I agree with the reviews of "All Shall Fall" here. I took some time yesterday to give the new Immortal and Nile works a listen (gotta listen to 'em before I bash 'em). New Immortal is hideously boring, and this is coming from a "Sons of Northern Darkness" apologist. SoND was at least a "fun" record, combined with typical Immortal "epicness". It communicated noting, but at least it kept your attention. This new one was so bland I couldn't even say when one song ended and a new one started. There's no power, no soul and no meaning in this. I actually preferred the Nile album, and that's saying something.
A few words concerning Nile: They always struck me as very able musicians who had the potential of making great music, yet chose to remain at the level of lucrative plebeian "brutal" death metal with a pseudo "exotic" element of more or less middle-eastern scales and "mysterious" keyboard interludes every third song. A real shame.
