Rivers Of Nihil part ways with guitarist Jonathan Topore

After 8 years in Rivers Of Nihil, guitar player Jon Topore is out.

Reading, Pennsylvania progressive death metal outfit Rivers Of Nihil have announced the departure of guitar player Jonathan Topore, who originally joined the band in 2014.

A statement from the group reads as follows:

"After nearly eight years of working together Rivers of Nihil has decided to part ways with guitarist Jonathan Topore. Like any relationship, sometimes it becomes clear that it is simply time for a change that will be in the best interest of everyone involved. We love Jon and we still consider him to be a great friend to all of us in the band.

"With that being said, we would like to announce that our very old friend Andy Thomas from Black Crown Initiate (and Where Owls Know My Name guest vocal/music video/tambourine fame) will be stepping in for our upcoming headlining tour with Fallujah, Alluvial, and Warforged.

"As a fellow Reading, PA area native Andy has been passively and actively involved with Rivers of Nihil since our inception and there is no other person that we trust more than him to take on this position.

"We look forward to seeing all of you on tour."
