  • KARL SANDERS’ Special Guest Appearance on new EX DEO album!

    EX DEO, the new Roman themed band featuring Maurizio Iacono of KATAKLYSM announced that Karl Sanders (NILE) makes a special guest appearance on the new album, Romulus where Karl laid down a ripping solo on the track "The Final War (The Battle Of Actium)" which deals with Antony and Cleopatra's defiance of Octivian in Egypt.

    From June 15th until June 18th, fans will be able to listen to entire album exclusively on the band’s MySpace page! Click here: http://myspace.com/exdeo

    Make sure to check out the track “The Final War (The Battle of Actium)” where Karl Sanders laid down a ripping solo!
    Commented Maurizio Iacono: "It's an honor for me that such talented musicians and friends lent their art for a couple songs on this album. I only asked a few selected people that had involvement with history through their music and related to this band's concept, so I salute them for contributing to Rome's rise and they shall be amply rewarded for it."

    EX DEO recently tapped renowned director Stanimir "Staca" Lukic to helm the video for the title track of the group's upcoming debut album, Romulus. The clip was filmed in early March in Belgrade, Serbia where the magic of Rome was recreated.

  • NILE - WORKING ON VERY SPECIAL, BRUTAL AND DYNAMIC NEW ALBUM

    Guitarist/songwriter Karl Sanders gives us a glimpse into what NILE is doing to ensure upcoming recording sessions at Mana Studios in Florida with Erik Rutan and Neil Kernon are crisis-free:

    "George [Kollias] is notorious for drumming himself into ill-health during pre-production. He maniacally, slavishly, works at his craft - Extreme Metal Drumming - like a fiend 8 or 10 hours every single day with no breaks for weeks, all the while attempting to subsist on a diet consisting solely of long periods of self-imposed starvation and only occasionally interrupted by coffee, doughnuts, chocolate bars and bargain drive-thru cheeseburgers.

    So, inevitably (no surprise here), over the course of the pre-production rehearsals, he runs his health completely into the ground every time. Exhaustion, fatigue, and injuries seem to plague him on every album. So what Dallas and I always have to do is just refuse to allow George to rehearse anymore, force-rest him, and nearly tie him down in order to force feed him some steaks, veggies and potatoes. Sheesh. Drummers.

    I suppose though, that I really appreciate a serious workaholic attitude like George displays - he gives 500% of himself to Metal. He's dedicated, ready, willing and able to work hard, sacrifice and do whatever it takes to play the demanding NILE material. I wouldn't trade him for anybody."

    Producer Neil Kernon adds:

    "The more preparation you do prior to recording the better, so as soon as the recording starts, things go smoothly and keep on the schedule you've set. The more thoroughly everyone involved knows what they have to do, the less chance there is of the ball being dropped once we're under way.

    NILE's work ethic is fantastic. They are one of the hardest working bands I know, and each member of the band is constantly pushing the others to excel in what they do, and to try new things. That attitude keeps everyone striving to do better each time around. This new stuff is absolutely the most intense and challenging material they have thrown at me yet, and I'm loving it!

    Doing pre-production in the same room together really helps gel the project. We have discussions about drum heads, drum sticks, and guitar and bass strings - making sure we have plenty of all the right types etc. We also get the amps re-tubed if necessary, and the guitars go off to the shop to be cleaned up so that everything is in perfect running order so we hit the ground running.

    Me learning the material is a very important issue. I like to be as prepared as I can possibly be. It gives everyone an opportunity to go over the material over and over again ‘off the clock’ to make any tweaks or adjustments before we get into the studio itself - that way there's no loss of momentum. Any changes made to the songs are worked in, absorbed and executed with confidence and without uncertainly. I like to feel the momentum pick up when rehearsals are wrapping up, the vans are loaded up, and we all head off on the road trip to the studio. It's like a battalion going off to war, and is a really exciting feeling."

    From Mana Recording Studios, Erik Rutan checks in with an update on new equipment purchased specifically to record the new NILE album:

    "An album is like a canvas, and you only have so much space to fit everything. By using various mic pres with different characteristics, you can create more space and have each individual instrument have more of its own vibe and distinct tone. After talking to George [Kollias] and Neil [Kernon] and finding out that George likes to have only acoustic toms rather than sampled toms, I decided to buy a Vintech 473 mic pre, which has 4 channels. This way I would be able to track all six of George's toms through all six of these incredible mic pres. I love the way they sound for toms and guitars. Very warm and rich. I also recently purchased a Great River MP2NV, which sounds amazing for ride and hats, or for overheads. Various mic p
