OMG. The Legendary Eduardo Tarilonte ! Mr. Tarilonte is one of my all time heroes. He authors , composes , records , and releases the most AMAZING sound libraries ; the sounds of which are all over many Nile records and my side project . What a blast we had hanging out . Eduardo gave me a thorough, personal demo of his newest library - "Dark Era" . We were like kids on a playground laughing with unstoppable excitement , as he played seemingly endless amazing keyboard pieces of cinematic extravaganza . Each patch of Dark Era was more mindblowing than the last . Sounds so expressive and emotive they should be called works of art . What a great guy - I would of course have bought Dark Era without even hearing it, such is the awesomeness of all his libraries and music. But getting a comprehensive demo from the man himself - WOW ! Unforgettable. Thank you Eduardo - You rule.

With the Infamous and Incomparable Rusty Cooley at NAMM . Seeing Rusty is always a pleasure. Not just the worlds most scariest Guitar shredder, he is one of the nicest people one could ever hope to meet. Getting to spend a few hours watching him at close range shred to pieces his new Ormsby guitar was for me one of the absolute highlights of this years NAMM .Very thankful for the mindboggling guitar lesson Rusty ! :-)

What do I do to unwind from the stress of working on a new Nile record ? Kill, Kill, Kill. Currently at a 7.09 Kill/Death Ratio. Thats what keeps me sane. lol

Just finished a mix on another Nile song demo. I really like this track - epic, dark , evil and ridiculously headbanging and catchy. Really hoping it makes the record. The countdown to drum tracking in Greece is on ! :-)

Why is this Frazetta Painting on my facebook post ? No reason. Its currently the wallpaper on my DAW screen, and was kinda inspiring as I am working on writing song # 12 for the new Nile record . We start tracking drums in Greece in a few weeks, and I am far too busy working on preproduction, to the exclusion of everything else in my life- to make an ACTUAL Facebook post . lol So , no, I am not dead , or MIA , just working long hours every day to make this next record KILLER. :-)

The Infamous Mike "Unas" Breazeale. Mike has been a contributor to Nile's Music for many years now; Going all the way back to his Nile debut as the Eternal Unas on Darkened Shrines Unas Slayer of the Gods. Since then Mike has appeared as a recurring special guest vocalist on every Nile record , and occasional live guest appearances onstage with the band for 2 decades now. Mike has a special , unique gift as a vocalist who can literally do ANYTHING - from Metal vocals , to clean operatic tenor , to Utterly Epic spoken word cinema style deliveries. Besides the well known guest highlighted vocal parts Like Unas Slayer of the Gods , Those Whom the Gods Detest , What Should Not be Unearthed, etc etc Mike also helps out with innumerable not-so-obvious background vocals as well, lending his unequaled talent and impeccable vocal technique to many , many Nile songs over the years. Mike also sang on both of the Saurian Albums I did ; and the list of diverse , eclectic vocal styles and techniques on display on those 2 records is far too comprehensive to list here. Besides being just a darn treasure of vocalist - Mike has also been a steadfast and loyal friend to the band through thick and thin, never wavering and always dependable to be there for us as a musician AND a great friend. Get ready for some Killer NEW performances from Mike on the upcoming New Nile album !

I stopped by the Dean Guitars HQ and inked some very special KSV “The Black V” guitars. We’ve also got some innovative plans for 2019 in the works!

One of the greatest guys I know, Mr. Richard Young Sr. All my guitar work , for the last 2 decades , has been entrusted to his care. Talented beyond belief , and one of the nicest people I know, Mr. Young works magic on guitars. Not only can he do every guitar repair / modification imaginable with grace and effortless perfection, , he often finds ingenious creative solutions to the most inexplicable Tour related guitar issues. He makes guitars play like a dream, and sound their absolute best. In the first pic , we can see him performing an IMPECCABLE scallop job on one of my Dean V's . Thank you Mr. Young , I appreciate you from the bottom of my Heart.

Is there anything more fun in life than catching some magical spine-chilling feedback with the Marshalls cranked to 11 ?

Today, I had the good fortune to renew my Long Standing Artist Endorsement With Seymour Duncan Pickups. I have used the Invader Pickup in my guitars since the early days of Nile - and really enjoy working with the good folks at Seymour Duncan . From my official Artist Quote - “The Duncan Invader is all about Crushing Tone. Every single guitar note and chord is given huge, weighty Authority. The Invader is for when you need All-Conquering Deity -Slaying Power. I can’t even conceive of playing Nile’s music with some other pickup.”

Here we are , backstage, before the recent Houston Soulfly-Nile show , after another brain-melting , life shattering, soul-crushing and respawning , guitar lesson . Thanks Rusty, You are the Best.
