Recently we received the news that Death Metal band Nile had signed to Napalm Records, and the label has released news of the additional signing of the band’s mastermind Karl Sanders for his existing solo project Saurian, with plans to release new Saurian music next year.
The first two Saurian project albums, Saurian Meditation (2004) and Saurian Exorcisms (2009), reflected Middle Eastern inspired music in a “cinematic, ambient and mostly instrumental format”. In addition to releasing new Saurian music, Napalm Records will reissue both Saurian Meditation and Saurian Exorcisms, with more details to follow.
Karl Sanders says about the signing:
“I am just thrilled to death that we have signed up with Napalm Records for the new KARL SANDERS Saurian album. I am really happy that we have found such a good home for both NILE and my Saurian side project, as they are a great company with some sincere people. I am looking forward in earnest to working together with everyone at Napalm to bring fans the new Saurian music, as well as re-releasing the first two Saurian records.”
