Rivers Of Nihil Release New Song And Video, “Hellbirds”

Must read

Progressive death metal leaders Rivers of Nihil dropped the second song of the band’s career as a quartet, new single “Hellbirds.” Bassist Adam Biggs remains the main vocalist of the band and otherwise things are about what you’d expect: technical riffs, progressive structures, melodic leaders, djenty chugs and breakdowns.

Speaking about the new track, Biggs said:

“‘Hellbirds’ is a song that was actually largely written during the sessions for The Work. We couldn’t find a place for the song on that album, but we knew it would see the light of day sometime because it’s easily one of the heaviest songs we’ve ever written, and we’ve reworked it to display the raw power of the new lineup. The lyrics are written from the perspective of someone you might consider a ‘typical’ person in this day and age: worn out, drug addicted, nihilistic and living in the wake of so many things he can’t control. It’s an anthem for people who hail from dead-end towns like us.”

Rivers of Nihil are supporting Lorna Shore on an upcoming Euro tour, so don’t blow your chance to see the band live.
