Earlier this year, Rivers of Nihil released a video for “Birth of the Omnisavior,” a sleek and dark video that captures visually what this band does so well sonically: they play emboldened, deftly-executed death metal at a level far beyond their years. Watch “Birth of the Omnisavior” from their album “The Conscious Seed of Light” now at metalblade.com/riversofnihil.

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. 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.Rivers of Nihil‘s lineup is rounded out by guitarists Brody Uttley and Jon Kunz, vocalist Jake Dieffenbach, and drummer Alan Balamut.
