River of Nihil - "Monarchy"

How evil does that opener sound on the kickoff of Monarchy? Pretty evil is right in case you thought you were guessing. Once this album is unleashed all hell has broken loose until the final moments of "Suntoldfizzle out. It's an absolute blast of refreshing death metal from start to finish, and if you've missed The Faceless in their hiatus and turbulent off seasons, Rivers of Nihil attempt to slaughter in their wake. With spectacular musicianship ala Spawn of Possession, and dare I say it - Suffocation and Necrophagist fame, RON are hardly a contender on their latest outing. Highly recommended for the non-negotiating metal head or to those who thought that they knew better and haven't yet heard this latest opus. Not to be overlooked.
