Nile - Black Seeds of Vengeance (2000)
For the longest time I considered this Nile's best album. That’s probably because it has two of their greatest songs: the title track and Masturbating the War God
. But then I really listened to Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka and came to the realization that was the better album. Not to say this wasn’t an incredible album too. They really upped the Egyptian thing, especially with some of the later songs. And some of the filler songs make this feel like Nile’s “dirtiest” album. Like when I listen to this album I just feel myself getting wrapped in dirty, old mummy…wrap. There’s just a bit too much filler and a few songs drag on a little bit. But as I said, you should own this because the title track and Masturbating the War God
are two of the best songs Nile have ever written.
Favorite Song: Masturbating the War God
