Technical death metal Egyptologists Nile are proud to reveal that their ninth studio album, “Vile Nilotic Rites”, will be released on November 1st, 2019, via Nuclear Blast.

Today, the band offers a lyric video for the second single and title track, “Vile Nilotic Rites”, which can be seen below.

Karl Sanders comments: “"Vile Nilotic Rites" was a depraved yet fun song to write and record. Now that we are playing it live on tour, we are for sure enjoying sharing the song onstage with metal fans. "Vile" is a catchy track with a lot of variety in the tempo; from crushing heavy, to irresistible mid-paced groove, to uptempo blasting. It also has a creeping, heavy evil vibe yet with just the right amount of technicality to be an undeniably fun blast to play. The lyrics are some of my favorite on the album as are the vocal performances, par excellence from Brian and Brad, as well as some extremely brutal yet tasteful and enjoyable drum work from George. "Vile" was one of the first songs written for this album so we have certainly impatiently waited a long time to be able to bring this track to metal fans”.

“Vile Nilotic Rites” was recorded and produced by Karl Sanders at Serpent Headed Studios in Greenville, South Carolina with the exception of the drums which were recorded at Esoteron Music Studios in Athens, Greece with engineering handled by Jim Touras and George Dovolos. The album was mixed and mastered by Mark Lewis at MRL Studios. For the album artwork, the band returned to artist Michal “Xaay” Loranc, who has worked with the band for over 10 years.

“Vile Nilotic Rites” will be available in the following formats:
• CD Digipack
• Vinyl
• Limited Edition White Vinyl, Purple Vinyl & Beige Vinyl
• CD + T-shirt bundle
