Reading, Pennsylvania's death metal quintet Rivers of Nihil recently entered Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg with Erik Rutan to record the band's Metal Blade Records debut, which is due out before the end of 2013.
Drummer Ron Nelson checked in after completing tracking the drums and here's what he had to say:
"Tracking went awesome; we were right on schedule with how we planned it out and everything went smoothly. Erik and I had very similar visions in the way we wanted the drums to sound and he delivered. Although this is our first full-length release, they're going to be the most natural drums Rivers has had to date and we couldn't be happier with how they sound."
Stay tuned as more studio info is released. Tour dates for the summer are in the works so stay tuned for dates and more studio updates. More...
Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of Rivers of Nihil. The record label comments:
"The modern progressive death metal quintet, who formed in 2009, was born from the ruins of their decaying hometown of Reading, Pennsylvania and are on a relentless path of taking their music to the next level. Rivers of Nihil's music is as dark and heavy as the coal and iron their home city was built upon, taking influences from some of death metal's heaviest, most abrasive hitters: Morbid Angel, Gojira, Spawn of Possession and Decapitated, to name a few."
The band also stated, "We're super stoked to be a part of the Metal Blade family! Being on a such a strong label with some of our favorite bands is truly an honor and we look forward to the future with Metal Blade."
