A lot of sites have been talking up this new Rings of Saturn album.
It’s coming out on Unique Leader Records February 5 and it is called Dingir.
That’s din-jeer, folks. No idea what that means, but it probably isn’t supposed to have a meaning.
The record is the band’s second and was mixed and mastered by Robert Swanson of Mayhemeness Studios in Sacramento, California. You can even hear it in full at the end of this post, and judge for yourself.
A press release claims “the over-the-top technical machine have out done themselves once again with shredding guitar work, blisteringly fast drum work, and crushing vocals. While the band stays true to their unique alien-like sound that they are known for, they also expand on it to surprising heights with Dingir.
“Groovy rhythms, structured solos, subtle melodic passages, and better overall production bring a much more mature and refined sound to the band which is sure to please old and new listeners alike,” the release adds.
Listening to this album, I can’t help but think that’s a drum machine. If it isn’t, these dudes sure know how to play. I like the guitars. I will have to listen to it while driving. That’s when I truly judge music.
