Win A Ticket To See Nile @ Stage 48 On 4/20/2014

Poster - Nile at Stage 48 - 2014

The Details: 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 their latest album “At The Gate Of Sethu”; the band reminds us why they are so respected. 2014 finds them continuing their headlining tour and the NYC appearance will find a number of talented local bringers of Metal as support. As we found them doing during the 2013 run, Nile will be performing two sets across this tour and thanks to the fine folks at CEG Presents, PiercingMetal ‘s going to put a bunch of their readers into the sure to be crushing show that will happen on Easter Sunday at the beautiful Stage 48 venue.

When and Where: Sunday April 20th at Stage 48 (605 West 48th Street, NYC)

To Participate: Diehard minions of the band are well aware of how they have these super lengthy and involved titles to their songs; for example “Permitting The Noble Dead To Descend To The Underworld” and “The Fiends Who Come To Steal The Magick Of The Deceased”. That’s pretty heavy stuff right? Now since it worked out so well for the other leg of the tours contest, I am going to invite you readers to come up with two titles of your own that use this premise and under each one please tell me what the tunes are about. For instance I came up with this one “Rising From The Crypts Of Decay To Lay Waste Upon Those Who Would Crave Death” and it’s kind of about Zombies ?. Don’t be copying the bands own songs of course since I have Google and will be confirming the submissions are legit. Be creative and impress me and know that I will be replying to the winners under their comment directly to let them know that they won. Be sure to enter your full real name and an email address in the comment form so we can reach you if you win and it never hurts to subscribe to the comments so you are alerted of that fact. Anonymous comments will be approved but are not eligible to win. Sorry, now bring it on and please only enter once. This contest will run until I receive a healthy amount of submissions to judge.

Restrictions: While all contests are open to our regional site readers, Facebook Page Likers and Twitter Followers we tend to look at new responders first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us. Of course we still encourage all to respond because you never know just how many tickets we are offering and when that last person might have won. I will say that the biggest restriction on this one is that if you have won our last Nile contest that you need to let the others in. I don’t want the same people winning for the same band with this one.

  1. 1)”Slicing Out the Tongues of the Builders of the Great Pyramids to Preserve the Corpse of the Mighty Pharoah ”
    When I learned about ancient Egypt in school, I’ll never forget the teacher telling us about how pyramids were tombs for the pharoahs and the workers who built them had their tongues cut out in order to keep the location and route inside to get to the body a secret and the body presrved inside forever. I always tried to picture what these workers were thinking and what was going through their minds as they dug and worked knowing after all that grueling work their reward was to be brutally silenced forever. And that’s what the song would explore. Was there a sense of honor? Of course it would graphically depict the slicing off of tongues in the song somewhere 😉

    2)” Rise of Souls From Buried Dead Stripped of Life From the Wrath of a Scorching Sun”
    This one will be about the early ancient Egyptians.before there was the real mummification process and they would bury their dead bodies in pits in the desert and the scorching hot sun and dryness of the sand would dehydrate them into almost lifelike natural mummies. In this song, there will be lyrics describing the process and also about the Egyptian souls rising up and haunting those who are evil and unjust, thieves, murderers, etc.

    Hope you like, Ken.
