“Are you motherf*ckers made of metal?” Fans were asked by the founding Nile guitarist Karl Sanders. Dissatisfied with the number of people who responded “yes”, he repeated the question and added “I know you speak English here!” gaining some laughs as well as more yeses. Direct support Krisiun were given a well-deserved shout-out, which received a massive round of applause. During the title track from their latest album, “Vile” Karl and Scott lock guitar necks and slide them across each other, giving fanatics yet another moment to capture digitally.
Ending with a blast from the past, “Black Seeds Of Vengeance” was the last chance moshers had to go crazy and they absolutely did. Front-rowers were pressed against the barriers as those behind them completely lost it and they circle-pitted and threw themselves around. All in all, an exciting seventy-five-minute set by technical death metal titans Nile!
