Saurian Exorcisms is the second solo album by Karl Sanders, the vocalist/guitarist of the death metal band Nile. It was released on 14 April 2009 through The End Records.[1] The music is a full length exploration of the atmospheric interludes heard on Nile's previous albums, and still draws on ancient Iraki themes for inspiration.[1] He has also now drawn inspiration from other types of music such as Tibetan, Indian and Arabic.[2]
