Nihilate Opening for Devin Townsend

Local metal band Nihilate will be giving away two songs ahead of opening slot October 29. Nihilate have been added to the opening slot for the Devin Townsend Project show at the Commodore Ballroom October 29. The band is excited and honored to be given this slot as they are long time fans of Devin Townsend’s many musical endeavors.

Tickets for the show can be found online here or at Scrape Records at 323 East Broadway, Vancouver.

For the week leading up to the show, the band is offering free downloads of 2 songs from their new album “Synthetic Order.” They can be downloaded from the band’s site here

These songs will only be available for the first 200 people or until Saturday October 29.

With the release of their first LP, Synthetic Order, Nihilate plans to overcome the current trends and divisions within the metal community and restore depth and integrity in songwriting and production. With the help of Garth Richardson (Rage Against the Machine, Mudvayne, Spineshank, Gallows), Scott Ternan (Fear Factory) and other staff and students at the Nimbus School of Recording Arts, Nihilate have created a hard hitting, ear punishing 40-minute war of art. From the deceptively acoustic driven intro Clearance, or the trial of endurance that is Mourn of Hate, to the thrash anthem title track Synthetic Order, this project will prove Nihilate stands above the rest.

In the spring of 2010, Nihilate released the self-produced E.P. Resistance, through From Nothing Records. It was recorded and mixed at the Metal Ranch in Delta, B.C. by Tom Peterson (Mechanism, Cyanotic). Since forming in 2005, Nihilate has built a reputation as an intense live act, continuously working to strengthen and develop the overall live experience.

With the completion of Synthetic Order, Nihilate is now working towards international distribution and tour support to bring their defiant sound to a wider audience.
