Alright so it's been awhile since I've posted to this meager blog. I have no real excuse so let's just continue on with the concert review. Ancient Egyptian influenced brutal death metal band Nile is on tour again with Ex Deo, Psycroptic and Keep of Kalessin to bring forth the brutality across the States.
It's been about eight years or so since I've seen Nile. That was back on the Blackest of Black (the first one?) that Danzig organized and headlined. At the time my taste in metal was still in a precocious state, absorbing all the new shit that I could find. I was still fairly new to death metal at the time being familiar to Death, Vader, Dying Fetus and Nile. This was also the same year that I discovered Opeth, so imagine my excitement when I found out they were going to be sharing the same bill.
Since it was essentially a festival style bill, each band only got about 20 minutes of set time. So that meant that Opeth played two songs and Nile maybe four. But they didn't get a chance to as their equipment shorted out and led me to exclaim "Fuck you" at the inanimate amplifier causing the headache.
More after the jump...
