Nile's music is written mostly by founding member and vocalist / guitarist Karl Sanders. It combines traditional and technical death metal with elements of Middle Eastern music, incorporating traditional Egyptian instruments in some songs. Nile's music is also characterized by its extreme complexity and speed – for which the band has received acknowledgment from many music fans and journalists – and its extremely 'heavy' riffing, due to Nile's guitar and bass tunings.
