For two decades, Nile have churned out pummeling, densely packed death metal that's equal parts brutal and nerdy. With tightly wound technical riffs, none of it intended for the casual metal tourist, this is willfully difficult stuff. And there's the lyrical content, an obsession with ancient Egypt and Mesopotamian mythology that's provided fodder for seven full-lengths and spawned unwieldy titles like Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka and "Chapter of Obeisance Before Giving Breath to the Inert One in the Presence of the Crescent Shaped Horns." The South Carolina crew is still touring behind the heaving mass that is 2012's At the Gate of Sethu. MATTHEW W. SULLIVAN
