Nile Announce a new album!
The Egyption based Death metal band Nile are set to release their 8th album titled; What Should Not Be Unearthed on August 28th via Nuclear Blast Records. The album is produced by Nile and mixed by Neil Kernon
They have Michal Loranc to thank for the artwork which is pretty badass you can see that right here;
Karl Sanders had this to say “These songs will be a blast to play live, and we are stoked at the opportunity to bring these songs to metal fans everywhere. See you on tour!”
SO for any Nile fans out there August 28th will be a great day, as we see an album that the band is saying will be as brutal as “ Annihilation of the Wicked” with that said I can’t wait to hear it when it comes out.
So to get you pumped up for a new album lets check out some videos from their past albums with the Greek drumming demigod George Kollias playing percussion;
And a personal favorite ;
So May 12th 2015 we saw the musical talent that is George Kollias in motion. George’s solo album, and I do mean solo he plays every instrument besides the drums on this album. If you aren’t familiar with his name allow me to bring you up to speed. George Kollias born in Corinth, Greece has played the drums for the Greek metal band Nightfall and left back in 2005 to join the band Nile. Nile a metal band whose music is based on ancient Egyptian mythology, religion, and history. George joined the band to play on the “ Annihilation of the wicked” album.
Today we see George doing his own solo project playing the drums as well as the guitars, bass, and vocals. George is a killer drummer who has his own foot technique in which the faster the bass drum beats the more stable his legs become while also adding a swivel like motion that he explains it uses the unused energy and utilizes it for a faster BPM bass drum roll. Whether or not you are a fan of Nile George is a pretty badass drummer, his solo album is streaming right now at a few different websites. The one website he had posted a link on from his facebook page http://rockhard.gr/rockhard/news/13880-live-streaming-nile-invictus. At some point I will end up listening to the whole album and giving my two cents but for now check it out on soundcloud streaming the entire album.
