Emerging in the mid-'90s with an unexpected fusion of technical death metal and mystical Middle Eastern melodies, Nile has been an icon in the metal scene for longer than most osu! players have been alive. Their self-proclaimed "ithyphallic metal" takes influence from sources like ancient Egypt and H.P. Lovecraft, leading to an intense sound beyond comparison.

Nile may not be the average rhythm gamer's cup of tea, but it most definitely fills a niche in the osu! world. Metal fans have engaged with Nile's high-impact sound throughout the last few years, leading to powerful beatmaps at the peak ends of the difficulty scale.
