Nile: What Should Not Be Unearthed
Cairo-practitioners return to a majestic scale
Nile haven’t been quite on their best run of form.
Their last album, At The Gates Of Sethu, was forgettable, while prior to that, Those Whom The Gods Detest had a few killer songs (opener Kafir! in particular) but much of the album slid past with insufficient drama. So What Should Not Be Unearthed is a pleasant surprise – of the brutal, evil variety, obviously.
