Nile To Start Recording New Album

It looks like Nile are going to start recording their new album really soon. Karl Sanders confirmed the news in the below video update and also revealed that the band have 12 tracks written for the effort.


Karl Sanders On Next Nile Album: “It’s Dark, Evil And Epic”

Nile previously said they were working on a new album with producer Erik Rutan and now Karl Sanders has offered an update on the effort. He told Underground’s Voice the following when asked when fans can expect to hear it:

“Probably by the end of the year. We’ve got six songs finished so far. It’s dark, evil and epic. It’s got its own spirit. It’s not exactly like any of the ones that came before it. I would say it’s closer in spirit to the older albums.”

On another note, he also talked about parting ways with Dallas Toler-Wade:

“We don’t consider it a loss. We considered it an opportunity to move forward. The new guy we got, Brian [Kingsland], is an amazing talent. I’m sure you’ll see tonight. He has allowed the band to step forward and move forward.”

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.
