Rivers of Nihil will be touring in support of their recently released, sophomore album, Monarchy. Hailed as “the gold standard for extreme, technical, progressive, and passionate death metal right now” (HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com), Monarchy continues the seasonal concept that began with spring on Rivers of Nihil’s acclaimed debut, The Conscious Seed of Light – this time, welcoming the oppressive summer heat. Adam Biggs, who also serves as the band’s primary lyricist, explains: “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.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: My background on this entire package is rather limited and I must definitely change that because I am fully aware of the kudos that the bands most recent album is getting. Also it’s high time for me to get myself over to Saint Vitus Bar a little more often since so many great shows are making their stop at that space and nowhere else. What do you readers think of this package? Is it something that you will attend and are excited about? Have you seen these groups before and can line out for the newbies what is in store for them? If so let me know in the comments below as that is why we have them.
