The Details: According to my records, it’s been five years since the last time that I held a contest for a Nile show and when you consider how often they come around that is far too long for my liking. I once noted that the band Nile had been on a destructive Metal path since their inception in 1993 and over the last few years their impact and influence has visibly grown more than tenfold. The bands own Metal maturity continues to broaden with each consecutive release and they will be delivering plenty of classics along with their newest material from the “Vile Nilotic Rites” album which comes out only days before the gig. The tour is “A Vile Caustic Attack” and brings along the band Terrorizer and more and thanks to the fine folks at Live Nation, some of the PiercingMetal readership will be attending this concert for free at the Gramercy Theatre.
Metal Fans can wipe away the Tuesday Blues (is there even such a thing) thanks to the announcement that Soulfly and Nile made earlier this morning. Yes you guessed it, the pair of Metal powerhouses will unite for a co-headlining tour. Check out the poster and official Press Copy below. I’ll close us out with some editorial afterwards.

Earlier in 2013, those Egyptian-themed Death Metal artisans in Nile paid a visit to NYC during their “At The Gate Of Sethu” Tour. The premise of this run was for an extended set by Nile in the form of two full sets and instead of touring with another band of note, they opted to have local support across the run of the tour. Read more below.
