カメラマン : Guillaume Catella




Tokyo hosts tonight a major band of the US brutal death metal scene, Nile, and its central soul Karl Sanders. The band comes to present and defend its last album At The Gate of Sethu, released in June 2012, for a tour of 3 dates in Japan in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya. Celebrating their 20th anniversary, Karl welcomes us in the backstage for an interview just before the show about their career and musical evolution, Egyptian influence, their last album, upcoming projects and the devaluation of metal via Internet 2.0.





Nile

The venue hosting the event is the Quattro, just big enough for a band of this size, in the always bustling entertainment district of Shibuya. Only Nile will get on stage tonight, and we directly get to the heart of the matter when the lights fade out and the intro resonates with bells and heavy percussion. The stage, soberly decorated with a flag with Nile’s effigy is relatively narrow but doesn’t bother the band which mainly stays static.




Despite the price of the ticket which could discourage more than one fan (6000 JPY, nearly $75), the venue is almost filled up. The crowd, undeniably captivated by the US death quartet, warmly welcomes the members when they get on stage. Karl’s charisma radiates, always frankly smiling to the crowd, obviously delighted of coming back to Japan, and often takes the mic to talk to the fans with his loud but poised voice. He tells us the Japanese audience is his favorite one and we know he’s sincere. He often switches his guitars, both being Dean V models.




The sound is extraordinarily well balanced, the guitars are perfectly tuned and clearly audible, and the growls remain neat, which is quite rare in such venues, and is a delicacy during their soli of guitars, especially when Karl Sanders and Dallas Toler-Wade play together. Despite being relatively static, our two front-men have a great expressivity when they address the crowd.
Nile mainly plays songs of their last two albums (At The Gate of Sethu and Whom the Gods Detest) but dare to go back to 2000’s famous “The Black Flame” never played in Japan before.




After one and a half hour of show, that passed really quickly, the band starts Lashed to the Slave Stick and asks the crowd to mosh for this second to last song, and when the Egyptian king orders, the crowd carries it out. Nile then plays their last one, Black Seeds of Vengeance, ravishing everyone’s heart, before leaving the stage with a mystic Egyptian outro. The crowd doesn’t get tired of requesting their encore, which will surprisingly and unfortunately not be granted. Nile will still get back for a series of handshakes.
