Staff review by
Baz Anderson

Nile have been going for a long time, and are one of the few death metal bands that have been so consistently brilliant with each release for this long. Each album in the catalogue has been subtly different, and number seven At The Gate Of Sethu is no different.

  There is a good album ....
Composers and musicians were always very good at . . .

Rating: 6 Probably the worst vocals i've heard in many years among with Mameli's on the latest Pestilence album. (of course, i mean that they are awfull in comparison with the amazing vocal work these 2 bands used to have on their previous albums)

Rating: 7 The Nile talk in pub thread made me to listen to this record again, I enjoyed it funnily !

Rating: 5 Same, thanks Joe for reminding me about this.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with you. The whole thing sounds paper thin. Some songs are aimless and sound almost unfinished. The riffs are weak and unoriginal. It's not even technically interesting. Where is that groove and that atmosphere? Even the interludes sound like they're put there because they felt compelled to. The instrumental bonus tracks are actually much more satisfying in terms of production. They sound fuller than the rest of the album, and they're not ruined by the inconsistent and too prominent vocals.

I am extremely disappointed and thankful I didn't listen to this earlier. This album is a pale imitation of what they were before.

  Good choice of detox songs. My fave Nile tracks.

You can brush up against me instead

That's enough creepy talk from me today.

Rating: 5 Hey, good for you if you like it. I'd have loved to love it. I was a huge fan of Nile, and it's not pleasant to be this disappointed.

  Hmm, I remember liking this enough to buy it when I saw it in the local record store. Wasn't exactly blown away by it but I don't think it's a significant departure from their back catalog.

It sounded to me like a watered down version of their back catalog. It's not terrible, but from what I remember it just made me wanna listen to their better albums.

Rating: 8 I'm confused. I liked the vocals here (even the guest one, like in "The Fiends Who Come To Steal The Magick Of The Deceased") and the Pestilence's new one (Actually, it is the only thing that I liked from that album).

Rating: 7 Some masterfully crafted moments here and there - particularly on the first three tracks - but overall it's just passable Nile...which is still good.
