Rivers Of Nihil are streaming the title track to their forthcoming full-length Monarchy. Bassist Adam Biggs says of the album:
“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.”
The record is slated to hit stores on August 21st through Metal Blade. Pre-orders can be purchased at this location.
