Rings of Saturn have been building up a ton of buzz and momentum lately, and I haven’t been paying as much attention to them as I should. I think I heard a song from a couple of years ago that was essentially Brain Drill wank with deathcore breakdowns, and I wasn’t in the mood to have it. Maybe it was just one song or something and I got unlucky, but judging my the new sampler for their upcoming album, they’ve apparently upped the ante a lot!
Sure, there’s still a bunch of over-the-top wank and chug going on, but there’s a ton of gold in the sampler, with melodic leads and proggy riffs. They’ve apparently finished the album, with more details to be announced soon. Looks like I have something new to look forward to!
