Prior to this release, Pete Hammoura left the band due to injuries sustained in an accident, feeling he could no longer drum at the level which Nile required. Derek Roddy drummed on all of the tracks (except "To Dream of Ur") as a guest. Also prior to "Black Seeds of Vengeance", Dallas Toler-Wade joined as a second guitarist/vocalist. A collection of remastered, hard to find recordings, "In the Beginning" was released later the same year.
Chief Spires left the bands a few months after the release of "Black Seeds of Vengeance", citing personal and professional differences. He was replaced by John Vesano. The band also found a new drummer in Tony Laureano. By 2002, the highly anticipated "In Their Darkened Shrines" was released and the buzz around it led to mainstream coverage the band had never experienced before. "Annihilation of the Wicked" was released in 2005.
New drummer George Kollias stepped in to fill Tony Laureano, who left before the recording began. After recording the bass for "Annihilation of the Wicked", Jon Vesano also left the band. He was temporary replaced by Joe Payne on the following tour. On July 20th 2007, the new Nile album, entitled "Ithyphallic", hit the stores in Germany, and July 23 in the rest of Europe.
The bass on this album was played by guitarist Dallas Toler-Wade. On the "Ithyphallic"-tour 2008 the bass job was executed well by Chris Lollis, also a guitarist. For some time it was not settled whether he should fill the highly technical but still withdrawn role as Nile's bass player permanently. Recently, he has left the band for unknown reasons. "Those Whom the Gods Detest" is their sixth studio album.
The album was released on November 3, 2009, in North America, and on November 6, 2009, in Europe through Nuclear Blast. It was produced and mixed by Neil Kernon, with Erik Rutan handling the drum recording. The album debuted at #160 on Billboard 200 list in United States. 2) Nile is a trip-hop artist hailing from the UK, of French / Native American origin. She has an album called ‘Born’.
