George Kollias (Nile), the drum machine released a new explosive track titled Shall Rise/ Shall Be Dead. It’s a single from his upcoming  solo album debut titled Invictus, which will be released by Season Of Mist Records on May 18. The track is powerful, destructive and showcases the insane power of George Kollias in terms of playing various instruments. The song is very constructive and sounds extremely brutal with every elements being blended so perfectly in it.




He also stated his view on his new track: “Shall Rise/Shall Be Dead is a fast song at the 260bpm range. It is not to easy, but a lot of fun to play and one of my favourites from my album. I really like that tempo range, which I always thought fits my drumming style well, but I also love the aggression that comes out of this song. It is not just the drumming that does it, but the riffs… the vocals…. or all as one. The percussion is really important for ‘Shall Rise’ and the rest of album as well. I spent plenty of time to find exactly what fits each composition. For this song, I went with big war drums to make it as epic as possible! I am very happy how this song turned out exactly how I envisioned it while writing. Yet having George Emmanuel from Rotting Christ adding a guitar solo made this one of my personal highlights. George nailed it!
