Something is making me change my mind on the whole tech death thing. You can reference this exchange in the comments over my issues with tech death. Maybe it’s because of the new crop of bands that sites like Metalsucks fellate all the time are not of my taste. Admittedly I’m still a relative novice at the whole death metal thing in general. I had heard songs here and there from the band Nile which it appears have a pretty big following. And it must have been the songs that I heard that my fickle tastes didn’t much care for at the time. But since this band has a theme of Egyptian and ancient civilizations I kept going back. And glad I did, I listened to the the last album ‘ Those Whom the Gods Detest’ and it was like a light switch went off. What a punishing and awesome album that was. Well it’s been 3 years and I just got an e-mail that the wait for fans is almost over.
On June 3rd the new album ‘At the Gate of Sethu’ is set to be released via Nuclear Blast Records. Track listing and artwork to come when I get it. Looks like Cdee was right about at least one of the bands he listed in the genre. So, any recommendations on other albums in the back catalog now that I’ve been fish hooked?
