Rivers of Nihil launches behind-the-scenes clip for latest video, “A Home”

– March 21st, 2018 –

Last week, Rivers of Nihil released their third full-length, Where Owls Know My Name, via Metal Blade Records, along with a video for the album track, “A Home”. Guitarist Jonathan Topore filmed a behind-the-scenes documentary of the video shoot for “A Home,” which can be seen now at: youtube.com/watch?v=dlZe-aXc4Ck

To watch “A Home” [directed by David Brodsky (www.davidsbrodsky.com)] and purchase Where Owls Know My Name, please visit: metalblade.com/riversofnihil

Where Owls Know My Name reunites Rivers of Nihil with Monarchy producer Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds of Life) and Dan Seagrave, the storied artist behind such celebrated album covers as Entombed‘s Left Hand Path and Suffocation‘s Effigy of the Forgotten. The result is the Reading, PA quintet’s most visceral, accomplished, and satisfying offering to-date.

Guitarist Brody Uttley comments:
“This record is Rivers of Nihil being exactly who we want to be. Many bands get stuck in a comfortable routine of releasing the same album over and over again. Constantly relying on the same familiar formula may work for some bands, but it does not work for us. Music is art, and art is ever-changing. Without change, there is no progress. Without progress, the very fire that powers art and expression will die. This record is the sound of where we come from, where we are, and where we are going.”

Adds bassist/vocalist Adam Biggs:
“This time around, the lyrics feel a little more personal than on previous albums. The story picks up several millennia after the events of ‘Monarchy‘, where one person still remains alive, chosen by the planet to be the sole intelligent witness of its ultimate fate. But ‘Where Owls Know My Name‘ is less about overarching narrative than our previous albums. The scenario is just a backdrop for the more emotional material we tried to put forth this time around. Ultimately, this is an album about loss, getting older, and reaching a point where death becomes a much more present part of your life.”

Where Owls Know My Name reunites Rivers of Nihil with Monarchy producer Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds of Life) and Dan Seagrave, the storied artist behind such celebrated album covers as Entombed‘s Left Hand Path and Suffocation‘s Effigy of the Forgotten. The result is the Reading, PA quintet’s most visceral, accomplished, and satisfying offering to-date.

Guitarist Brody Uttley comments:
“This record is Rivers of Nihil being exactly who we want to be. Many bands get stuck in a comfortable routine of releasing the same album over and over again. Constantly relying on the same familiar formula may work for some bands, but it does not work for us. Music is art, and art is ever-changing. Without change, there is no progress. Without progress, the very fire that powers art and expression will die. This record is the sound of where we come from, where we are, and where we are going.”

Adds bassist/vocalist Adam Biggs:
“This time around, the lyrics feel a little more personal than on previous albums. The story picks up several millennia after the events of ‘Monarchy‘, where one person still remains alive, chosen by the planet to be the sole intelligent witness of its ultimate fate. But ‘Where Owls Know My Name‘ is less about overarching narrative than our previous albums. The scenario is just a backdrop for the more emotional material we tried to put forth this time around. Ultimately, this is an album about loss, getting older, and reaching a point where death becomes a much more present part of your life.”

05/04 Koln, GER – Gebaude 9
05/05 Paris, FRA – Petit Bain
05/05 Birmingham, UK – The Flapper

05/15 Wiesbaden, GER – Schlachthof
05/16 Dresden, GER – Beatpol
05/17 Hamburg, GER – Hafenklang
05/18 Berlin, GER – Pelagic Festival (no Cloakroom)

The run marks a return for Caspian after a hiatus, they commented of that:

“Thank you for hanging tight over the last year as we took some time away from the machine to recalibrate our bearings and step outside the bubble for a minute. Plowing through this for as many years as we have non-stop (and it’s been exactly that) will do all kinds of things to a band, as I’m sure you can well imagine.

We decided it would be a good idea to wade back into the water and slowly get things back online by heading to Europe this May for a string of headline shows and some festival appearances. We’ve missed playing shows a lot and we want to get back up there. Joining us will be the truly amazing Cloakroom and we are thrilled they’ve decided to come along. Hit the events section for tickets and information.

We don’t have an official announcement regarding a new album incoming, have just slowly began writing it, and may or may not debut new material on this tour. We’ll see how the next few months treat us up here in the cold white North, but what we do play will be inspired by a lot of what has happened in the last year and we plan on bringing the heat the best we can per usual, maybe even a little extra fire. There aren’t any current plans to do any shows beyond this at the moment, but you know those will happen when the time feels right and we’ll be sure to let you know. The story is not over and there are chapters not yet written.

On a side note, the positive feedback we’ve received from you guys over the last year, even during a period of near total dormancy, has really helped keep the ship afloat. It seems the last few records are still communicating to people with repeat encounters and that’s enough to keep us charting a course forward. Thanks and see you this May.

All the best,
CASPIAN“

Slayer’s Touring Partners Speak About Upcoming North American Shows

Members of Lamb Of God, Behemoth, Testament and Anthrax have spoken about their upcoming tour of North America with Slayer, which is part of the headliner’s, “End Of Days” farewell tour. Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe had this to say:

“If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it’s an incredible honor. Slayer gave Lamb Of God our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt – I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour – well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We’ll see you on the road…”

Testament vocalist Chuck Billy added: “Sharing the stage with Slayer once again is going to be an honor, and to be a part of the final tour is going to be a special privilege for us. Slayer has influenced so many aggressive bands in their career. This tour will be an epic time for all who attend. Do yourself a favor and clear your calendars when this show comes to town. This will be your last chance to see a tour like this. Get ready North America for the devastation.”

Behemoth frontman Nergal stated: “Well, well, well… the dream comes true AGAIN it seems. Behemoth will be teaming up with mighty Slayer again for another extensive North American run later this year! Nothing short of epic if you ask me! I cannot wait to confront American legions again before we unleash the new record. One of the biggest metal tours this year: Testament, Behemoth, Anthrax, Lamb Of God and Slayer. Can you miss it out? FUCK NO!”

Anthrax bassist Frankie Bellow also commented on the tour, saying: “It’s truly an honor to be on Slayer’s final tour. Anthrax and Slayer have toured together for decades, we are family, band and crew, so we want to help give Slayer the best send-off possible, and to have one last blast with our friends. But you know, at the end of the day, Slayer will never die.”
