This is NILE.

As they say in many sports: Do what works until it doesn't work anymore. That's the underlying principle to this album. Nile has certainly proved themselves as "a towering metal monolith; an icon which will inspire new growth and which casts a shadow on nearly all competition" prior to this album, and therefore, my opinion that they haven't brought anything new to the mix with "Those Whom the Gods Detest" should not be interpreted as a bad thing. Nile works the same Egyptian magic that they always have, making for yet another incredible album in a magnificent discography.

This album is exactly what you would expect from any Nile album, and if you are new to Nile, any of their last three albums (this one included) make for great starting points. As for "Those Whom the Gods Detest", this is Nile doing what works, and damn well at that.
