South Carolina death metal masters Nile are making their long awaited return to Aotearoa in April 2020, to play a blistering pair of shows alongside UK "Kings of Slam" Ingested. Formed in 1993 and still fronted by founding member Karl Sanders, Nile's unsparingly ferocious and bone-crushingly heavy anthems have drawn inspiration from Ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern mysticism along with the esoteric works of H.P. Lovecraft, over nine studio albums including 2019's Vile Nilotic Rites. Emerging from 2006 Manchester, Ingested have pummelled the eardrums of fans across the globe with their uncompromising metal assault over four studio albums and a fistful of EPs thus far, including their rapturously received latest album, 2018's The Level Above Human. Both groups will be delivering the goods in Auckland and Wellington this coming autumn...

UPDATE 17/03/20: All current Valhalla Touring and Soundworks tours – including Nile's NZ tour and Thrash Blast Grind Tour 2020 w/ Exhumed & King Parrot – are to be postponed due to ongoing developments with current world health issues, read the full statement here.

Press release:

There is death metal and then there is NILE. Devastatingly uncontestable, NILE’s technical ferocity shows utterly zero signs of diminishing with the new album Vile Nilotic Rites. Containing 11 songs that are as sharp as obsidian blades and as heavy as nine Nubian pyramids, the rulers have instilled a hammer blow of god-like heaviness. The time has surfaced to reacquaint diehard New Zealand fans with NILE’s saurian whirlwind and provocative funerary spells.

Emanating from the UK, self-proclaimed Kings of Slam INGESTED are forcing their way into New Zealand for the very first time. With raw & aggressive gutturals, groove-laden guitar work, blistering drums, and slamming hooks, INGESTED continues to push the boundaries of international dominance in every direction both on record and live.
