Nile Posts “Evil To Cast Out Evil” Lyric Video

Nile just released a lyric video for the track “Evil To Cast Out Evil,” taken from impending full-length album “What Should Not Be Unearthed,” due out August 28 through Nuclear Blast. Mastermind Karl Sanders states:

“Out of sheer appreciation for our fans, who have unequivocally made known their demands ; the members of Nile have agreed to release a second preview track from our upcoming ‘What Should Not be Unearthed’ album.

“The song is called ‘Evil to Cast out Evil. This lyric video comes without a prefaced disclaimer, or warning label, as it seems that some listeners / viewers completely ignore them anyway, and are determined to glean whatever random arbitrary messages from the song they damn well please. Well, OK, we understand – music and music videos are inherently artistic by nature, and are therefore OF COURSE subject to interpretation by the audience.

“But don’t say we didn’t warn you. The danger this time is not from radical terrorists, religious fanatics, left wing apologist sympathizers, self-important music critics, or right wing ultra-nationalists deliberately misinterpreting our music – hell bent on imposing Fox News ideology upon unsuspecting music fans.

“No, the danger this time is to your mortal soul. If upon hearing this song, you insist on repeated listens, or interminably bang your head, or even feel compelled against your will to sing along with this uber catchy metal anthem; then don’t blame us if you wake up the next morning with your head spinning around backwards, hurling green vomit, walking down stairs upside down on all fours like an inverted spider, or speaking to your Mom in a cookie monster voice at the breakfast table, or otherwise channeling the possessed spirit of Linda Blair. You have been sufficiently warned. Have a nice day and see you on tour!”

Relapse To Reissue Death’s "Spiritual Healing" As Multi-Disc Set

The next chapter in Relapse’s Death reissue campaign will be the “Spiritual Healing” album. The label comments:

“Originally released in 1990, Spiritual Healing marked a new turn in the Death discography, one which ushered in cleaner production, a new level of boundary pushing musicianship and songwriting skills that were previously unimaginable from a metal band. Spiritual Healing sets the standard for riffs, insane time changes and of course mainman Chuck Schuldiner’s masterful guitar solos.

“Now reissued as a double CD housed in super deluxe packaging featuring brand new liner notes from Death players James Murphy and Terry Butler, Chuck’s sister Beth Schuldiner and Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen, Disc 1 features a completely new remaster of the original album and Disc 2 contains 16 previously unreleased rehearsal, outtakes and studio instrumentals. A remastered version of the track “Living Monstrosity” can be heard below.
