It was a celebration for the lovers of the dark arts, and Incantation came and conquered Los Angeles.

George Kollias

The main headliner was no other than the magnificent destroyers of catacombs, Nile. With a few line up changes Karl Sanders and George Kollias still remain the pharos bringing Egyptian chants and face melting metal. Nile set the stage on fire, with Brad Parris on vocals and bass, along with a new familiar face, Scott Eames of Nevalra, and Thy Antichrist on guitars. Both Brad Parris and Scott Eames exchanged vocals delivering that signature sound Nile has been known for years. It was such a brutal sight to see them deliver such a perfectly balanced utterance and musicianship. Fans were astonished by Karl Sanders guitar virtuosity and the never ending hammering on drums by George Kollias, the sounds of the undead pervaded the venue and beer was thrown as fans moshed relentlessly. The sonic power of Nile obliterates all that stands before them, with skill, gory vocals, shredding guitars and catatonic drumming all elements adored by those whom the gods detest. The tracks performed ranged from “Black Seeds of Vengance” to “Vile Nilotic Rites”, a malevolent return to the stage.
