Been jamming this band all day
THIS! I agree they are talented but they do in fact lack an identity. Nothing really sets them apart from anyone else. I think what kills it for me is the bland vocals. I really want to like this band but i just cant get into it all the way. Its like when you get ready to blow your load but pull back so you last longer.... but it just keeps happening over and over
Epic necro bumpage.
So I stumbled across this band a few months ago. I think they f-in destroy, just really into their record that came out in '13. Seems like alot has changed since their 1st record came out:
-guitarist Jon Kunz left, replaced by a guy named Jon Topore
-original drummer Ron Nelson left, replaced by Alan Balamut
-I noticed that lead guitarist posts on SSO
-saw on their FB page yesterday that they just started work on their 2nd record. Not going to be engineered by Rutan this time around
If you missed them the first time around check these:
TCSOL is a great album, surprised more people on SSO aren't into them. Really looking forward to the next record
They completely destroy live. I can't wait for the next record either.
Man that DC7X....
(sorry, couldn't resist)
They just finished recording their 2nd album. I loved TCSOL, can't wait to hear this one.
Rivers of Nihil Complete Recording Sophomore Album - MetalSucks
If you follow Brody on Instagram, you know this next one is going to be a ripper. He posted some clips of solo tracking. It was nuts.
Anything beyond Facebook outreaches my social media attention span.
First song "Perpetual Growth Machine", from the new album Monarchy is out! Album is out Aug 21 (this and new Ghost on the same day, may just do me in)!
Put my pre-order in. So stoked for this one. Easily my favorite new band out there.
Gracious. I almost can't handle all this new music coming out this year. It's all gonna f*ck our faces off. We still have yet to hear the new Nile, the rest of this new Rivers of Nihil album, Hate Eternal, Kronos, Obscura, Decrepit Birth I think... I can't recall the last time I've been so damn happy.
I want to pre-order, but not sure where I'll be at when it arrives. Might just go digital.
Wasn't really a huge fan a their first release, i might just need another listen through to fully appreciate it, but this track was sick as hell. if they release another track as good as this ill be pre ordering for sure.
New track has everything i liked about Conscious Seed, and they really improved on the parts I wasn't crazy about. Stoked for this album
Looking forward to this record. TCSOL was pretty great imho. Apparently there are a lot more solos.. which is good. I like Adams vocals.. I hope they incorporate them more and his bass playing is more forward in the mix. Dude is a great player.
TCSOL was like a 7/10 for me- really solid but it dragged and felt repetitive. Every single piece of the new track sounds fresh, clever, and well-arranged. Sounds like they really stepped up their game. If all the other songs are this good it will easily fit onto my year-end top 10 list.
Also, am I the only one who thinks people use that artwork format of an island in the middle of a landscape waaaaaaaaay too much?
No you are not Mike. It's done a lot. The only reason I think it's cool is because I forget that there are hundreds of other bands that use the same picture concept style. When I remember that, it becomes more lame haha.
Anyway, really digging this song. I loved TCSOL, and I look forward to what these guys are gonna put out.
I don't buy cds so I never notice/care.
Song sounds great though, I like when bands actually make the bass audible.
