RIVERS OF NIHIL Finish New Album. Not Finnish, Finish like Complete

Reading, PA’s Rivers of Nihil have officially completed work on their follow up to The Conscious Seed of Light. The band tracked at Atrium Audio (atriumaudiopa.com), just a short drive from their hometown to Lancaster, PA with producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland. Guitarist Brody Uttley detailed the equipment and process in a pair of blogs. Read those both HERE and HERE.

The new album’s details will be released within the coming weeks and is tentatively scheduled for a late summer release worldwide on Metal Blade Records. Stay tuned for music, art, tour dates, and more.

Rivers of Nihil‘s debut album, The Conscious Seed of Light, was recorded in March of 2013 at Mana Recording Studios in Florida with famed metal producer/musician Erik Rutan. While The Conscious Seed of Light is not necessarily a concept album traditionally speaking, Rivers of Nihil began their project with the idea that they would release four separate albums tied together with one common theme: each reflecting a particular season of a year.

Bassist Adam Biggs elaborates;

The Conscious Seed of Light is intended to be representative of spring and explores various themes concerning new beginnings, growth, and an attachment to the natural world in a post-human Earth. Unlike some concept records however, we wanted to allow each song to work on its own terms. Rather than have the songs rely on each other to move a specific story structure forward; they work within their own separate narratives, but ultimately serve the album’s broader concept.

Rivers of Nihil‘s lineup is rounded out by guitarists Brody Uttley, vocalist Jake Dieffenbach, and drummer Alan Balamut.

Swedish Death Metallers, GUTTER INSTINCT Unleash EP Deets

PROSTHETIC RECORDS
Swedish death metal quintet GUTTER INSTINCT will release their debut EP, the four-track “The Insurrection,” on May 19 (North America), May 18 (UK/EU) and May 22 (DE).
Recorded at Helsingborg’s Studio Mangelrum with Kristofer Orstadius, the band drew inspiration from newer bands such as Teitanblood, Bölzer, Grave Miasma, Black Witchery and Portal to expand their distinct grinding tone with dark, haunting blackened smatterings. Further details on the new EP will be released in the coming weeks, including the worldwide premiere of the new track “The Invisble Hand” on April 14. For now, listen to a teaser of what’s to come in the below video clip or via YouTube HERE.
GUTTER INSTINCT was founded in 2012 by Oscar Persson (guitars), Hannes Hellman (guitars) and Thomas Ernemyr (vocals) in Helsingborg, Sweden. With an aim to unleash music with no compromise or remorse, the band in 2013 recorded and self-released their first demo tape, “Obedience,” which focused on themes of oppression, anti-religion and anti-establishment. Receiving acclaim from Swedish press, the band went through a series of lineup changes before finalizing drummer Ola Håkansson and bassist Simon Isaksson. The group was quickly spotted by Prosthetic Records, who picked them up for an international, multi-album deal.

Get to know SECRETS OF THE SKY

Dark, brooding, pure, eclectic, Pathway features Garett Gazay fluctuating between monstrous growls and clean, soothing vocal cascades, all the while complimenting the twisted compositions of guitarists Andrew Green and Clayton Bartholomew. Bassist Ryan Healy and drummer Lance Lea round out the lineup, their rhythms and distinctive voices adding further depth to the collective’s meticulous, blackened soundscrapes. Sonically, SECRETS OF THE SKY aimed for a massive, clean, and organic sounding production. Much time was invested in obtaining huge drum sounds and the focus was on single performance takes throughout the process. The result is an ambitious foray into conceptual storytelling, coupled with emotional music full of peaks and valleys. This is a metal record, to be sure, but more importantly, it sounds like an album of music. This is not a random sequencing of songs or a search for a “hit” single; the tracks all have their place in the story, and the cuts in between actually drive the narrative through sound effects and ambiance. SECRETS OF THE SKY‘s Pathway is an experience to be had, as well as a record to merely be heard.

Pathway is available for pre-order now at metalblade.com/secretsofthesky

Scott Ian, John Tempesta, Joey Vera Project Debut Video, Album Available Now

The day has finally arrived and the debut from MOTOR SISTER, Ride is out now on Metal Blade Records! The album can be ordered at metalblade.com/motorsister.

Coinciding with the album’s release the band is pleased to unveil their new video for the track “A Hole“.

Check out the video directed by Jack Bennett and an exclusive interview with Scott Ian HERE.

MOTOR SISTER is a group of musicians whose collective musical pedigrees speak for themselves.

Mother Superior founder, guitarist, and vocalist Jim Wilson fronts the band, with Anthrax’s Scott Ian on guitar, Pearl Aday on backing vocals, Joey Vera on bass, and John Tempesta on drums.

The group was originally assembled to jam for Scott Ian’s fiftieth birthday party. Thanks to Scott’s wife Pearl Aday, who has been working on her solo career with Mother Superior front man Jim Wilson for years, all it took was a quick phone call and the stage was literally set for Scott’s dream gig.

I wanted to cherry-pick a set list of my favorite Mother Superior songs and get these guys together and have the concert at my house,” Ian says of the event that eventually led to an album.

That album became known as MOTOR SISTER‘s Ride.

The video for “Fork in the Road” which provides a rare glimpse into the recording of this Mother Superior favorite by MOTOR SISTER can be viewed HERE.
