San Francisco Bay Area-based innovative death metal quartet, RINGS OF SATURN, has released a teaser for their impending Lugal Ki En LP, the album nearing release in one month via Unique Leader Records. Featuring a sampling of some of the music from the blistering, cutting-edge album, as well as the vibrant alien-based artwork, the five-minute-long trailer gives technical death metal-seeking enthusiasts a brutally diverse sampling of the beautifully progressive and downright savage tunes quarantined on Lugal Ki En.

From October 23rd through November 29th, the thirty-city maelstrom will wind through the entire country and into Canada in a clockwise pattern, the mission beginning and concluding in California.
