Karl Sanders: 20 Years Of NILE & The State Of Death Metal In 2013!
The reigning kings of technical, historically-themed brutality, NILE, are currently trekking all over North America on what they have dubbed as the "At The Gate Of Sethu North American Tour" (agenda available below). On this not to be missed tour, NILE is performing two sets per show (for the first time in their career) in celebration of the bands 20th anniversary.
Additionally, the band is only performing with unsigned local bands at each market in order to help impulse the underground of Heavy Music. Well done, NILE!
Prior to the bands recent concert at B.B. King in New York City, which took place on Sunday, March 10, we had the chance to chat with the bands vocalist and guitarist Karl Sanders. During the chat we discussed the bands 20th anniversary tour and his decision to only have local bands opening each and every show. We also talked about the bands latest album 'At The Gate Of Sethu', and he even offered an update on the state of Death Metal in 2013. So buckle up, crank the volume, and enjoy!
