Oh poor Egypt, you used to shine so bright in the Arab world. Now even Nile cries for you. When they could have used a shoulder to cry on themselves after releasing At The Gate Of Sethu.

Last album was lackluster. Hope they can deliver an Onslaught this time

Just finished listening to the entire album. Sadly I'm a bit disappointed, there's not much memorable here It's like a watered down combination of AtGoS and TWtGD. Then again, I'm not too familiar with Nile's pre-AotW material so...

No, I don't think I'll call Mr. Strawberry. I don't think he's taking calls.

Also, I don't think I've ever seen popular band's album being rated this low this early on. Aren't the fanboys usually the first ones in?

You see, "fanboy theory" is actually crap I will never rate high an album of my favorite band if I find it mediocre or bad, it's that simple....

I think you're forgetting about Lulu, Super Collider, whatever the last In Flames was called. They were rated really low from the start.

I like this album. It's Nile and it's decent. Although I miss the more epic parts Nile used to put in their songs. This is still a fairly technical and chaotic release which is the main reason I love Nile.

Evil To Cast Out Evil is such a good song (=
the rest kind of flew past me though

EDIT: oh wait, the last track has got some real personality in it

China was a neat
I tried so hard to find at least a single enjoyable part in this album but right from the start, the production irritated me and the songs flied past like bad background noise and it was a total let downer. Not even the pacing is good enough, this is played like brutal death metal instead of Nile's usual blazing fast hyper-tech death. I had high hopes for this. What a bummer. I really hope they find their touch back.

The album was enjoyable enough but was kinda sailing past me, but I suddenly found myself paying attention to a song - turned out it was Evil To Cast Out Evil
Also, I generally found myself more engaged in the second half - not sure if the music was better or I was just more tuned into it after that song
