For this week’s Music Video Of The Week, we turn to Metal Blade Records artist and Pennsylvania Death Metal act Rivers Of Nihil and their video for the track Sand Baptism. The track comes off of the band’s upcoming sophomore release Monarchy which sees the band bring their crushing in your face brand of metal to the forefront. When describing the track Rivers Of Nihil say, “Sand Baptism’ is a track where we purposely fused our more traditional death metal sound with the newer elements that we brought to the table on this new album. This track is a well balanced serving of emotion, brutality, technicality, and catchiness. We really wanted to focus on writing SONGS on this record instead of just stringing riffs together. ‘Sand Baptism’ does a great job of showing how we have evolved as a band both in a song writing capacity and also as individual players.” The band is not lying either when they say that because the song has such an amazing groove to it that goes well with their elements of Death Metal. The video itself is a performance based video with some clips of a mystery man getting dressed in all orange which makes you wonder if he is a prisoner or something else, but you won’t find out until the very end. Check out the video below and look out for the album which drops August 21ST and you can pre-order the album here. While you’re at it, like the official Facebook page for Moshpits & Movies here
