RIVERS OF NIHIL: Debut Album Streaming In Full

Wednesday, 9th October 2013

Pennsylvania death metallers RIVERS OF NIHIL are streaming their debut album The Conscious Seed of Light in full at this location. The album will be released on October 15th via Metal Blade Records.

While The Conscious Seed Of Light is not necessarily a concept album traditionally speaking, Rivers Of Nihil began this project with the idea that they would release four separate albums tied together with one common theme: each reflecting a particular season of a year.

Bassist Adam Biggs elaborates: “The Conscious Seed Of Light is intended to be representative of Spring and explores various themes concerning new beginnings, growth, and an attachment to the natural world in a post-human Earth. Unlike some concept records however, we wanted to allow each song to work on its own terms. Rather than have the songs rely on each other to move a specific story structure forward; they work within their own separate narratives, but ultimately serve the album’s broader concept.”

1. Terrestria I: Thaw

3. Birth of the Omnisavior
4. Soil & Seed
