What Should Not Be Unearthed (Nuclear Blast)

Metallurgy

South Carolina's Nile never tires of Egyptology. Eighth hieroglyph What Should Not Be Unearthed keeps pharaoh tombs safe from grave robbers via Karl Sanders indulging his archaeological digs with brick-chewing vocals and riff dissonance. Despite the occasional Sumerian interlude, songs like "In the Name of Amun" and "Negating the Abominable Coils of Apep" fry meat and bake potatoes as tastefully as any old-school death metal alive.
