Or in one. Either or.
I recently watched a documentary on Egyptian ruins and immediately thought of Nile.
When I think Egypt, I think Nile. Don’t we all?
Now, the South Carolina-based extreme technical death metal outfit will release their seventh full-length album, At The Gate Of Sethu, in Europe on June 29 and in the U.S. on July 3 via Nuclear Blast Records.
That there is the album art, and I think it’s awesome.
The artwork was designed by Seth Siro Anton.
“Seth Siro Anton has designed the cover. I have been a fan of Septicflesh a long time, and as Seth expressed interest, I knew that he would deliver a great job,” said Karl Sanders.
“I would say his work is easily the best we’ve ever had. He has captured the darker side of the sound of Nile and reflected the music and ideas, the heart and soul of Nile are forming. Seth is a very talented man and understands exactly who we are,” Karl added.
For his part, Seth Siro Anton said: “It is no secret that I admire the powerful stylistic lines of the magical symbols that still transmit the aura of ancient Egypt, preserving in time the ancient mysteries. Also, I am fascinated from the final frozen moment of the flesh captured in an eternal sleeping stasis, at the completion of the mummification process. So, with a great pleasure I accepted the challenge, to visualize the new masterpiece of Nile, At The Gate Of Sethu.”
