Drummer George Kollias called Vile Nilotic Rites a “special album for all of us since each member contributed on this a lot. I feel it represents the teamwork spirit Nile has right now and that shows on stage as well.”[4] The album was recorded at Serpent Headed Studios in Greenville, South Carolina.[4]

The album was generally well-received by critics and fans alike. Writing for Metal Injection, Austin Weber noted that the most distinct difference about the album from the band’s other albums is the “influx of what you might call more “traditional” tech-death lead-work taking a larger role here beyond their patented frenetic riff style”.[1]

All lyrics are written by Karl Sanders.
