Nile discography

Nile is a three-piece American death metal band from Greenville, South Carolina formed in 1993. As of 2008, Nile consists of Karl Sanders (guitars, vocals), Dallas Toler-Wade (vocals, guitars), George Kollias (drums, percussion), with Chris Lollis in live performances, playing both bass and vocals.

The discography of Nile consists of five studio albums, two compilations, two extended plays, and two demos. In 1994, they released a self-titled demo. A year later, they followed up with Festivals of Atonement, this EP was released through their own Anubis Records label. In 1996, Ramses Bringer of War was released, a three-track demo with the title inspired by Gustav Holst's classical work "Mars, Bringer of War". In 1997, the Ramses demo was re-released by Visceral Productions on EP format. The following year, the band signed with Relapse Records and released Nile's debut album, Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka in 1998. After extensive touring to support their debut album, Relapse reissued the first two EPs in early 2000 as a compilation entitled In the Beginning, with remastered songs and new artwork. This compilation was followed by two studio albums: Black Seeds of Vengeance released the same year, and 2002's In Their Darkened Shrines. In mid 2004, guitarist Karl Sanders started working on his solo album entitled Saurian Meditation. It was released on October through Relapse Records. The following year, Nile released their fourth studio album Annihilation of the Wicked, it debuted on Swedish charts at number 27. In 2007, they released Ithyphallic, the most successful album debuting on the Billboard 200 at number 162.
