4th Annual Halloween Bash with Nile 

When: Sun., Oct. 31, 7 p.m. 2010
Price: $20

If you've got a mythology to explain, chances are there's a heavy metal band that wants to use it. Metal bands have roared and razed about it all, from Norse legend to Babylonian code and from Satan to Ra. Actually, Ra, the Egyptian sun god, is the specific domain of Nile, a South Carolina band that explores the ancient lords and ways of Egypt in its highly technical, agile death metal. During "Papyrus Containing The Spell To Preserve Its Possessor Against Attacks From He Who Is In The Water," from 2007's neck-stressing, Ithyphallic, frontman Karl Sanders not only mentions Ra and Amun but also drops lines like, "Drive away from me the lions of the wastes/ The crocodiles which come forth from the river." Heavy and epic, in the best ways. With Ex Deo, Psycroptic and Keep of Kalessin. —Grayson Currin
