Practitioners of technical, historical-themed metal and Nuclear Blast recording artists, Nile are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a month long US Tour seeing the band play two massive sets with music spanning their prolific career. The tour recently zipped through Philadelphia’s Trocadero Theatre with Gloominous Doom, Sapremia, and Curser for a tight but enthusiastic crowd. Blow The Scene Senior Photographer, Dante Torrieri, was on hand to delivery exclusive sets of photos for your veiwing pleasure.
Nile recently released a music video for “Enduring the Eternal Molestation of Flame” which can be viewed in the YouTube player at the bottom. The clip was produced and directed by Jon Simvonis for Magnum Production Studios Co. and Arctos Broadcast Facilities. It also features the African Heritage group and photography by Philippos Kokkalis.
“It was truly an honor to direct the new Nile video; a band with so many diehard fans and such a strong impact in the metal scene,” commented Simvonis. “The video concept, as a matter of fact, was inspired by the culture and the ritual habits of the Ancient Nubia, a region along the Nile River, which is located in northern Sudan and Southern Egypt. The research and design elements of the video led to a really interesting combination of the Ancient Egyptian myths, through the prism of the Nubian African Voodoo Burial rituals. Two worlds set so close, yet so far from each other.”
