“Where Owls Know My Name” will be out on March 16 via Metal Blade Records.
Pennsylvania-based Tech Death Rivers Of Nihil have announced their new album entitled “Where Owls Know My Name”. You can check out the brand new single called “The Silent Life” below.
The song features an unexpected saxophone section that sounds amazing.
“Where Owls Know My Name” was produced by Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds of Life) and features artwork from the legendary Dan Seagrave who is known for his work with bands such as Entombed, Suffocation, among others. This will also be the band’s first album featuring drummer Jared Klien (ex-The Kennedy Veil).
Guitarist Brody Uttley commented about the album:
“This record is Rivers of Nihil being exactly who we want to be. Many bands get stuck in a comfortable routine of releasing the same album over and over again. Constantly relying on the same familiar formula may work for some bands, but it does not work for us. Music is art, and art is ever-changing. Without change, there is no progress. Without progress, the very fire that powers art and expression will die. This record is the sound of where we come from, where we are, and where we are going.”
Vocalist and bassist Adam Biggs added:
“This time around, the lyrics feel a little more personal than on previous albums. The story picks up several millennia after the events of “Monarchy”, where one person still remains alive, chosen by the planet to be the sole intelligent witness of its ultimate fate. But “Where Owls Know My Name” is less about overarching narrative than our previous albums. The scenario is just a backdrop for the more emotional material we tried to put forth this time around. Ultimately, this is an album about loss, getting older, and reaching a point where death becomes a much more present part of your life.”
