I'm new to metal. Today I down loaded Annihilation of the Wicked by Nile. I got to say, it's an oen solid album. I love how relentlessly fast paced it is. I thought it had a very unique dm sound. The guitar work also reminded me of old Slayer. And the thematic effects were great. I loved the chanting. This is actually one of the first Death Metal albums that spoke to me. Granted I've only heard from beginning to end Gorod's newest and this one. Anyways, I'm stoked to listen to this album time and time again. Four our of Five stars.
