NILE
Nile was formed in 1993 by Karl Sanders (guitar, vocals), Chief Spires (bass, vocals), and Pete Hammoura (drums). They have always had interest in Egyptian history and culture; thus they combined that interest with Death Metal. In 1994 they released their self-titled demo. A year later they released "Festivals of Atonement" as Cassette/CD and also performed a few live shows with bands such as Obituary, Deicide, and Six Feet Under.

In 1996 they got a new guitarist (Dallas Toler-Wade), a deal with Visceral Productions, and released "Ramses Bringer of War." Shortly after, Relapse Records saw them play live and listened to their CD's. They offered them a deal, and Nile agreed. And so Nile recorded and released their full-length debut "Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka," and after the release, they did an 8-month world tour. After their return in 1999, they began working on their next album; it was very tough to make it, and it took a year just to write the lyrics. Sanders spent every night composing, and finally in 2000 they released "Black Seeds of Vengeance".

In 2002, the band returned to work with Bob Moore at Soundlab Studios (with new vocalist & bassist Jon Vesano replacing Chief Spires and drummer Tony Laureano replacing Hammoura in tow) for the production of the new album "In Their Darkened Shrines". Again, the band would rest before committing themselves to recording 2005’s Annihilation Of The Wicked with engineer Bob Moore and producer/mixer Neil Kernon (Judas Priest, Nevermore) at Soundlab. Two years and a new record label later, NILE return with "Ithyphallic" (referring to the ancient practice of portraying statues of gods with huge, mystically-proportioned phalluses as a sign of strength and fertility).

In June 2009, Nile entered the recording studio to begin work on their sixth full-length album, entitled Those Whom the Gods Detest. The album was released in November of the same year. On October 21, 2010, Chris Lollis was confirmed as the new permanent bassist for Nile, after four years of session work with the band. On October 11, 2011, Goomba Music released Worship the Animal, which is an alternately titled version of Nile's demo, which the band's original line-up r
