Bay Area technical death metallers and self-proclaimed masters of “aliencore,” RINGS OF SATURN, will unleash their forthcoming new full-length this October via Unique Leader Records. Titled Lugal Ki En, the twelve-track offering was produced by Brette Ciamarra at Studio 344 (Kamikabe, Those Who Fear, Trophies et al) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and features the drum prowess of BLACK TONGUE/Infant Annihilator basher Aaron Kitcher guest solo work by Day Of Reckoning guitarist Rusty Cooley and custom artwork by Mark Cooper of Mind Rape Art, who crafted the band’s seminal Dingir cover.
Comments guitarist, Lucas Mann of the album concept, “The concept of the album in a nutshell is that long after the Aliens conquer humanity, they evolve to a point where they transcend space, time and reality to take their conquest into the realm of the gods where they wage war on angels and demons. The album title Lugal Ki En translates from ancient Sumerian Cuneiform to mean "King Of The Earthlings, Lord Of The Cosmic World." The Sumerian Cuneiform is visible behind the English pronunciation of the album title."
In advance of the record’s official release, RINGS OF SATURN will embark upon The Face Implosion Tour with Arsonists get all the girls, AURAS and Ænimus. Set to commence on July 9th in Sacramento, the near-month long run will wind its way across the US and back again, coming to a close on August 3rd in San Jose. Additionally, RINGS OF SATURN will bring their extra-terrestrial sounds to Mexico in November for four special shows with Lack Of Remorse and Victim Of Greed.
