Egyptian themed death metal band Nile is scheduled to play Peabody's Downunder in Cleveland this Wednseday January 20th on their Those Whom The Gods Detest North American Tour 2010. The tour is in support of their latest album Those Whom The Gods Detest.

Nile has carved a unique niche for themselves by intigrating Middle Eastern music and Egyptian instruments with their already extremely complex and technical music stylings. Signing with Nuclear Blast Records back in May 2006, the band has been allowed the opportuniity to reach a wider audience with a couple headlining tours and even a spot on the 2007 Ozzfest of which Nile frontman Karl Sanders indicated "they were excited to finally bring true death metal to an Ozzfest audience".

Supporting Nile on their current tour are equally technichal and brutal bands: Immolation, Dreaming Dead and Krision (who also toured with Nile on their international leg of the Those Whom The Gods Detest Tour).  Doors open at 6:30pm and tickets are still available.
