RIVERS OF NIHIL Release Guitar Playthrough Video For ‘Reign Of Dreams’ Track
October 17th, 2016

Reading, Pennsylvania-based death metal group Rivers Of Nihil have released a guitar playthrough video for the track ‘Reign Of Dreams’, which can be viewed below.

Rivers Of Nihil issued second full-length studio album Monarchy on August 21st, 2015 through Metal Blade Records.

The outing was cut at Atrium Audio in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland.

Guitarist Brody Uttley cited recent personal hardships as a major factor in the creative process for Monarchy: “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 track listing is as follows;

01. ‘Heirless’
02. ‘Perpetual Growth Machine’
03. ‘Reign Of Dreams’
04. ‘Sand Baptism’
05. ‘Ancestral, I’
06. ‘Dehydrate’
07. ‘Monarchy’
08. ‘Terrestria II: Thrive’
09. ‘Circles In The Sky’
10. ‘Suntold’

Rivers Of Nihil’s recording line-up was as follows;

Jake Dieffenbach (vocals)
Brody Uttley (lead Guitar)
Jon Topore (rhythm guitar)
Adam Biggs (bass)
Alan Balamut (drums)

In its first week of release, Monarchy charted on the following Billboard charts; Heatseeker (#17), Hard Music Albums (#32), and Independent Albums (#56).

A music video was filmed for the song ‘Sand Baptism’ and a live video was released for the title track. Both clips can be viewed below. In addition, Rivers Of Nihil recorded a Toontrack version of the composition ‘Ancestral, I’.

Debut studio record The Conscious Seed Of Light was released in October 2013.
