Best Nile Songs

Nile is a Technical Death Metal band,they are know for their amazing 280 beats per minute blast beats. Top 10 Songs of my favourite band ever!

The Top Ten

1 Annihilation of the Wicked

In my top 5 death metal albums of all time! Riffs and guitar tone are huge and the title track showcases all aspects of Nile's sound.

The lead guitar at the start and end are pure demonic art at its best.

The best ever by them in my opinion. - blasphemian

The song was just outstanding... Nothing else. - NikoX

2 Kafir!

I love the chanting of this song"there is no god". Best chant ever it is also one of the most darkest and demonic song of there's. This is the best song! Connor

Paradox, first he says There is no God except the true God and then he says there is no God, but why? - GREYBOYY

Oh this is magic, one of the heaviest of all time! - Ananya

3 Cast Down the Heretic

Kick-ass song should be up with kafir..
And where is The Fiends Who Come to Steal the Magick of the Deceased?
The Fiends Who Come to Steal the Magick of the Deceased is amazing song it is my favourite... Nile is the 2nd best technical death metal band after Death.. Nobody will be able to beat Death.. - nooreldeen

The solo is the best part. Not their best and I wouldn't even put it in the top 5.

6 Black Seeds of Vengeance
7 Von Unaussprechlichen Kulten

Slow but fast at the same time. I can feel the demonic spirits awakening in their grave.

8 User-Maat-Re

As soon as I heard this song it was instantly my favourite Nile song. That acoustic intro, badass opening riff, the closing leads and solos and the growls make this song perfection. Must be in the top ten!

This song doesn't deserve a position so down the list. Such a pity for people who have voted in this list.

12? Are kidding me? Or You are not Nile fan and death metal? Hum? - Fenriz

9 The Language of the Shadows
10 In the Name of Amun

The Contenders

11 The Blessed Dead
12 Evil to Cast Out Evil
13 Sacrifice Unto Sebek

Heaviest song by Nile! Insane Drumming! This should be #2 easily. Vote!

14 Papyrus Containing the Spell to Preserve Its Possessor Against Attacks from He Who is in the Water
15 Enduring the Eternal Molestation of Flame

Um... It seems too many little girls is on this site :))
Come on metalhead... Vote this song! - Fenriz

16 Sarcophagus

Great song... Deserves top ten...

The outro alone easily puts this song in the top 10.

This song should definitely be in the top 10.

Awesome songs should be in the top 10 defienetly

17 The Essential Salts

Starting off with the immense brutal tempo, and sharp notes, it blasts you through the song, until the melodic Egyptian outro takes over, leaving the listener with the opportunity to replay one of the best brutal, technical and melodic Death Metal songs ever!

18 Permitting the Noble Dead to Descend to the Underworld

Clean blast beats. Every melody sounds like it's straight from the deserts.

Oh my god... Middle solo is amazing... Riff drum vocal and everything of this song is amazing and must be 5 at least... But it is'nt on this list :|
I added this and please real nile fans vote - Fenriz

19 Barra Edinazzu
20 Those Whom the Gods Detest

Definitely deserves to be higher up

21? Oh my god! This list is joke - Fenriz

21 The Burning Pits of the Duat
22 Eat of the Dead
23 What Can Be Safely Written

Their best song... 8 minutes death metal!

Egyptian metal

25 Chapter of Obeisance Before Giving Breath to the Inert One in the Presence of the Crescent Shaped Horns
26 Execration Text
27 Smashing the Antiu
28 To Dream of Ur

The Stairway to Heaven of Death Metal! Should be number 1 tied with Annihilation of the wicked!

How is it this got no vote until I came along?

Simply epic

29 Call to Destruction
30 Wrought

Great song from their early days! But the cover is wrong. That's from the band Peratus. This Nile song is from their EP Festivals of Atonement.

P.S. rock on Nile!

31 The Fiends Who Come to Steal the Magick of the Deceased
32 Ithyphallic
33 The Black Hand of Set
34 Even the Gods Must Die
35 Masturbating the War God

It's a joke that this is 33.

This stands with Annihilation of the wicked, Kafir and In the name of Amun.
