|ABOUT RINGS OF SATURN|
Arriving back on the scene with their fourth full length studio album Ultu Ulla and now signed to Nuclear Blast Records as of May 2016, return technical death core musicians RINGS OF SATURN. This self-dictated ‘Alien death core’ band present an entirely new and esoteric proposition to heavy metal. Terrorizing earthlings with their intense measures of technicality is something that RINGS OF SATURNexcel in. Always pushing boundaries, yet maintaining a level enough balance to safeguard the sound that their fans love, they have mastered a rare form of self-control as they continue to shred, break down, and scream their way through modern music. Always looking for new ways to expand upon their current sound, RINGS OF SATURN present a level of technical precision which is rare to see in modern death core. Currently, their lineup includes founding member Lucas Mann on guitar, Miles Dimitri Baker on guitar, Aaron Stechauner on drums, and vocalist Ian Bearer. This album cycle the guys deliver to us quite possibly their most polished sounding tracks yet. They showcase funky rhythm and skull crushing breakdowns that are so powerful they drag you to the ground while still lending the feeling of speeding through a math equation.RINGS OF SATURN are a powerhouse of heaviness, mind bending theme, and unbridled technicality. “We’re an experimental band and our fans know that. the most important part is to be able to express yourself during any point in your life through your music. We’ll continue experimenting and reaching for new exciting things. Every single part of the album will have your blood pumping too hard: be careful when listening, please!” The invasion of RINGS OF SATURN is a permanent one, earthlings. Stay tuned to bear witness to the continual development of their incredible sound as the celestial bodies revolve!

“Who is Nekrogoblikon? Where did they come from? What is goblin metal? Why write songs about goblins? When will I stop feeling so alone?” The answer to all of your questions is it really doesn’t matter. What you should instead be concerned with is the fact that your life is probably not nearly as satisfying as it could be, and Nekrogoblikon is here to fix that. Their new album Heavy Meta has not only been in the works for the last 49 years, but also is the first album in history to receive three Grammys (and even one Oscar) without ever having been completed or released. In 1987, psychiatrists worldwide began prescribing audio snippets of the in-progress album to patients in lieu of antidepressants, and by 2001 the album had gone “Secret Platinum.” However, it wasn’t until now that Nekrogoblikon felt that the general masses would be able to handle the concentrated dose of pure joy that is Heavy Meta. The album arrives on June 2nd, 2015, and is promised by the band to be both “really, really good” and “something people will want to buy…or torrent.”
Allegaeon released Proponent for Sentience in September of 2016. The album was produced by Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation) and is a complex, intelligent, and absorbing concept record that can rightfully sit alongside the true greats of the medium. The album debuted at #6 on the Billboard Top New Artist charts, #11 on Current Hard Music Albums, #33 on Current Rock Albums, and several additional Billboard charts. Allegaeon will begin recording their fifth full-length album with Otero at Flatline Audio in March. The Denver, CO based band signed to Metal Blade Records in 2009. On January 6th, Allegaeonreleased a single for their cover of Rush’s Animate. That single can be heard online everywhere, including Spotify HERE.
