"NILE Preparing To Hit The Studio - Jan. 23, 2009
South Carolina-based technical death metal band NILE is writing songs for its sixth full-length album, tentatively due this summer/fall via Nuclear Blast Records. According to Revolver magazine, the group plans to hit the studio in March or April, and guitarist/vocalist Karl Sanders says the CD will likely be NILE's most eclectic offering to date. "We're going to some very unexpected places," he said. "I've been listening to some oud music [the oud is a Middle Eastern lute — Ed.], Iranian music, and some Hindu stuff, and that stuff's definitely rubbing off on the new songs."
NILE's fifth studio album, "Ithyphallic", came out on July 17, 2007 via Nuclear Blast. Engineered by Bob Moore and produced by Neil Kernon (CANNIBAL CORPSE, NEVERMORE, DEICIDE), the CD was recorded at Sound Lab Studios in Columbia, South Carolina."
