Nile: “I think it is somehow comforting to find an artistic meaning in a glorified death”
In this month’s issue of Terrorizer, featuring coverstar Nergal, Nile frontman Karl Sanders tells us about the seventh Nile album ‘At The Gate Of Sethu’ and how he has always enjoyed writing Nile’s lyrics.
“‘Enduring The Eternal Molestation Of Flame’ was written from a very human standpoint about a person fearful of being slowly rotten and eaten by worms, so he chooses to be immolated instead of mummified or buried,” the frontman explains.
“I think it is somehow comforting to find an artistic meaning ion a glorified death. It helps psychologically to deal with it. It is interesting to me, all those songs have on the surface Egyptian themes but I’m talking about ideas that are absolutely relevant to any person at any time.”
Pick up a copy of the new Terrorizer to read Karl talking about line-ups and Egypt, of course.
