RIVERS OF NIHIL Launch Guitar Play-Through For ‘Reign of Dreams’


Starting this Thursday (October 20th), RIVERS OF NIHIL will head back out on the road, joining Obscura, REVOCATION, and Beyond Creation for a must-see tour across Europe. In anticipation of this trek, the band has launched a guitar play-through for “Reign of Dreams“, taken from their latest album, “Monarchy“. You can watch RIVERS OF NIHIL‘s Jon Topore and Brody Uttley demo the track through the “Revv Generator 120” below.

RIVERS OF NIHIL will be touring in support of 2015’s “Monarchy“, which was hailed as “the gold standard for extreme, technical, progressive, and passionate death metal right now” (HeavyBlogIsHeavy.com). “Monarchy” continues the seasonal concept that began with spring on RIVERS OF NIHIL‘s debut, The Conscious Seed of Light” – this time, welcoming the oppressive summer heat. Adam Biggs, who also serves as the band’s primary lyricist, explains: “The Earth has been transformed into a vast desert wasteland, where after aeons of lifelessness, new beings begin to take shape and begin their journey as shepherds of the planet. But after a while, a class system forms from a sun-worshiping religious dictatorship, and these beings start to lose their way. Only the guidance of an ancient earthly force can help them save themselves as well the planet.
