On March 16th, Rivers of Nihil will release their third full-length, Where Owls Know My Name, via Metal Blade Records.
Whereas The Conscious Seed of Light (2013) and Monarchy (2015) were thematically centered around spring and summer, respectively, Where Owls Know My Name represents the fall.
And although that season is usually associated with death, for Rivers of Nihil, the autumn serves as a rebirth.
For a first preview of Where Owls Know My Name, the album track “The Silent Life” can be heard here:
Where Owls Know My Name reunites Rivers of Nihil with Monarchy producer Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds of Life) and Dan Seagrave, the storied artist behind such celebrated album covers as Entombed‘s Left Hand Path and Suffocation‘s Effigy of the Forgotten. The result is the Reading, PA quintet’s most visceral, accomplished, and satisfying offering to-date.
