Worship the Animal (1994: The Lost Recordings)
Style: Death Metal
Release date: 10 November, 2011
Playing time: 34:58

With six critically acclaimed albums, a few EPs and several world tours under their belt, Nile have raised the bar for extreme metal bands musically, lyrically and conceptually. Their withering live performances are nothing short of legendary.

Here is a rawer version of Nile, anno 1994. This EP presents previously unreleased work from the trio that has pushed the boundaries of death metal in the past 15 years.
On Worship the Animal, not only the sound is more primitive, but the compositions also reveal the clear print of the 90's, although Nile didn't grow to be a widely spread name in metal the way many have done.

Their death metal isn't the least straight-forward, yet it is accessible and enjoyable at many levels.

A must for the nostalgic as well as the fans.
