The band will be touring in support of their third full-length, Where Owls Know My Name, set for release on March 16th – just one day after tour kick off – via Metal Blade Records. Whereas 2013’s The Conscious Seed Of Light and 2015’s Monarchy were thematically centered around spring and summer, respectively, Where Owls Know My Name represents the fall. And although that season is usually associated with death, for RIVERS OF NIHIL, the autumn serves as a rebirth.

Where Owls Know My Name reunites RIVERS OF NIHIL with Monarchy producer Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds Of Life) and Dan Seagrave, the storied artist behind such celebrated album covers as Entombed’s Left Hand Path and Suffocation‘s Effigy Of The Forgotten. Where Owls Know My Name is often just as punishing as its predecessors while assimilating ingredients from musical genres as varied as electronica, jazz, alternative, folk, and the golden age of Shrapnel Records. The resulting music is indescribably progressive, a multifaceted soundscape that goes beyond the wildest dreams of even the group’s most ardent admirers.

Sample Where Owls Know My Name’s “The Silent Life,” “A Home” and the title track at: http://www.metalblade.com/riversofnihil where the record can be preordered in various formats.

RIVERS OF NIHIL – Joins DEATH’S (DTA Tours) Swamp Leper Stomp ’14 North American Trek

Posted in Death Metal, Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 7, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Death DTA Tours - promo flyer - 2014 - North America

This November, Pennsylvania’s RIVERS OF NIHIL will embark on the biggest tour of their career thus far as openers on Death’s (DTA Tours) Swamp Leper Stomp ’14 tour! Additional support will come from Death Metal legends Obituary and Massacre. The trek will commence on November 14th at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California and wraps up on December 7th in Miami, Florida at Grand Central.

Comments guitarist Jon Kunz: “We’re incredibly stoked to a part of this year’s North American Death (DTA Tours)! Death are one of our biggest influences, with the incredible Human album being a constant source of inspiration. Throw in the nasty Tampa savagery of Obituary and Massacre, and you have the best Death Metal tour of the year. Long live Chuck [Schuldiner]. Florida Death Metal is supreme!”

Earlier this year, RIVERS OF NIHIL released a video for Birth Of The Omnisavior, a sleek and dark clip that captures visually what this band does so well sonically: play emboldened, deftly-executed Death Metal at a level far beyond their years. Watch “Birth Of The Omnisavior” from their The Conscious Seed Of Light full length now at THIS LOCATION.

Formed in 2009, the modern progressive Death Metal quintet’s music is as dark and heavy as the coal and iron on which their home city was built upon, taking influences from some of Death Metal’s heaviest, most abrasive hitters like Morbid Angel, Gojira, Spawn of Possession, and Decapitated. RIVERS OF NIHIL‘s debut album, The Conscious Seed Of Light, was recorded in March of 2013 at Mana Recording Studios in Florida with famed Metal producer/musician Erik Rutan. While The Conscious Seed Of Light is not necessarily a concept album traditionally speaking, RIVERS OF NIHIL began their project with the idea that they would release four separate albums tied together with one common theme: each reflecting a particular season of a year.

Bassist Adam Biggs elaborates:The Conscious Seed Of Light is intended to be representative of Spring and explores various themes concerning new beginnings, growth, and an attachment to the natural world in a post-human Earth. Unlike some concept records however, we wanted to allow each song to work on its own terms. Rather than have the songs rely on each other to move a specific story structure forward; they work within their own separate narratives, but ultimately serve the album’s broader concept.”

Metal Blade Records Signs Rivers Of Nihil – Demo From Upcoming Album Streaming Now!

A new demo of track from the Reading, PA Modern Progressive Metal outfit’s upcoming Metal Blade debut now live!

Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of RIVERS OF NIHIL! The Modern Progressive Death Metal quintet, who formed in 2009, was born from the ruins of their decaying hometown of Reading, Pennsylvania and are on a relentless path of taking their music to the next level. RIVERS OF NIHIL‘s music is as dark and heavy as the coal and iron their home city was built upon, taking influences from some of Death Metal’s heaviest, most abrasive hitters: Morbid Angel, Gojira, Spawn of Possession and Decapitated, to name a few.

“We’re super stoked to be a part of the Metal Blade family! Being on a such a strong label with some of our favorite bands is truly an honor and we look forward to the future with Metal Blade.”

Go HERE to listen to the demo version of the new song “Rain Eater” from RIVERS OF NIHIL‘s upcoming Metal Blade Records full-length debut, which will be recorded with Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal) at Mana Recording Studios in Tampa, FL in March of 2013. Stay tuned to the band’s official Facebook page for updates from the studio and release date info.

About the Band:
The members of RIVERS OF NIHIL honed their chops as high schoolers in various bands in the Reading scene, eventually coming together to form RIVERS OF NIHIL in 2009. They recorded their first EPHierarchy that year with Carson Slovak (Century), regularly toured the Northeast and Midwest, and scored local opening gigs for the likes of Decapitated, Decrepit Birth, Suffocation, Dying Fetus, and Misery Index. Two years later they regrouped with producer Len Carmichael to record their next EP Temporality Unbound, which saw the band earn recognition in the national metal scene as well as start to attract the attention of record labels and eventually saw the band signing with Metal Blade Records in late 2012.
