NILE mastermind and multi-instrumentalist Karl Sanders has announced the release of its third solo chapter, “Saurian Apocalypse”, will be out on July 22 via Napalm Records. The effort comes 13 years after the release of its predecessor, 2009’s “Saurian Exorcisms”, and nearly 20 after 2004’s “Saurian Meditation”. Ahead of the release, Sanders now released  the single for “The Sun Has Set On The Age Of Man”.

Watch “The Sun Has Set On The Age Of Man” below. 

Sanders says about “The Sun Has Set On The Age Of Man”:
The Sun Has Set On The Age Of Man’ is a great choice for people’s first exposure to this album. It’s the opening track of the new ‘Saurian’ record, very cinematic and an eerie mood setter. Much like the score of an opening scene of a sci-fi movie, the song serves as an introduction for the many twisted journeys of the album that follows. It uncannily evokes that feeling we all get right after the sun has gone down and night is upon us, conjuring an awareness of the ancient, evolutionary dread of the unknown dark and its terrors that have been imprinted on the human psyche since early prehistoric man first realized that there were things in the night that would prey upon him. The track is also very special to me as it features two dear longtime friends of mine, original NILE drummer Pete Hammoura on percussion, and legendary guitar shredder Rusty Cooley on guest acoustic solos. Although Rusty certainly is a prolific electric guitar shredder, this track marks his debut on acoustic guitar. Thank you, Pete and Rusty!
