Announce North American Tour Dates With Hate Eternal

‘Monarchy’ is not only their darkest record to date, but their most dynamic, atmospheric and powerful” – 9/10 Outburn Magazine

‘Monarchy’ is the gold standard for extreme, technical, progressive, and passionate death metal right now, and it probably won’t change any time soon.” – Heavy Blog is Heavy

Last Friday, RIVERS OF NIHIL released their sophomore album “Monarchy” via Metal Blade Records. Today the album entered the following Billboard Charts:

#17 Heatseeker
#32 Hard Music
#56 Independent

Guitarist Brody Uttley on the success of the new album, “We are incredibly pleased with the positive response that Monarchy has received. In the digital age of music it has become harder and harder to get people to actually buy music and support their favorite bands. We are a lucky group of guys to have such an amazing and supportive fanbase. See you all very soon!

In support of “Monarchy” the band will hit the road this fall alongside Hate Eternal, Misery Index and Beyond Creation. The tour starts October 27th in Boston, MA.

Fans can purchase the album, which No Clean Singing calls “…a pinnacle of the band’s union of atmospheric and progressive aims” on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Bandcamp or directly from Metal Blade Records. European fans can order their copy HERE.

The album can be streamed via Apple Music and Spotify.

The band’s video for the song “Sand Baptism” which was directed by David Brodsky (GWAR, Whitechapel, Black Dahila Murder) can be viewed HERE.

The seasonal concept that began with spring on “The Conscious Seed of Light” continues, of course, with “Monarchy“, as it welcomes the oppressive heat of summer. The story takes place millions of years after the events in “The Conscious Seed of Light“. 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.
