Nile @ B.B. King Blues Club (2/6/2006)

Logo - Nile

Artist: Nile
Venue: B.B. King Blues Club – NYC
Opener: Hypocrisy
Date: 2/6/2006
Label: Relapse Records

The appearance of Nile and Hypocrisy would be the first adventure into the Death Metal world that I would take in 2006 and to be honest I could not think of two more formidable bands to be featured on one bill. The venue would be the ever stalwart supporter of Metal (B.B. King Blues Club) and the tour billed as “The Annihilation Tour” would be just that. It is named after the new Nile release “Annihilation Of The Wicked”. Openers Soilent Green, Raging Speedhorn and Decapitated would also be performing and the full room very early in the night was a great sign of the level of interest this show had. I missed Decapitated in their entirety and some friends told me that they truly kicked some ass. I did catch SPV Records artist Raging Speedhorn and found them to be as energetic and intense live as Soilent Green. However, both bands are on the new side for my listening and will be looked more into in the future. Through all of these sets of brutality you could see the response positive and feel the excitement as they were getting ready for Hypocrisy and Nile.

Artist: King Diamond
Venue: B.B. King Blues Club (New York, NY)
Opener: Nile, Behemoth, Black Dahlia Murder
Date: 4-20-2005
Label: Metal Blade Records

The King Returns!!! Long Live The King!!!! It has been over a year since King Diamond last made the rounds to the City that never sleeps and for two sold-out nights B.B. King Blues Club was the place to be. Joining him would be a truly killer lineup for not only did he arrive with Metal Blade label mates Black Dahlia Murder but also Nile and the mighty Behemoth as well. All bands would be delivering the metal goods this evening. Initially I was surprised that King Diamond, a more “traditional” metal performer would travel with three Death Metal bands, but it all worked out very well in the end.
