Neuweltmusic conducted an interview with NILE mainman Karl Sanders on September 13 at The Button Factory in Dublin, Ireland. You can now watch the chat below.

NILE‘s recent U.S. tour consisted of 28 shows supported by three of the best local bands in every market. NILE played two massive sets with music spanning their prolific, twenty-year career.

NILE‘s seventh full-length album, “At The Gate Of Sethu”, sold 3,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 131 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 2 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

In a recent interview with Alarm magazine, Sanders stated about the songwriting process for “At The Gate Of Sethu”: “Every day, after I’d gotten warmed up with a bunch of technique and stuff, I’d sit with the guitar and the lyrics sheet and just start riffing. I’d just play a gazillion riffs. The next day, I’d sit down and sift through them. I had so many riffs for this fucking album. It was insane. You could make a couple of albums out of all of the riffs that got thrown out.”

He continued: “About halfway through the songwriting process, George Kollias, our drummer, sent me an e-mail. He said, ‘Karl, what the fuck are you doing? All these fucking insane time signatures and tempo changes and fucking weird, fucking odd-time riffs. Dude, please! You’re killing me! Will you please just write something like old NILE? Something simple and classic, because you’re driving me crazy with all of this shit.’ So I thought about it for a while, and I was like, ‘There’s some reality to what he said.'”

Pilot, entrepreneur and IRON MAIDEN frontman Bruce Dickinson will be the keynote speaker at the National Leadership Summit, set to take place October 22 at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland.

National Leadership Summit is described as a one-day intensive forum devoted to exchanging ideas about how senior executives can engage in passionate and creative leadership for innovation, survival and growth — whether in the private, public or non-profit sectors.

Bruce left IRON MAIDEN in 1993 in order to pursue a solo career, his passion for fencing and an interest in becoming a pilot. Bruce rejoined the band in 1999 and has gone on to release four albums; despite this, he hasn’t stopped flying Boeing 757s.

Bruce is very keen to speak on his projects tying it in with business start-up, entrepreneurship and business creativity. In addition, he is willing to talk about the parallels between his music and business careers. He is also able to deliver team building experiences focused around his flight simulator.
