The Blue Nile rises in the headwaters of Lake Tana, NW Ethiopia, a region of heavy summer rains, and is the source of floodwaters that reach Egypt in September; the Blue Nile contributes more than half of all Nile waters throughout the year.
The traditional system of basin irrigation—in which Nile floods were trapped in shallow basins and a cool-season crop of wheat or barley was grown in soaked and silt-replenished soil—has been replaced since the mid-1800s by a system of perennial irrigation and the production of two or three crops a year, including cotton, sugarcane, and peanuts.
James Bruce, the Scottish explorer, identified (1770) Lake Tana as the source of the Blue Nile, and John Speke, the British explorer, is credited with the identification (1861–62) of Lake Victoria and Ripon Falls as the source of the White Nile.

 Nile: Annihilation of the Wicked - PopMatters Music Review
Musically, Nile's style might derive a fair bit from Egyptian and Middle Eastern sounds, but their sound is deeply rooted in classic death metal, in the same vein as the genre's great progenitors, Death and Morbid Angel.
Death metal is one of those musical styles that isn't for everybody, as it can be an acquired taste, but everybody needs a little of everything in their record collections, and if there's one death metal album from 2005 that's definitely worth hearing, it's this one.
Nile's music is masterful, brilliantly brutal art, and Annihilation of the Wicked has exceeded everyone's lofty expectations, and is easily one of the best metal releases of the year.
