Rivers of Nihil have added to their already busy Fall touring schedule. In October, fans will be able to see Rivers of Nihil touring with Beneath the Massacre, Rings of Saturn, and Legion throughout the east coast. Confirmed dates can be seen below, as well as at facebook.com/riversofnihil.
“The Conscious Seed of Light,” will be released on October 15th in North America and October 11th/14th in Europe/UK via Metal Blade Records. The album was recorded in March of 2013 at Mana Recording Studios in Florida with famed metal producer/musician Erik Rutan. Guitarist Brody Uttley said, “Working with Erik was a true privilege. Coming from the DIY circuit and immediately recording with one of greatest death metal producers of all time pushed us all more than we ever could have expected, both as musicians and as people. We have grown tremendously as a band in all aspects because of our experience with Erik.”
Born from the ruins of their decaying hometown of Reading, Pennsylvania, Rivers of Nihil are on a relentless path of taking their music to the next level. Formed in 2009 the modern progressive death metal quintet’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.
