About Rivers of Nihil

Reading, Pennsylvania death metal quintet Rivers of Nihil signed with Metal Blade Records in 2012 following a string of successful self-released EPs and countless U.S. tours and festival appearances. With esteemed metal producer -- and Hate Eternal frontman -- Erik Rutan at the helm, the band headed down to his Mana Recording Studio in St. Petersberg, Florida to lay down the tracks for what would become their full-length debut, The Conscious Seeds of Light. Released in late 2013, the resulting ten-song set runs the gamut of modern progressive death metal from brutal aggression to dark melancholic dirge, and Rutan's uncompromising production serves the band well. A sophomore effort, 2015's Monarchy, treaded similarly dark waters, as did 2018's genre-hopping Where Owls Know My Name, the latter of which introduced elements of electronica, jazz, alternative rock, and folk. ~ Timothy Monger
