    Seems pretty simple to me: Nile sound generic. Behemoth do not. Ok?

    I'm not saying either band is original or non generic but I just don't understand anyone can say Nile is generic and not Behemoth?

    Behemoth. Greater musicianship, lyrical content, and the songs flow together nicely. Nile puts me sleep. Some of their ten minute songs could easily shortened down to four or five, but they inject it with psuedo-oriental bullshit. I like them, they just seem extremely pretentious half the time.

    their egyptian epics are fucking awesome, I dunno what you are talking about. "unas slayer of the gods" is especially spectacular, close your eyes and listen to that song and you will feel like you are in the middle of some ancient egyptian ceremony :lol: :lol:

    you should love their new album though, no bullshit on that one. Just pure, relentlessly crushing death metal (if the previews are any indication)

    Unas is indeed an awesome track.

    As Above, So Below is also incredibly badass, though.

    I gotta admit, Nile is an awesome name for a band.

    Behemoth couldn't hope to compose a song like that. Just a slew more of generic Death metal. Some shining moments on a track or 2 here and there and then back to chug chug chug, one dimisional vocals.

    I'd have to go with Nile musically. And Behemoth, live.

    You are right... Behemoth couldn't compose a song like that because Behemoth wouldn't dare to steal the main riff from Candlemass' Well of Souls like Nile did for Unas. :p

    behemoth's vocals are absolutely brilliant on every album with the exception of demigod (too much double tracking). Nergal's vocals are unbelievably aggressive, loud and just heavy as fuck

    It's not the same, and B you have one riff(Not really. lol), I am sure I can find many fro Behemoth given their so generic. Conquer All's riffs have been recycled about 100 times by many metal bands mentioned on these forums.

    Behemoth does not bore me. Nile does.

    Hence, I choose Behemoth.

    I would like Nile a hell of a lot more if they tuned up a whole step and turned down their gain; sometimes Nile just sounds like spiky mush. Behemoth is my choice.

    That works for me too.

    I saw them both last year. Another chance to see them this year, but mostly because its free.

    I wonder which of the new albums they're putting out will reign superior. :p

    Anyway, one more vote for Behemoth.

    I think I'm somewhat more inclined towards Behemoth because I tend to gravitate more towards European bands over American bands.

    This describes myself as well, but I'm more fair to judge bands by their nationality these days. It's true that Europe puts out 95% better bands than America, but I'm willing to give an American band a shot if I think they have good stuff.

    Indeed. There's been some decent stateside metal in recent years.
