Aborted Reveals New Album Title, Release Date And Announces European Tour With Cryptopsy

Belgian deathgrind veterans Aborted has posted a message online revealing the details of their forthcoming new studio album. A post on their official Facebook account reads:

“We have some exciting news to share with you all – as many of you know, we entered the studio to start the recording of our new studio album which will be called “TerrorVision”. Expect nothing less than brutal death metal on the highest level, enriched by the dark melodic twist of our latest EP, “Bathos”. “TerrorVision” is set to be released on September 21, 2018 via Century Media Records. Aborted will return to the death metal clubs of Europe in early November, joined by Cryptopsy, Benighted and Cytotoxin. Do not miss the brutal death metal package in autumn!

Aborted’s vocalist Sven De Caluwe comments on the album and tour:

“So here we are, at it again. We just spent a little over two weeks recording the follow up to Retrogore, entitled TerrorVision at the mighty Kohlekeller Studios in Germany. Tracking is coming to its end, and it’s been a record we poured a ton of work in over the last year or so. This is actually the first record we were able to do full pre-productions for and had Kohle involved in with since the beginning, and let me tell you, the result is there. We all feel very proud and strongly about how this beast is shaping. Get ready for the most ambitious, varied and brutal Aborted record so far. Kohle has been pushing us beyond the limit of what we have ever done and stuff is sounding massive; always a pleasure to have him involved.

“Next to that we can’t be more excited to announce the line-up for our Hell Over Europe II tour. Last time we had a killer package; well this time for the release of TerrorVision I think not only do we have one of the best brutal death metal packages we could put together; but it’s also the most awesome company of friends we could dream to share the road with for a month. Get ready to have your bodies annihilated by our friends of Cryptopsy, Benighted and Cytotoxin next to yours truly of course. This is going to be the party you don’t wanna miss out on, we are ecstatic to share the road with our good friends and hang with you all, see you all out there, PREPARE TO GRIND!!!!!!”

Rivers of Nihil challenges The Black Dahlia Murder to a beer pong game, while streaming their new album, ‘Where Owls Know My Name’ (out tomorrow!)

– March 15th, 2018 –

Kicks off North American tour with Dying Fetus, Thy Art Is Murder, Enterprise Earth, Sanction today

Tomorrow (March 16th), Rivers of Nihil will release their third full-length, Where Owls Know My Name, via Metal Blade Records. In support of this new album, the band is hitting the road today with Dying Fetus, Thy Art Is Murder, Enterprise Earth, and Sanction for a North American tour that’s not to be missed (see below for dates).

For a preview of Where Owls Know My Name, fans can watch a video of Rivers of Nihil challenging labelmates The Black Dahlia Murder to a beer pong game – with a part of the album streaming during the clip. Head over to the Metal Sucks Facebook page now for the exclusive: facebook.com

To hear the previous singles – “The Silent Life”, “A Home”, “Where Owls Know My Name” – please visit: metalblade.com/riversofnihil – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–CD
–Swamp green vinyl + download card (limited to 400 copies – USA exclusive)
–Olive green w/ black splatter vinyl + download card (limited to 300 copies – USA exclusive)
–Doublemint inside swamp green vinyl + download card (limited to 300 copies – USA exclusive)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

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.”

Stone is no longer on the upcoming tour, it was never a question from the start.

We are sorry it took so long to update. We have always promoted a safe place for every different kind of person that wants to come to our shows, and have vocally promoted a safe space for women. We DO NOT stand behind these actions, and it will not be tolerated. More news tonight.”
