Ok, first off, One of the best albums of 2002, period. Now that that's over with.......Nile has produced an album that takes what they already did to push the limits of death metal and pushes it even further. They blend their new-era Morbid Angel style with even more Egyptian instruments to create an extremely creepy atmosphere that most bands only dream of. Tunes like "Sarcophogus", "Unas Slayer of the Gods", Churning the Mealstrom" and the godlike march of "Hall Of Saurian Entombment" grab you and drag you off to a war like something you only see in "The Mummy" movies. Get this album or die.
