Massive Metal Monday: Nile “Evil To Cast Out Evil”
  |  @   |  

South Carolina death metal titan Nile has just released its eighth studio album What Should Not Be Unearthed. The album eschews the complex technicality of the band’s past few albums, marking a return to straight forward death metal on which the band first rose to fame.

Egyptology has always been the core theme of Nile’s lyrical approach and little has changed in that department. Listening to a Nile album is like taking a very brutal trip through history. If you like traditional death metal, I highly recommend picking up a copy of What Should Not Be Unearthed. It is one of the best death metal offerings that you will hear this or any year.

This week’s Massive Metal Monday track is the second single from the album and is entitled “Evil to Cast Out Evil.” Crank it up, but not TOO loud… it might melt your speakers!

When I was growing up in rural Indiana in the early ’80s, there was very limited access to heavy music. These were the days before MTV blew up with the whole hair metal, Headbangers Ball phenomenon. But on Sunday nights, there was a two-hour radio show that came from WOXY, just across the state line in Oxford, Ohio (home of Miami University of Ohio). It was called Massive Metal for the Masses, and I would wait all week for it to air. It was through this show that I was introduced to bands like Venom, Bathory, WASP, Michael Schenker Group, Slayer, and countless others. This Monday weekly column is my tip of the hat to that show. I call it Massive Metal Monday. Every week, I will pay tribute to defining moments by the artists that laid the groundwork for heavy metal to become the worldwide cultural bond for all of us metal heads.
