Nile Founder Karl Sanders on The MetalSucks Podcast #315
Nile mastermind Karl Sanders is our guest this week. We discuss the writing process for Nile’s new album, Vile Nilotic Rites, the extensive touring prior to recording it, keeping up that momentum in the studio, the anxiety that comes with releasing new music and what made this album cycle different, how producer Mark Lewis helped strengthen its production, why he isn’t interested in playing a classic album in its entirety and more. Sanders also shares the lessons that he brings to life from training in martial arts, his current gripe with modern day reviewers of music, and if there are any secret personal lyrics behind Nile songs.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn tackle the news of Sleep’s planned indefinite hiatus, which Matt Pike band we prefer, The Black Crowes reuniting with only Chris and Rich Robinson from the classic band lineup, and Corey Taylor’s thought on writing great music sober.
Songs: Nile “Long Shadows of Dread” and “Vile Nilotic Rites”
