NILE: New 'Those Whom The Gods Detest' Trailer Posted Online

A trailer for "Those Whom The Gods Detest", the new album from South Carolina-based extreme technical death metallers NILE, can be viewed below.

Produced and mixed by Neil Kernon (NEVERMORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, QUEENSRŸCHE), along with a drum-recording job by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, VITAL REMAINS, GOATWHORE), "Those Whom the Gods Detest" features the band's strongest production and perhaps its best material to date. The cover artwork was created by Michal "Xaay" Loranc, whom NILE guitarist/vocalist Karl Sanders had previously worked with on his second solo album, "Saurian Exorcisms".

The song "Permitting the Noble Dead to Descend to the Underworld" is now available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.

Sanders told Revolver magazine earlier in the year that the band's sixth full-length album 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."

"Those Whom the Gods Detest" is scheduled for a November 3 North American release via Nuclear Blast Records.

NILE has scheduled a listening party and signing session for "Those Whom The Gods Detest" on Friday, November 6 at Earshot Records in Greenville, South Carolina beginning at at 7:00 p.m. Hear the new CD in its entirety, buy the album and have Karl Sanders, Dallas Toler-Wade and George Kollias sign it in person. Former members and contributors Jon Vesano, Mike Breazeale, Pete Hammoura and touring bassist Chris Lollis will also be on hand to celebrate.

The event is open to the public.
