• NILE - Annihilation Of The Wicked 2xLP
RED / GOLD Merge Vinyl
2015 Pressing ( RR6630)
With their reputation established, a more or less stable line-up and the praise of the international metal press South Carolina band Nile had become comfortable within the little niche they had carved out for themselves over the years.
With the arrival of Annihilation of the Wicked, one of the most hotly anticipated metal releases of 2005, Nile have not only proven that they remain the undisputed masters of American death metal, but they've managed to equal, or dare I say, even top their highly acclaimed previous record. If hearing In Their Darkened Shrines left listeners impressed, Annihilation of the Wicked will leave them awestruck. By bringing in veteran producer Neil Kernon, who has been behind such pristine sounding metal albums in the past, most notably Queensryche's underrated Rage For Order and Nevermore's Dreaming Neon Black, Nile have put out by far their best-produced album. True to Kernon's style, the mix is impeccable; the roar of the music is massively heavy, but it's so finely tuned, so crisply recorded, that it's just as easy to lose oneself listening to the more subtle musical arrangements as it is to absorb the sheer force of the band's performance.
