Nile lurk once again among the graves of Egyptian pharaohs and perform their darkened rites in the crypts of cyclopean pyramids and mouldy catacombs. Extraordinary, unique, scary and wonderfully authentic!

For the sixth time, Nile open the Egyptian grave-chambers and allow us a glimpse on that mythology. Tested and proven Neil Kernon (Slayer, Cannibal Corpse u.v.m.) produced the opus, providing it with a powerful, distinct sound which is the perfect base for all its intricate details. "Those whom the gods detest" attacks you with the force of a hurricane, leaving you helpless and fascinated. Technically well-versed like Death in their heyday, and simply awesome composition-wise. The title track with its threatening aura lets you really feel the curse of the ancient pharaos, and sluggish "4th arra of dagon", laden with horror effects, will also send a shiver down your spine. The spirit, the atmosphere of "Those whom the gods detest" is very close to that of "Black seeds of vengeance", Nile's classic epos. Congratulations - this is a fantastic and extraordinary piece of work. Hats off to Karl Sanders and his crew.
