Yeah, Dallas has been playing bass on the past 2 or 3 records
they're relatively popular and they have a gimmick, thus they are easy targets for the REAL death metal fans.
Lol. Real death metal fans
i liked that bit too
I dont mind Dallas playing bass on the records, or even that his lines dont do much, but I just wish they had more bass in the mix. I find their guitar tone is quite over-saturated & is less heavy without the bass to anchor it a bit.
When I saw them last the guy sessioning on bass kept turning himself up when he thought no one was looking. It was pretty amusing.
I'm wayyyyyyyy out of the loop here. The last album they did that I knew about was Ithyphallic... I will have to look this one up. Nile were always a temperamental band for me. Their albums from beginning to end are not very well written generally, but their brilliance lies in the brutality of their stuff, especially "ITDS".
The new one is definitely worth a go. I don't think any individual song on it is as as good as the best songs on AOTW or Darkened Shrines, but as an album I think its more consistent.
Does anyone else feel that ITDS was awesome and far more atmospheric than their other stuff? Their other stuff strikes me as decent-but-slightly-soulless, but that album is fucking awesome.
Shrines, Black Seeds and all the other old ones are way way better than everything afterwards. AOTW I also thought had some great stuff, but not *as* great. Ithyphallic blew me away at first but it's long since worn off now. Havent bothered with the new one.
The new one is way ahead of Ithyphallic. It's a great disk
Yes, it's much better than Ithyphallic.
