Let’s just get this out the way now: Nile. However good our intentions, it’s hard to not think of that band when talking about “death metal” and “Egypt”, so let’s get it out the way now. With that reference made, we can get on to talk about what actually matters for this review: the fact that Scarab’s latest record, Martyrs of the Storm, absolutely slays. Put this on for someone without telling them who it is, and Martyrs of the Storm could easily be mistaken for a prime-era Morbid Angel or later-day Behemoth album.
