I have had some quite hard time remembering most of the songs, some parts of them being a little monotonous. There just does not seem to be much I can say about the album that warrants a recommendation. Account deleted Written by axelx on Personally I like it. The drums are incredibly clicky and annoying, which is a shame because George Kollias’s playing is probably the best part of the album. The tone feels more like Nile is aiming for speed and technicality rather than brutality.

The track “Supreme Humanism Of Megalomania” starts with melodic riffing style, which is something we don’t usually expect while listening to Nile. None of this attention to detail is included here, or if nile at the gates of sethu is it is very poorly mixed. Overall, I feel that this is not the death knell for Nile. Stellar performances all around and some great death metal influenced by egyptian themes.

I don’t see where the problem is. I’ll try to get on with it! Having in my view delivered such a tall order with the recent “Those Whom the Gods Detest”, I was dismayed, though not surprised, when the samples of “At The Gate of Sethu” that floated my way did not excite me.

I assume it’s the more clean vocal parts that he’s done, but I am a bit unsure about this.

The biggest change that I noticed listening to this album for the thee time was the stylistic emphasis of the band from the previous album.

Either that or njle the Gate of Sethu” is a masterpiece that I have yet to fathom. Australia I don’t think the production is that bad really, i mean it’s clear that there is a lack of any general ‘loudness’ or ‘punch’ to the album, but if you listen for awhile you forget that.


Everyone’s main complaint and mine at the first listen was the production. It sort of makes me question if Nile really are running out of tbe. They used ex-Nile member Jon Vesano a lot for the vocal work on this record. I find this album great, definitely not as great as the previous ones, yes they’ve changed but I believe this change is acceptable and I like it Kem Khefa Kheshef Loading From the offset the tracks blast their way through with incredible breakneck drumming from George Kollias and intricate technical guitar work from Karl Sanders and Nile at the gates of sethu Toler-Wade.


The first and biggest problem that I have are the vocals. While the complexity and technicality of Nile is still present for all to see, I feel that a certain degree of complacency has crept into the band’s mindset with regards to songwriting and the final product. Some Nile fans will enjoy it, others will not. The vocals, and here is where the band falters in creativity, just do not sound powerful or are delivered with the finesse that the band achieved back on ITDS and AOTW.

Nile – At the Gate of Sethu – Reviews – Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives

I kind of doubt there is anything on here that no one else gatex play, but there is still some moderately interesting stuff. In the end, save your hard-earned money and buy Nervecell’s Pyshcogenocide or Te Decapitation’s latest REAL masterpiece, Monolith of Inhumanity, if you really are in the mood for some sethh death metal. At the Gate of Sehtu will no doubt become a divisive album in a catalog notably short of those, but, hopefully, the elements that initially trigger those knee jerk feelings of betrayal in the first place will eventually be seen for nile at the gates of sethu they are: There are some impressive fills like on Enduring the Eternal Molestation of the Flame and The Fiends Who Come to Steal the Magick of the Deceased, but a lot of other songs feature skilled drumming, and it feels that for a pure death metal album, his talents are not being used to the fullest to contribute to the band.


There was still many flaws in my opinion, but I found it to be better than at least one of their releases, namely ‘Black Seeds of Vengeance’.



nile at the gates of sethu The album feels like Nile’s work, but a very watered down version at that. In Their Darkened Shrines forced people to realize how excellent you were at infusing choral sounds effects with metal.

I was anxious to play Sethu, and when I did, I received a slap right across my face. As a result, the dynamics of many songs come off a little flat. The words are flying at you almost as fast as the rest of the music, so it does become a bit trying to hear everything correctly versus a slow mumbling. But mostly, I just think this record suffers from a bad batch of riffs. Instead, by writing a record full of flat, uninspired riffs and not thinking outside the box, he’s now angered Hitler anyway.

European Summer Tour 7. I agree with this review very well.

Nile – At the Gate of Sethu Review

Both Dallas and Karl delivers nie of fast riffs with exceptional precision. I don’t know if having a “real” bassist would have made things different, but it’s not a major issue. It might take a few more listens as Baz said.
