South Carolina, USA death metal warriors NILE have posted the cover art for the bands anticipated new release entitled "At The Gate Of Sethu" due to be unleashed 7/3/2012 and 6/29/2012 (EU) on NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS.

NILE's "merch chick" tour rap up on BLOGSPOT:


SOUTH CAROLINA – Ancient Egypt-themed death metal act, Nile, has revealed the cover artwork of its upcoming album, At The Gate Of Sethu, produced by a true genius of darkened visuals, Seth Siro Anton (Soilwork, Paradise Lost, Septic Flesh).

Band mastermind, Karl Sanders, commented, “Seth Siro Anton has designed the cover. I have been a fan of Septic Flesh [for] a long time, and as Seth expressed interest, I knew that he would deliver a great job. I would say his work is easily the best we've ever had. He has captured the darker side of the sound of Nile and reflected the music and ideas, the heart and soul of Nile are forming.Seth is a very talented man and understands exactly who we are.”

“It is no secret that I admire the powerful stylistic lines of the magical symbols that still transmit the aura of ancient Egypt, preserving in time the ancient mysteries,” added Seth Siro Anton. “Also, I am fascinated from the final frozen moment of the flesh captured in an eternal sleeping stasis, at the completion of the mummification process. So, with a great pleasure I accepted the challenge, to visualize the new masterpiece of Nile ‘At The Gate Of Sethu’.”

NILE will release their seventh full-length album, At The Gate Of Sethu, in Europe on June 29 and in the U.S. on July 3 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Nile recently wrapped up a U.S. tour in support of Detroit, Michigan's melodic death metal outfit, The Black Dahlia Murder, which concluded with a performance at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival on Friday night.
