Bay Area tech-death outfit, RINGS OF SATURN, has unveiled the initial single from their highly awaited third full-length album, Lugal Ki En, through a conceptual 3-D video for the album’s opening track, “Senseless Massacre.”
The newly constructed “Senseless Massacre” video was directed and edited by Alex T Reinhard and shot and produced by Brooke Brennan, both of Brutal Productions, and features visual effects courtesy of Harsh Wayne Enterprises. The video was also constructed with 3-D viewing enabled via Youtube player settings, though 3-D glasses are required to delve into the other dimension full-on. Issues founding guitarist Lucas Mann of the track, “’Senseless Massacre’ is the first debut single off of RINGS OF SATURN’s new album, Lugal Ki En, on Unique Leader Records. The music video depicts the band as aliens (full-black eyes) performing on alien-like instruments (Etherial Guitars) with their vocalist, Ian Bearer, being abducted and tortured in extraterrestrial machinery. After being tortured and experimented on, his blood turns blue at the end of the video showing that he has transformed and is no longer human. This conveys the idea that aliens could already be living along side us without the general population being aware of it.”
RINGS OF SATURN’s “Senseless Massacre” video is now being broadcasted through Metal Injection at THIS LOCATION.
A cataclysmic, relentless nearly forty-five-minute display of the most vicious, sci-fi obliteration from RINGS OF SATURN to date, Lugal Ki En fuses cosmic, otherworldly elements into a forward-thinking form of malevolent death metal/deathcore inundation. A conceptual release based on a story in which the Aliens wage war on the angels and demons of the universe after having conquered humanity — the album title translated from ancient Sumerian cuneiform to mean “King Of The Earthlings, Lord Of The Cosmic World” — the nearly forty-five minute Lugal Ki En was produced by Brette Ciamarra at Studio 344 (Kamikabe, Those Who Fear, Trophies) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The custom cover artwork was commissioned to Mark Cooper of Mind Rape Art, who also crafted the art for the band’s seminal Dingir album.
Lugal Ki En will see worldwide impact via Unique Leader Records this October, in North America on the 14th and in Europe on the 17th. Preorders have been made available RIGHT HERE.
