Nullingroots are newly signed to Prosthetic Records, but have been on the scene playing their personal brand of blackened shoegaze since their first release in 2014. They’re currently supporting their newest release Into The Greyand on today’s episode of Rigged, they take us through their rigs for onstage and in the studio!

Originally the project of sole member, Cameron Boesch, Nullingroots was formed in 2014 in Southern California. A debut, self-titled album was released shortly thereafter, which extracted Boesch’s post-black metal style from his previous band, Solus, and incorporated lush, gazing atmospheric elements.

Boesch released two more Nullingroots full-lengths before assembling his band, comprised of Deacon Blue Batchelor, from the folk band Andrew Jackson Jihad on drums, and guitarist Alex Haddad. Shortly after, the three began writing Into The Grey. Self-produced, mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley at the Atomic Garden Recording Studio, Into the Grey is an expansion of Boesch’s vision. Everything is intensified; from the brutal opening track “Subsistence”, to the somber passages in “The Morning That Killed The World”, to the title track ending opus.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
