Speaking from a neutral perspective, death metal and its various sub styles are often guilty of one thing: the positing of a conceivably indigestible approach, consisting of blisteringly fast pace and unparalleled aggression. Whilst many take great pleasure in this, RIVERS OF NIHIL continually prove their consummate ability to distance themselves from it by striking a rare balance in their sound. The very get go of Where Owls Know My Name displays no less than a tasteful continuation of this principle, with introductory track Cancer/Moonspeak serving to take a reserved, melodic, and atmospheric stance.
