CANTO: Rivers of Nihil, I Am, Catalyst, and More

Rivers of Nihil


Mondays don’t tend to be particularly interesting, but let’s see what I can find…

  • As part of their extensive North American tour supporting The Contortionist, Rivers of Nihil have also worked in eight headlining dates spread through September and October. They’ll still be performing The Work in full, but with a special encore.
  • If you haven’t familiarized yourself with Texas death/thrash outfit I Am yet, here’s another opportunity to do so. They’re streaming a new video for “Surrender to the Blade” over at Decibel, a track taken from Eternal Steel. That album is set for a September 9th release through MNRK Heavy.
  • Moving to the technical side of death metal, Catalyst are preparing an October release for their second album. A Different Painting For A New World will be out through Non Serviam Records, and I recommend pre-ordering that one here.
  • And we’re rounding things out with some black metal. Skare are releasing their self-titled debut on vinyl through Amor Fati Productions on September 12th. Naturally, we have a track from that album below. Give “Threshold Into Death” a listen right now.

“Ein Bier… bitte.”
