Rivers of Nihil, hailing from Reading, Pennsylvania, have made one seriously dark and heavy album. The band’s debut full-length album, the modern progressive piece of death metal The Conscious Seed of Light, hits the streets on October 15, 2013 (October 11th/14th, Europe/UK), but until then you can indulge in the bloody violence of “Soil & Seed,” the second track released from the album. The new track is streaming at Stereokiller.com.

Rivers of Nihil bassist Adam Briggs said the following about the new track:

“‘Soil & Seed’ was one of the first songs we wrote for the record and it’s been a staple of our live set ever since. We wrote this one for two reasons: to outline the interconnectedness of the Earth and all living creatures, and to get people to head bang and stomp around like fucking maniacs. Enjoy!”

After years of hard touring to promote their two self-released EPs, Hierarchy (2010) and Temporality Unbound (2011), Rivers of Nihil were signed to Metal Blade and are now about to embark on an extensive fall tour throughout the East Coast and parts of the Midwest with with Beneath the Massacre, Rings of Saturn, and Legion (full list of dates are below).

The Conscious Seed of Light was recorded in March of 2013, at Mana Recording Studios in Florida with famed metal producer/musician Erik Rutan. Guitarist Brody Uttley has commented on working with Erik:

Working with Erik was a true privilege. Coming from the DIY circuit and immediately recording with one of greatest death metal producers of all time pushed us all more than we ever could have expected, both as musicians and as people. We have grown tremendously as a band in all aspects because of our experience with Erik.
