Black Seeds of Vengeance is the second album by American technical death metal band Nile. The album was released on September 5, 2000 through Relapse Records. Black Seeds of Vengeance marks the first album in Nile's discography to feature extensive liner notes in the booklet, written by Karl Sanders to explain the concept and themes behind each song. The band also began undertaking an even more complex musical direction from the last album. This is also the first Nile album to feature the vocal and guitar talents of Dallas Toler-Wade, who has performed on all subsequent Nile albums, as well as the first and only appearance of Derek Roddy on a Nile album.
