    They like referring to their music as 'Ithyphallic metal,' or 'erect penis metal.'
    Karl Sanders is the only member to remain with the group since forming.
    Many assume the band are Egyptian or of Egyptian descent because of their subject matter, though neither is the case.
    They've drawn criticism from many for their lack of speed variation, playing mostly at fast, blinding speed.
    Karl Sanders uses the typical guttural, growling death metal vocal style, making his vocals difficult to understand without lyrics on hand.
    Karl Sanders' name sounds like Colonel Sanders.
    They have a huge interest in Ancient Egyptian history, and chose this as their lyrical focus, rather than the typical /satanic death metal imagery.
    They extensively use exotic instrumentation in their music, which makes their sound unique.
    They explain the inspirations and meanings behind each song in great detail in their album booklets.
    They are critically acclaimed and are seen as a major band in modern death metal.
    They may inspire a lot of metal heads to become interested in Ancient Egyptian history.
