Formed in a basement on Capitol Hill in 2006, Nihilitia built a loyal following among heavy music fans in the DC area with their triumphant and melodic "stonerglam" sound while sharing the stage with acts including Skeletonwitch, the Sword, Darkest Hour, Weedeater, Red Fang, Intronaut, Stinking Lizaveta, Early Man, Black Tusk, Struck by Lightning, Year Long Disaster, Hero Destroyed (Relapse), Deadsea (Chrome Leaf), King Giant (Southern Darkness), Salome (Vendetta), Olympia (Equal Vision), and more.

In 2009 Nihilitia released and toured in support of "Nihilist Militia," garnering national attention for lead track,"The One." The album was recorded at Studio G in Brooklyn, NY by noted producer Joel Hamilton (Tom Waits, Blackroc, Unsane, Secret Chiefs 3, Made Out of Babies) and Nihilitia.
