are arguably the best death metal band since the genre’s heyday in the late 80’s/early 90’s, and have been consistently churning out top-notch slabs of brutality. What Should Not Be Unearthed, which is set for a late-August release, will be the band’s eighth full-length, and features ten brand new songs. One of these blissful tunes, “Call to Destruction”, has been made into a lyric video, which you can view below:

Regrettably and bizarrely, mainman Karl Sanders had to justify the lyrical and visual content of the video on his own Facebook page, as clearly some people had taken offense to the content – in the words of the man himself, “The inspiration for the song itself comes from news reports in 2012 – when radical Clerics were calling for the destruction of Egypt’s Pyramids….This is not a recruitment video for Isis. NO- Nile does not have any Religious or Political Hate messages in this song. NO, There is nothing in this song that is explicitly For OR Against ANY religion. It is a song built with quotes from Radical Extremists who believe the Pyramids should be torn down for Islamic Reasons. If anyone is daft enough to think for one second that Nile – wants to ACTUALLY tear down the pyramids – then I suggest that personal seek professional help”

It’s like Slayer and “Angel of Death” all over again – when will people learn not to draw such erroneous conclusions?
