KARL SANDERS, accomplished solo artist and the driving force behind South Carolina’s Egyptian-themed death metal titans Nile, released his sophomore solo album on via THE END RECORDS. ‘Saurian Exorcisms,’ is Sanders’ magnum opus and every instrument present, including percussion, was performed by Sanders himself.
Sanders’ influences are more varied and far-reaching than Nile fans may suspect. “What I’ve been trying to do is move away from strict Egyptian kind of influences and incorporate a broader range of inspiration. The music I’m making is not strictly traditional Egyptian music. I borrow from the traditional music of many different cultures. There’s some Tibetan stuff, some Indian stuff, some Arabic stuff, and so forth.”
