RIVERS OF NIHIL Release Lyric Video For “A Fertile Altar”

Thursday, 21st November 2013

PA-based death metallers RIVERS OF NIHIL have posted the lyric video for “A Fertile Altar,” a song from their new The Conscious Seed of Light album. The video can be viewed below. The album was released on October 15th via Metal Blade Records.

Bassist Adam Biggs elaborates on “A Fertile Altar”: “Musically, this song is a bit of a nod to all of our old-school death metal influences. It’s kind of a more straight-forward head banger with a bridge part perfect for fist pumping and all-round pit brutality. The lyrics were inspired by the disgusting cult actions of Warren Jeffs and his FLDS church in the early 2000’s. Jeffs gained notoriety for controlling the lives of families involved with his sect and preying on their children. However, I always envisioned this song to be spoken from the point of view of a wolf. I really enjoy adding a layer of dualism within these songs.”
