Rivers Of Nihil  


Hailing from Pennsylvania, Rivers Of Nihil formed in 2009 and went the indie route for a time, releasing two EPs before signing to the everpresent Metal Blade label. They've released two albums since that signing, and their 2015 effort Monarchy shows the band squarely in the progressive/technical death metal camp, with harsh (and a bit one-dimensional) vocals overlaid some impressive riffing. Tech death bands sometimes get lost in their own complexity, but these guys rein it in enough while still exercising their chops.
