Rivers Of Nihil - Announce New Album, Streaming New Song

Technical death metallers Rivers Of Nihil have announced the release Monarchy, the band's second full-length and follow-up to 2013's The Conscious Seed of Light, due out August 21st through Metal Blade Records, available for pre-order here. Monarchy features the band's new members, drummer Alan Balamut and guitarist Jon Topore, and artwork by the self-taught and talented artist Dan Seagrave.

Guitarist Brody Uttley comments: "I lost a few close friends. The loss of these people had a profound influence on the creation of the music for this record. I was having strong feelings of rage, sadness, hope, and frustration as a result. The songs turned out heavier, darker, sadder, and more frightening than I had ever hoped that they would. The emotional tension completely falls apart."

Bassist and vocalist Adam Biggs continues: "The Earth has been transformed into a vast desert wasteland, where after aeons of lifelessness, new beings begin to take shape and begin their journey as shepherds of the planet. But after a while, a class system forms from a sun-worshiping religious dictatorship, and these beings start to lose their way. Only the guidance of an ancient earthly force can help them save themselves as well the planet."

Wasn't too impressed until around 2:50. Great track. I picked up their debut ages ago simply because the cover art caught my eye.
