Nile have announced that their new album What Should Not Be Unearthed – which is currently in the the mixing stage – will see its release on August 28th through Nuclear Blast Records. Bandleader Karl Sanders offered:
“All of us in Nile are happy to announce our upcoming newest album What Should Not Be Unearthed. It’s our 8th official album, and this time we believe we have a truly crushing disc to bring to metal fans. The focus this time around is on brutally Heavy Metal riffing and songwriting; kind of like of an Annihilation Of The Wicked approach but very streamlined to achieve maximum destructive impact. Our last record, At The Gates Of Sethu, was super surgically clean and very ‘musicianship oriented’ whereas the new disc is a polar opposite; Unearthed is aimed straight at utter metal heaviness and memorable songwriting. Although Unearthed is still full of the kind of undeniable musicianship people have come to expect from Nile over the years, it’s the songs themselves that will hit listeners over the head this time around. These songs will be a blast to play live, and we are stoked at the opportunity to bring these songs to metal fans everywhere. See you on tour!”
The band themselves produced the album while Neil Kernon (Cannibal Corpse, Nevermore) is handling mixing duties. Album artwork was done by Michal ‘Xaay’ Loranc and can be seen below.
