    Doch. :Spin:

    Sounds like the sloppy mess I remembered.
    Too raw for me, performance of the band is much better on the newer stuff.
    I can say though, that Annihilation has more memorable riffs in comparison to the songs in the op (listening to Lashed to the Slave Stick atm...)

    Blasphemy, seriously, stick with it.
    It's incredible, I bet even the Nile fans who DO like the new one will tell you this is miles better.

    That George Kollias - New DVD 2012 teaser video is amazing. His double bass technique is unreal.

    yeah, to me it went downhill when Dallas was made the main vocalist, don't like his voice at all, Vesano and Chief were so much better vocalists, and Karl's voice is excellent if it's used sparingly (as it is). I do like the drum sound on this album, and these songs aren't bad, but definitely nothing like the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka, that album kicks so much ass it's unmeasurable

    production wise i like "Annihilation of the Wicked" the most. Nice guitars and bass. I´m no huge fan of piccolo snares but love it here:



    Found an interesting thread at Nile forum where Neil Kernon answered questions about guita tones

    Not saying the playing is bad. Just sounds very messy. I gave it another listen and really liked sarcophagus for heavyness and athmosphere. Ill give it a few more listens, maybe I can dig it.
    There is a lot of very generic sounding "muted dm riffage with cymbal catches" in there, though. Gets annoying after a while.

    the messiness or whatever you want to call it is what I love about it. not all styles, even in death metal, are better when played ultra tight and seperated imo.
    all NILE records prior to Annhililation Of The Wicked are what I'd call organic and atmospheric which is what I prefer in this case by a longshot.
