Ready to kick off their US tour tomorrow, Wednesday February 17th, with Black Fast and Dark Sermon, RIVERS OF NIHIL has now launched a live video for the track "Monarchy," taken from their new album of the same name. Shot at a Los Angeles show this past November, the video can be viewed at THIS LOCATION.
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," by HeavyBlogIsHeavy, Monarchy continues the seasonal concept that began with Spring on the band'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."
