Rivers of Nihil release new single titled “Focus”

PA proggy tech-death metal bunch Rivers of Nihil have unleashed their new single titled “Focus,” which you can check out below in official music video form (directed by David Brodsky). The tune appears on the band’s upcoming full-length offering dubbed ‘The Work,’ which releases through Metal Blade Records on September 24, 2021 (pre-order).

Lead guitarist and keyboardist Brody Uttley comments, “For the ‘Focus’ video, we once again recruited Mr. David Brodsky, Allie Woest and the team at MyGoodEye. This video tells the story of an individual in a fractured state of mind confronting the darkest parts of his inner self and battling with a physical manifestation of his deepest fears and concerns; the worst parts of himself. This manifestation represents the presence in all of our heads that tries to pull us down into the throes of self-destructive behavior and patterns of thinking.

Brody adds, “The creature that he is interacting with becomes more apparent as the video progresses (with the main character slipping deeper into psychosis) until the end when he loses his battle and is plunged down into the blackness once and for all; existing permanently in the prison that his delusions have constructed for him…Perhaps finally at peace, or just as likely: never again at peace. See you guys on tour next month with The Black Dahlia Murder.”
