After what feels like years of teasing, Nile is finally back! Nile will release their new record The Underworld Awaits Us All on August 23 and is now streaming a song whose name is too long for headlines, “Chapter For Not Being Hung Upside Down On A Stake In The Underworld And Made To Eat Feces By The Four Apes”.

If you’re wondering where a title like that comes from, look no further than the Egyptian Book of the Dead’s 181st chapter… which of course Nile frontman and mastermind Karl Sanders knows and references.

“‘Chapter for not being Hung Upside Down’ is one of our favorite tracks on the new record,” said Sanders. “It’s a lot of fun to play, challenging and unpredictable, but with an infectiously brutal, unrestrained vibe that I am very certain will be a blast in the mosh pit during live shows.

“We are super happy to be working with Tom Flynn for the video for this song – he is a visionary with insanely creative ideas and a really cool guy to work with. Very excited for people to see what he has been cooking up with this video.”

On the album itself, Sanders continued: “We are very happy to be sharing with fans Nile‘s 10th album. We worked overtime making this record as killer as we could – because we sincerely felt fans deserved our best efforts. The Underworld Awaits Us All – and we will see you there.”

The Underworld Awaits Us All was produced and recorded at Sanders‘ own Serpent Headed Studios in Greenville, SC, and mixed and mastered by engineer Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, Whitechapel). Pre-orders for The Underworld Awaits Us All are available here.
