Two death metal stalwarts, both weaned on the teat of the cosmic-demonic stylings of Morbid Angel, unite for unyielding brutality to celebrate their strongest albums yet. Nile's Those Whom the Gods Detest opens the portals to the ancient ones even wider with their sickest and, of course, still Middle-Eastern-sounding cacophony. Immolation's forthcoming, Majesty & Decay, is the perfect meld of old-school apocalyptic rawness and the militant, streamlined approach found on Harnessing Ruin.
