Bay Area technical death metallers, RINGS OF SATURN, recently completed work on their forthcoming new full-length. Set for release this Fall via Unique Leader Records, the record 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 ofMind Rape Art, who crafted the band's seminal Dingir cover. The offering also boasts a vicious cover of "No Pity For A Coward," from California deathcore merchants, Suicide Silence, in honor of late frontman, Mitch Lucker, who's praised RINGS OF SATURN's pummeling output in the past [video interview excerpt here].
Comments guitarist Lucas Mann of the forthcoming release, "We are very pleased with the final outcome of the new album and are looking forward to unleashing it on our fans in the coming months! Through a group writing effort, we have taken a new and exciting direction with this album while still staying true to the brutal, technical, and overwhelming sound that RINGS OF SATURN fans enjoy. We are looking forward to all the feedback from everyone, as well as hitting the road again on tour with the new material."
As a precursor to the record's unveiling, RINGS OF SATURN will embark upon The Face Implosion Tour with Arsonists Get All The Girls, Auras and AEnimus. Set to commence on July 9th in Sacramento, the 24-date run will wind its way across the US and back again, coming to a close on August 3rd in San Jose.
