5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the finest Death Metal album ever recorded, 14 Nov. 2003
This review is from: IN THEIR DARKENED SHRINES (Audio CD)
Unbelievable. That’s what this album is. It just defies belief. There is a strong possibility that this could be the best Death Metal album ever recorded. Nile are, without a doubt, the finest Death Metal band in the world today (realistically, only Cryptopsy can run them close nowadays), and while their last album ‘Black Seeds Of Vengeance’ was brilliant, this is on another level again. You know the drill by now; ancient Egyptian themes, blastbeats a-go-go, three vocalists, sampled instruments, this record has everything that makes Nile great and turns them all up to 11. Also, there is a little more light and shade than on the previous two albums, with songs like ‘Sarcophagus’ showing that the band can do more than just all-out speedblasts. However, the centrepiece of the album is undoubtedly the 11-and-a-half minute epic ‘Unas Slayer Of The Gods’. In my considered opinion, this is the single best Death Metal song of all time (and trust me, I’ve heard a hell of a lot!). From slow to fast, growls to spoken word, this song has the lot. There is no poor songs on the album at all, but it is worth buying just to hear this masterpiece alone. Also, go and see them live as well, they can pull off all of their feats on stage as well. Simply phenomenal!
