Nile “What Should Not Be Unearthed”
Nuclear Blast records
I expected to hear new album from Nile for a while, and couple weeks ago I got it finally, and start listen to it carefully, and now I’m ready to give some feedback. First of all, it was really amazing when there was such a brutal start, hehe, I mean once I pressed play button, there wasn’t any intro and some light start, but “What Should Not Be Unearthed” start with fast and brutal rhythms, what was really shaking for ears. And from the very start I got there will be really merciless and extreme album, typical for Nile and great for listeners! And really, the entire album sounds on one breath, the breath of technical brutality and atmosphere. Nile did not gone by another way for their music, but continues with the typical for them music. Each song is enough brutal, made with really deep and pressing rhythms, with huge portion of brutality. Guitars are really awesome; they sounds as always just like walls of sound, tight and decent. Comes with many tempo-changes and thresholds, with catching tempo-changes, comes with hurricane, freezing guitar solos and etc. Fast and pressing rhythms changes with walls of slowdowns, so you’ll not be bored by some same-type shit, but you’ll be enjoyed by really reach music. All in all, this album shows great picture – Nile is Nile still, without any compromises. They able to do decent stuff, and they really like to do it. Technical, reach and decent brutal stuff, with ancient Egypt atmosphere of course. While lucky fans will see their live on the stage, I’ll continue to enjoy by home listening of “What Should Not Be Unearthed” until I’ll get an opportunity to check them on the stage with these endless brutality!
