Face, Prepare to be F*cked Off: Rivers of Nihil Announce Release Date for Debut Album
For the first time in three years, my pick for Album That Will Fuck Your Face Off [Now with correct link! -Ed.] this year will actually fuck your face in the year it’s supposed to fuck your face off: Pennsylvania’s Rivers of Nihil and Metal Blade have announced an October 15 release date for the band’s Erik Rutan-produced debut album, The Conscious Seed of Light. Although they still haven’t released an initial single, they have unveiled the album art, by the revered Dan Seagrave (Suffocation, Morbid Angel, Entombed, Decrepit Birth, etc.). Unsurprisingly, it’s pretty goddamn sweet. Check it out:
I cannot fucking WAIT for this album. While we wait impatiently for October 15, the band is currently fucking faces off live on tour with Wretched, Abiotic, and Allegaeon. Get dates here. In October, they’ll also play support on Dying Fetus’ MetalSucks-sponsored trek, along with Exhumed, Devourment, and, once again, Abiotic. Dates for that tour are available here.
