Nile fans, explain why you like nile. I've been watching 'papyrus' over and over and the only part that i can honestly say i like is the chours, its the magical moment where the drummers tourretes are temporarily stopped, the guitars become audible, and the singer actually goes with the song. I do not enjoy the insanely fast blast beats the drummer plays during the verses. I do respect the speed, but that kinda repetition makes me not want to give that subgenre of "extreme" metal a chance.
I also listened to sacrifice for a little bit(my comp is not a fan of youtube, b/c of dial up). Sacrifice wasn't too bad, well at least, the beginning. I like the drummers style when he plays slow. When he plays fast it just kinda runs together and doesn't sound good for the song. When I can hear the guitarists, i do like the riffs. And also, from this video, i no longer passionately hate the vocalist. In papyrus, with him being bald, he looks so ****ing annoying. I think I like sacrifice more because hes got hair and doesn't look like a douche.
Ok, well, I hope you metalheads can respect(its not gonna happen, i know) my opinion. I don't really want to hate this band. Maybe its just the way the sound is setup for them. I like krisiun, they play very similar to nile, but that just might be because all "extreme" metal sounds the same to me, (don't take offense), it sounds like JFAC, good segments of songs, but totally unorganized song structure. Lets the discussion(aka flaming the poster) begin.
