The masters of historical-themed brutality, NILE, have released a lyric video for the brand new track entitled ‘Call To Destruction’ here

The song is taken from the band’s new masterpiece »What Should Not Be Unearthed« which will be released on August, 28th via Nuclear Blast.

‘Call To Destruction’ is also available as digital single.

Mastermind Karl Sanders states:

“Call to Destruction” should leave no doubt as to the explicit and extreme nature of the new Nile Album.
These are some of our heaviest yet memorable tracks ever. The violence contained in every aspect of Call to Destruction is echoed , through many varieties and creative permutations of Heaviness and Brutality , throughout the entire “What Should not be Unearthed” disc.
The inspiration for the song itself comes from news reports in 2012 – when radical Clerics were calling for the destruction of Egypt’s Pyramids. Most of the lyrics to “Call to Destruction” are actual direct quotes from the words of Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud – whose eloquence and quote-ability are clearly second-to-none. While this lyric video is filled with many images of Violence and destruction of Historical artifacts culled from common everyday newsreel imagery , its message is to communicate the insanity and futility of war as a tragic result of the clash of ideologies. This video’s sole purpose is to bring attention to the wanton destruction of Artifacts in the middle east. None of the members of Nile in any way endorse any political or religious agenda with this video ; Nile as students of Egyptian History are concerned about the preservation of the cultures of all peoples of our Greater Global Community”.

The tracklist of »What Should Not Be Unearthed« is as follows:
01. Call To Destruction
02. Negating The Abominable Coils Of Apep
03. Liber Stellae Rubeae
04. In The Name Of Amun
05. What Should Not Be Unearthed
06. Evil To Cast Out Evil
07. Age Of Famine
08. Ushabti Reanimator
09. Rape Of The Black Earth
10. To Walk Forth From Flames Unscathed

Mastermind Karl Sanders comments on the new album:

“The goal for the new record was sheer epic brutality. The focus this time around is on brutal Heavy Metal riffing and songwriting;
kind of like of an »Annihilation Of The Wicked« approach but very streamlined to achieve maximum destructive impact. So we believe
that we have a truly crushing disc to bring to metal fans. Although »Unearthed« is still full of the kind of undeniable musicianship people
have come to expect from us over the years, it’s the songs themselves that will hit listeners over the head this time around.”
