It has been just over 2 years since RINGS OF SATURN‘s first full-length album Embryonic Anomaly was re-released on Unique Leader Records. Since that time, RINGS OF SATURN has been hard at work writing their much anticipated sophomore release, as well as consistently touring across the United States and Canada .
With the recent release of RINGS OF SATURN‘s sampler from their upcoming album entitled Dingir (din-jeer) there has been an overwhelmingly positive response as well as growing anticipation for what’s to come next from the band. The album is set for a tentative release date of Nov. 20th, 2012 on Unique Leader Records and will have a running time of roughly 42 minutes in length.
Dingir track listing:
1. Objective to Harvest
2. Galactic Cleansing
3. Shards of Scorched Flesh
4. Feast Upon their Bowels
5. Faces Imploding
6. Peeling Arteries
8. Fruitless Existence
9. Immaculate Order
10. Utopia (Instrumental)
Lucas Mann, the original founding member of RINGS OF SATURN, released this statement regarding the direction the band is taking with their new album.
“Instrumentally, we wanted to expand on the chaotic sound that we have become known for in Embryonic Anomaly, but at the same time wanted to add in new progressive and melodic elements that would compliment all the dissonance found in our music. This is very apparent on the instrumental track, Utopia, and on the second to last track, Immaculate Order, where you will find that we concentrated solely on progressive melody.
Lyrically, the album stays true to the subjects that Rings of Saturn is known for. The album title “Dingir” translates over from ancient Sumerian language meaning deity, god, or sky. In the stance of the album, Dingir portrays the aliens as gods who created man, and also harvest and ultimately destroy the human civilization.”
