Karl Sanders (born June 5, 1964) is an American musician, most widely known as the founding member of the American Egyptian-themed band Nile.

  • Users are not tagging similar artists, it's based on their libraries in which case is the reason why many of the bands are more related to Nile than Karl Sanders. I suggest creating a group (if there isn't one already) and then list the connected artists or similar. Alternately you can list the similar artists in a shoutbox message and maybe more users will pick up on it.
  • I do feel people should stop tagging metal bands as "similar artists". Karl is a metal musician in his main band, true, but his solo stuff isn't metal at all and similar artists should actually be similar to the music of the project, not what other projects the musician may be involved in. People who put Daemonia Nymphe as a similar artist have a much more admirable idea.
  • I despise Nile but this solo project is exquisite.
  • Nile is awesome and Karl Sanders is awesome too.
  • Saurian Exorcisms*
  • Nile is awful but Saurian Meditation is quite cool. [2] He's actually great when he isn't trying too hard to be "brutal." Shame too since Nile has some interesting ideas, but I prefer Kartikeya anyday.
