Karl Sanders - To Release New Album This Summer

Nile mastermind Karl Sanders is pleased to announce the release of his new solo album, Saurian Apocalypse, on July 22. It will be his first one in 13 years. Check out the haunting first single, "The Sun Has Set on the Age of Man", featuring guest guitar virtuoso Rusty Cooley.

Karl Sanders says about "The Sun Has Set On The Age Of Man": "The Sun Has Set On The Age Of Man" is a great choice for people’s first exposure to this album. It's the opening track of the new Saurian record, very cinematic and an eerie mood setter. Much like the score of an opening scene of a Sci-Fi movie, the song serves as an introduction for the many twisted journeys of the album that follows. It uncannily evokes that feeling we all get right after the sun has gone down and night is upon us, conjuring an awareness of the ancient, evolutionary dread of the unknown dark and its terrors that have been imprinted on the human psyche since early prehistoric man first realized that there were things in the night that would prey upon him.

"The track is also very special to me as it features two dear longtime friends of mine, original NILE drummer Pete Hammoura on percussion, and legendary guitar shredder Rusty Cooley on guest acoustic solos. Although Rusty certainly is a prolific electric guitar shredder, this track marks his debut on acoustic guitar. Thank you, Pete and Rusty!"

About time. As much as I like Nile, I'm more excited about this.

The single is superb
What is the difference between the man who fools you from the pulpit, and the other man who fools you from the platform?
Both of them seek to obtain power over you - To rule your mind, control your property interests or labor power.
