesome band live. It's an amazing experience thats only comperable to CannibalCorpse in Live Brutality.
    Ovah-rated. They're at their best with the atmospheric pieces, but all too often they abandon those and just sound like a fairly generic (although pretty enjoyable) DM band.
