Biography

Delve into the limitless minds of the psychological tsunami RIVERS OF NIHIL.

Hailing from Reading, Pennsylvania, these quick thinkers pummel out blisteringly complicated tracks provoking both infinite thought and curiosity about the human psyche and the overhanging cosmos of the spec of dirt we call earth.

Forward thinking and unbound to specific genres, RIVERS OF NIHIL have produced the EP Hierarchy for the enlightenment of the unaware, and for the furthering of knowledge for those already receptive of the perverse anomaly called humanity.

Written in coherence with our race's sustained dark side, Hierarchy perpetrates circumstances such as people making money off of death, artificial beings destroying humanity, and the depths of the darkest human psyche. This gripping EP submerses the listener into an uncontrollable storm of thought, emotion, and strong lyrical content.

Moving forward with an unbridled amount of achievement, RIVERS OF NIHIL are planning a lengthy tour across the United States East Coast for 2010.

Lyrics

Chambers of Civility

Written By: Adam Biggs

We have become addicted to nothing.
System Interface.
With thy organic mind. altruistic living is a waste of time.
Materialism dominates our kind.
We are slaves in the new world, just part of a design.
Just consumers. Not immune to the snakes that will sell our souls.
To machines, We belong.
Eat the shit they give us because we can't live without it.
We are so numb because wanted it this way.
We are so numb because we like it like this.
Elective euthanasia societal anesthesia
Sew my eyes shut, I won't watch this anymore,
Sew my mouth shut, I won't eat this shit you give to me.
Living in civil chambers we have separatist behaviors.
Cultivating an unchanging landscape.
Meaningless distractions.
Concoction made to make us numb.
Side effects include disillusion.
Paranoia and lack of trust.
Mechanical walls built to hold us in.
Invisible lines are drawn.
Sew my eyes shut.
Refusing to be subjective to such diluted imagery.
The pure soul of immunity, Resisting through the chambers of civility.
Elective euthanasia societal anesthesia
Sew my eyes shut, I won't watch this anymore,
Sew my mouth shut, I won't eat this shit // you give to me.

Human Adaptation

Written By: Rivers of Nihil

Alternating Personality.
Disguising all that is natural
while losing yourself under all that owns you.
A glitch for those that fear reality.
The influential impact of centuries to come
weighting out human instinct while sculpting character.
Becoming what these products shape you to.
Stuck living a life that doesn't hold real value.
Traded individuality to mimic some trend.
If we were to die and reborn, we'd do it again.
Disgraceful human race.
One day unfamiliar will hold the look of all these faces.
An unrecognizable fool.
Narrowing down the path evolution takes us.
Are we clones programed to make these mistakes?
Our path of fate holds no originality.
Following and falling countless steps behind the lead.
Traded individuality to mimic some trend.
If we were to die and reborn, we'd do it again.
