RIVERS OF NIHIL Streaming New Track “Monarchy”

Rivers of Nihil have premiered the title track from their forthcoming full-length, Monarchy, over at No Clean Singing. “Monarchy” begins with ominous, progressive guitar work before launching into an aggressive array of groove-laden, bellowing death metal capable of leveling entire cities. Bassist Adam Biggs comments on the new track:

“The whole album is a concept piece, lyrically. It follows the struggles of a new breed of intelligent life on a planet earth that is now essentially a vast, oceanless desert. These beings, as humans did long before them, create a ruling class that dominates the masses through religious fear. By the time we reach the title track, this “Monarchy” is in full swing. Musically, the track expresses this dominant oppression via an exploration of our heavy, groove-oriented side. This one is a bruiser, but it doesn’t abandon our taste for blast beats, fierce riffs, lead work and an overall sense of shred.”

Stream the track at this location.

Monarchy will be released on August 21 via Metal Blade Records.
