Nile never dissapoint, took me a few listens through before really getting and enjoying this album though. It's a combination of Those Whom mixed with new ideas and old, and with some of the greatest musicians around, you know it's a Nile release. I'd say in general it's a bit better than the last album, and offers a full range of heavy hitting and melodic shit.
This would be infinitely better with a more coherent mix/mastering job. The songs themselves are fairly solid, but more often than not they sound flimsy and poorly rendered, like the band recorded them inside of a tin can.
A great piece of music. As always. The sound changed a little and I still don't know my true feelings about it. In the end the compositions are the most important thing and you guys out there know about the quality of this band. Can't be worse at all.
Nile have never disappointed thus far and nor do they in their newest outing. Though the band seems to have not fulfilled their potential this time around and the production/mixing could have been way better, At The Gates Of Sethu is a worthy addition to Nile's impressive discography.
