METAL | Nile 

You've heard the faux Egyptian melody — the one that starts with "da na na na na" — but are you aware of Egyptian-themed death-metal band Nile? This American group is led by singer-guitarist Karl Sanders (ranked by Decibel magazine as one of the best death-metal guitarists of all time) and it is bringing its 20th anniversary show on the road. A Nile concert sounds like a perfect nightcap after a long hard day of rendering unto pharaoh. The quartet is prolific with albums including "Those Whom the Gods Detest," which earned critical kudos en masse, although I'm of an "Annihilation of the Wicked" sort of guy myself. Nile is touring in support of its latest, "At the Gate of Sethu," out on Nuclear Blast. With Order Of The Dead, Sleep Circadia, Within Creation, and Cthuhlu.

Nile plays Friday, March 8, 8 p.m. at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. $12-$16.
