We are they whom the gods detest. Unrepentant I deny the secrecy of the texts Impenitent I blaspheme the sacred scrolls Unwilling to submit I embrace what Ra hath called profane. I shall not hail to he who rises and sets I shall not bend to he who imprisons myriads at his will He who would bathe in my blood And drink my gore. Then I read a Book of the Dead verse referring to Those whom the Gods Detest and thought to myself: Hey what about a song from the point of view of the rebel fiends? We have done a whole bunch of songs in Nile about destroying the enemies of Ra; it might be a more fun to hang out with the bad guys instead, the ones who steadfastly embraced their damnation and destruction. Like the idea of saying to one’s executioner Oh yeah, bring it on biatch, do your worst.

Album Name Those Whom the Gods Detest. The album’s more eccentric areas, instrumentally, are rewarded with a higher place in the mix; no longer do the Middle Eastern tones dissipate amongst waves of riffs, but become much more prominent as the album moves through its tracks. Yet again the band stick very close to the Egyptological theme that made them such a breathe of fresh air to start with, and Karl Sanders’ liner notes are yet again extensive and well written, adding a completeness to the package that many bands forget.

The first noticeable difference between Those Whom the Gods Detest and Nile’s past releases is the sound quality. Finally, The guitars do not sound like a two-year old trying to play the electric violin. As a result from the revamped sound quality, guitar notes and chords are easier to decipher, and the band sounds crystal clear
