Due to being incredibly busy here at my real job, I’ll be rarely able to make a post. Not only do I have this job kicking my ass, I also have Nile to see on Wednesday and take some photos of them and write their review. I’m also currently listening to 3 Inches of Blood, At The Graves and Inverloch for review. So that is what to expect either later this week or next week.
Another development this week is the fact that Headbang or GTFO will be an official DOT COM website this week. The transition is already happening and I’ll finally have a real URL. Hurray!
So with that said please have a great day/week and keep listening to the only music that truly matters. Now here is your Monday morning rise and grind: Anal Cunt, Wormrot, Insect Warfare & Terrorizer
George Kollias, master of the drum kit and current touring act for NILE, is releasing a DVD this summer through Hudson Music to educate and show off his abilities that you wish you could do. Technique, blasting, double bass and timing….you’ll witness it all in the DVD and you can catch a small glimpse of what is to come in the video below. Holy shit this guy is fast.
Nile is obviously one of my favorite bands, I search YouTube all the time to try to find amazing footage of the band playing live. This month I get to see Nile perform a headlining set for the first time ever, the anticipation is killing me. For now, I quench my thirst for blood with a few videos I recently found. Enjoy.
Nile is one of those few bands that really truly fucking bring it release after release, show after show, night after night, year after year. Since the 90’s, Nile has been telling stories of gods, slaves, torture and giant fucking gators. Mixing ancient Egyptian mythology with the intensity of death metal and implementing middle eastern influences into the music, Nile has created something unique in a genre where everything is about murder and Satan, well usually. Anyways, I’m seeing Nile next month and I’ve been getting fucking pumped up to see them ABSOLUTELY DESTROY Lawrence, KS. I’ve had this playlist I found of them playing live last year on constant loop for about a week now. So I thought I’d share it with you. The sound and picture quality is one of the best I’ve found of the band performing live so enjoy your Ash Wednesday (and my birthday) with some fucking NILE!!!!
Today’s Random Lyric of the Day is another epic conclusion ti a great album. Nile always has a badass song to close out on. Today is no exception and may just be the best closing track since Annihilation of the Wicked. “Iskander Dhul Karnon” is mindblowing. NOTHING WILL EVER BE BETTER THAN THIS EVER. Lyrics after the jump, as usual.
