One thought on “Rivers Of Nihil: The Work-2021.

  1. Herzebeth, September 29th, 2021

    Rivers of Nihil are known for one thing, being different. They are not really prog Death Metal in the vein of Cynic or Atheist, they are not Tech Death like Alarum or Arsis, of course they are not just plain Death Metal neither…they are something quite different. And some people just hate when things don’t fit in a regular box.

    And of course, when a song lilke “The Void from which no sound escapes” adds not only sweet melodies but even some straight jazz soundscapes, naysayers will hate it, or jat least they ust won’t understand that it’s kind of the whole point of this music, it was never supposed to sound like anything else, it’s meant to not fit in the mold.

    And this album just keeps delivering songs with a bunch of genres colliding, “Maybe one day” is a ballad that could easily be taken out from an Opeth album, “More?” sounds like Djinn, I mean, I could go on and on about all the different tones, schemes and genres in this album, but the real question would be, is it any good?

    Yes it is, I mean, I don’t think it will win greatest metal album of the year, but it surely deserves respect and a focused listen. The songwriting is excellent, the arrangements and production are clean almost to perfection, so yes, I think people should give this one a go, but of course knowing that they won’t be getting old school prog death, it’s not even old school Rivers of Nihil, it’s a more matured band with even greater musical goals.

    Try it, you won’t regret it.
