“Update: Extreme metal god and Pearl artist George Kollias from the band Nile will be doing another 5 drum clinics in Germany! George’s talent and unique drumming technique does not get unnoticed. He brings a whole new vibe to the extreme metal scene. His drumming is drawing rave reviews for its technical approach, precision, speed and musicality. In 2006 he joined the Athens Modern Music School and founded their Extreme Drumming department, which turned out to be a huge success. This led to George quitting his side projects and studio session work to concentrate on Nile, his clinics and a career as drum instructor. The past years he has been booked for drum clinics worldwide, demonstrating his unique approach to drummers everywhere he can… South America, Australia, Finland, Greece, the States, South Africa, already had the possibility to see George do live from really up close and personal what most drummers cannot even do in the studio....”

“..."Those Whom The Gods Detest", the new album from South Carolina-based extreme technical death metallers NILE, sold 3,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 160 on The Billboard 200 chart.

“...In reality, Karl Sanders, Chief Spires and Pete Hammoura’s key objective was to brutalize. With extreme prejudice. That’s how the militant pharaohs of ancient Egypt would’ve done it. Forget the real Tibetan monk choir, human skull drums and thigh bone flutes. The embalmed meat of Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka is in noggin-bashers “Smashing the Antiu,” “Barra Edinazzu,” “Serpent Headed Mask” and the “The Howling of the Jinn.” Eventually, Nile and this draconian debut charmed the toughies and purists. Not through sleight of hand or record label PR witchcraft, but incessant touring and feverish word of mouth. Death metal’s new kings weren’t from New York City or Tampa—they originated from a mid-sized city in the foothills of the Appalachians....”
