Stopping through their native city of Greenville, SC on tour with Soulfly, we got to chat with our longtime friend Brad Parris, bassist for the world famous death metal band Nile. Though we have known him personally for years, this was the first time we sat down on camera to discuss how he joined such a legendary band, the relationship between the younger members and older, and new music coming soon.
