Nihilist + Militia = Nihilitia
Nihilitia is a three-piece from Washington, DC that formed in 2006. The band has a hankering for trash heaps, rhinestones, Dio, emergency candy runs, Powers, Jameson, pirate folklore, and "that's what she/ he said" jokes. The self-described "stonerglam" sound is a result of the Nihilitia's venn diagram of influences. It's kind of like classic rock from the future . . . except not really.
Nihilitia has shared the stage with: the Sword, Stinking Lizaveta, Skeletonwitch, Early Man, Red Fang, Year Long Disaster, Hero Destroyed (Relapse), King Giant, Peelander-Z, Olympia, and more.
Nihilitia's 7-song album, "Nihilist Militia," is out now on Keya Records. It is available at shows and online through iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, LaLa, and Shockhound. Recorded and Mixed by Joel Hamilton (Unsane, Peeping Tom, Black Keys) at Studio G Brooklyn. Assistant Engineer Marc Alan Goodman. Additional tracking at Strangeweather Brooklyn. Produced by Joel Hamilton and Nihilitia. Mastered by Chad Clark (Fugazi, Dismemberment Plan, Beauty Pill) at Silver Sonya Studios. Album artwork by Derrick Nau of Skeletonwitch / Apocalypse Nau.

Sounds Like:"Addictively musical in its progressive flavor yet filled with all that metallic muscle to give it street cred."
The Ripple Effect
"They’re more or less the District of Columbia’s own Made Out of Babies."
"a breath of fresh air from all of the operatic Tarja sound-alikes that are prevalent in female metal vocalists these days"
"If my dreams came true, I’d love to see a show combining the likes of Nihilitia, The Sword and Mastodon."
All Metal Resource
"If this had come out in the 80’s, Nihilitia would make a hell of an addition on the SST label, right in between Saccharine Trust and Wurm."
"Fortunately, Nihilitia are talented, creative, and just crazy enough to make this mess work."
Heavy Metal Time Machine
"an impressive hybrid of doom, stoner and noise rock that is highlighted by a rumbling rhythm section and some accomplished riffing."
Sea of Tranquility
