Nile Part Ways With Dallas Toler-Wade

Dallas Toler-Wade has decided to exit Nile to “focus on his own plans and recordings.” The band have recruited Brian Kingsland (Enthean) as his replacement.


Karl Sanders said the following:

“I would like to personally thank Dallas Toler-Wade for his many years with the band, and sincerely wish him well with his music .

All of us in Nile are truly happy and thankful to be working with Brian. Not only is he a seriously talented Extreme Metal Guitar Shredder, but he has a great Brutal Metal voice , with a very versatile range . Brian is also a genuine , down-to-earth hard-working and motivated guy who has helped reignite and re-establish a sense of team work back into Nile.

With the addition of Brian on guitar and vocals, the band right now seems to me a lot more like the early years of Nile– the classic Nile era when we were all functioning as a cohesive unit , in viciously brutal triple vocal attack mode. The mood in the Nile rehearsal room for the last 3 months has been focused and relaxed; with 4 positive, energized, hard working people all on the same Metal page.

We simply can’t wait to share what we have been working on with Metal Fans on the upcoming Overkill Tour. Between the addition of Brian, and Bassist / Vocalist Brad Parris now in his 2nd year in the band , this line-up is going to crush skulls. Seriously, the last time I felt this strongly about a Nile Line-up – was when George Kollias joined the band.”

George Kollias added:

“I want to thank Dallas for everything he did for Nile all these years, its been some amazing years and I wish him the best with his new project!

Also, I want to say a big “welcome to Nile” to Brian Kingsland! Brian is an amazing guitar player/vocalist and he has brought a very fresh vibe to the band, we are so looking forward to get out there and deliver the best metal you ever heard from us! Seeyou all on the road!!”

The band will be hitting the road with Overkill, and plan to release a new album in 2018.

Nile To Release New Album “What Should Not Be Unearthed” In August

Nile have revealed the title and release date for their new album. It will be called What Should Not Be Unearthed, and it will be released on August 28.


Karl Sanders said the following about the effort:

“All of us in Nile are happy to announce our upcoming newest album ‘What Should not be Unearthed‘ . It’s our 8th official album, and this time we believe we have a truly crushing disc to bring to metal fans. The focus this time around is on brutally heavy metal riffing and songwriting ; kind of like of an AOTW approach but very streamlined to achieve maximum destructive impact. Our last record, ‘At the Gates of Sethu‘ was super surgically clean and very ‘musicianship oriented‘ whereas the new disc is a polar opposite; Unearthed is aimed straight at utter metal heaviness and memorable songwriting. Although Unearthed is still full of the kind of undeniable musicianship people have come to expect from Nile over the years , it’s the songs themselves that will hit listeners over the head this time around. These songs will be a blast to play live , and we are stoked at the opportunity to bring these songs to metal fans everywhere. See you on tour!”
