4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a masterpiece. 18 Sep 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'd like to give this album five stars but can't quite. I'l reserve that for their third album 'In their Darkened Shrines.' I do love this album and it is their most adventurous musically. 'Die rache krieg lied der assyriche' sounds like nothing any other death metal band could ever produce and is far better than anything any other death metal band could produce. However, there are a couple of minor niggles.
The production lacks on the drums in my opinion. The snare is neither tinny enough to stand out at speed nor thunderous enough to be felt despite lack of distinct attack, as it is on the next two albums, making the blastbeats somewhat unsatisfying. Also the rest of the drum production makes it difficult to determine if the cymbals are trying to accentuate the riff or the bass-drums are providing mini-fills or just following the snare.
Secondly, it's hard to put into words but sometimes the songs seem overly unfocused. Nile is supposed to be progressive, light on repetition, but on this album sometimes the striving to make the songs sound uncliched makes them sound overly disjointed.
Despite these minor quibbles Catacombs is a fantastic album, that makes most death metal redundant. It also has that rarest of quantities in the genre, originality.

Format:Audio CD
Quite simply, one of the finest death metal albums of 90`s, if not ever. With this album, Nile went from unkown American scenesters to heroes of death metal almost over night, and it`s easy to hear how.
The foundation stone upon which Nile build is death metal of the most primal, brutal kind. There is a kind of raging black evil, barely concealed, struggling to escape from every chord of this album. A tightly controlled, yet almost seemingly random, maelstrom of blast beats gel seamlessly with a wall of twisting, sandstorm guitars, while three vocalists lay Will Rahmer style death rumbles in a highly rythmic fashion.
To this already impeccable foundation, nile then proceed to add bastardised Egyptian melodies, haunting synth lines, and truly atmospheric effects. The result is an album which conjures images of long buried cities and tombs, with altars to dark gods buried beneath oceans of sand. Unmissable.

5.0 out of 5 stars oh my god!! 27 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Words cannot describe this album.After buying both Black Seeds.. and In Their Darkest i became interested in death metal again.Those were amazing albums but when Amongst... finally arrived to my house on a US mail order i became traumtized for days after the first listen.I thought that nothing could outdo The Blessed Dead..Until i heard Ramses Bringer Of War.About 3 min into the song comes a guitar solo and 2 rhytmic verses which brought tears to my eyes,such is the brilliance.Chuck Schuldiners DEATH being my alltime favourite band, i longed for another uber technical death metal band, and my god did i get it! This is their best album though the other 2 are equally amazing. Be warned: Listening to this band makes about everything else called death metal sound like shit. But thats okay, you dont need any other band after listening to Nile.
