I just realized I never posted in here, and haven't really seen a post in here in a while except recently, which..is..what...made me realize.. haha yeah.
I did get to see Nile a week or so ago on the King Diamond,Black Dahlia Murder,Behemoth, Nile tour.
And need I say it was amazing?I remember the set consisted of "Sarcophagus”, “Chapter For Transforming Into A Snake” “Annihilation Of The Wicked”,“Black Seeds Of Vengeance” and a few more. They were just so bad ass. I thought it was a better show this time, then the last time I saw them.
And also all the bands did exceptionally well, if you are a fan of any of the others. GREAT fucking SHOW!

Has anyone else checked out this tour? If so id love to hear how it was.
Maybe you should post about it!!!

Hullo. My name is Steph, and Nile is good.

I don't know what to say, so I'll briefly talk about when I saw Nile in concert. It was good.
Uh... I actually got a bootleg, but I hear Karl isn't fond of bootlegs, so I will not be sharing. (Mostly because I can't figure out how to get the video on the internet.... But also because I would rather not ever feel the wrath of Karl.)

And I have one Nile shirt. I support the band! I made it into an icon...

Less than enjoyable news. [Mar. 4th, 2005|09:26 pm]

and finally... some bad news.

Jon Vesano has decided to part ways with Nile. this is a huge disappointment. Here is the text:

"Hail Nile fans....

I'm sure you're probably getting a trickle of information on what is going on. I have decided to depart Nile for several reasons being personal and business related. There were some opportunities presented to me that forced me to make a life altering decision and something had to give, in turn was my involvement with Nile. I wish I could have both but you can't have everything. It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make cause I do love being part of Nile. I had to weigh out all of the options for my future and stability for myself. It will be something that I miss dearly and will never forget. I'm sure there will be rumors rolling around. I'm sure this statement will bring some clarity to the crap that some people may say.

For the time being I will be focusing on my own musical material at home where demands of my career will not have as much conflict. I never intended on placing Nile into a position of stress but like I said there are
several factors to this decision. I hope the Fans of Nile can understand that at some time in everyones life will come a cross roads to where you must choose to be secure and happy with yourself. I truly enjoyed my 4 years with Nile and hope everyone did as well.

I wish Karl, Dallas and George the best of luck and I am sure they will deliver what Nile fans desire cause they deserve it. See you all soon!!!!


Hopefully the next bassist will be just as skilled. He will surely be missed by the fans. Good luck guys.

"We are now finished with the Mixes on the new Nile Album - Entitled "Annihilation of the Wicked". We are extremely happy with the Mixes Neil Kernon gave the new songs, he has given us a very clean, clear and honest yet Brutal representation of our new material.

Now we are impatiently waiting on the last step in the process- Mastering. We hope to have the Album back in our hands by the end of this week, with a release date sometime around March / April to coincide with our support slot on the U.S. King Diamond Tour."

Hey all, today i've had the honor to take a look at a new Nile fansite that is pretty cool to say the least. Here's the url: http://www.catacombsofnile.tk/. Take a look when you have the time because the guys at 4D Studios put a lot of time into this. Great Job guys!!!

tons of nile updates. I'll make them in a couple posts:

Brought to you by Karl Sanders. And without further ado:

"New Album Update = Thursday , Dec 2

All the New Nile songs for the new record have been
"finished writing/arranging" for well over a week now-
except for the very last song - the big lumbering end of the world doom
apocalypse type Nile epic- which we finished Sunday nite.
From now until we enter the studio, we will be playing the songs over
and over , getting them insanely tight and full of Dark Evil Malevolennt Conviction. I can tell folks that so far , The band has really benefitted from all the long hours of rehearsal time we have put in every night with George - the drums are super locked down , which in turn allows Dallas and I and Jon to be cement tight - and I have not heard us sound this good in years.

Monday, George Dallas and I go down to start tracking drums with Neal Kernon and Bob Moore at the Soundlab . Jon will likely be joining us on weekends and evenings as his work schedule permits for drum tracking. We hope to have all the drum tracks finished by Dec 18th, when we will break for the holidays. The plan is then to reconvene in Columbia Jan 8th to track everything else, and then Mix at Rax Trax in Chicago.

Sat Dec 5

We just finished the Last rehearsal before the record ,
an everything is sounding really ready. We will rst on sunday ,
then pack up and head for the Soundlab in Columbia to start tracking drums.

Can't wait."

"Saurian Meditation" [Nov. 6th, 2004|04:54 pm]
[Current Mood |Saurian Meditation = Delishe]
[Current Music |Opeth - Blackwater Park]

In other news... Karl Sanders' "Saurian Meditation" is an excellent album. I just got my hands on it last night and let me tell you... it's a dynamic, atmospheric trip to another world. It's the perfect music to put on and relax, think, rest, or wonder. Pick this up, you are doing yourself a favor.

I will try to do a full review in the near future, I am just too lazy right now.
