South Carolina-based extreme technical death metallers NILE have issued the following update from guitarist/vocalist Karl Sanders:
"We are finished tracking drums for the new Nile album - George (Kollias, drums), Dallas (Toler-Wade, guitar/vocals), Neil Kernon (producer) and I spent a week with Bob Moore at the Soundlab in Columbia, SC,tracking drums.
We were expecting a long grueling session - some of this material is very compositionally challenging and technically demanding; but George knocked it out, finishing a FULL WEEK ahead of schedule. OMG. Some of the drumming on this record will be boggling people's minds for years to come.
At the moment we are back in Greenville, and will commence tracking guitars any day now."
Nile's new album is expected in early 2012. Stay tuned for updates.
