Like chuggawuggas? Like meedlyweedlies? Then the new Rings of Saturn record Dingir should be right up your alley. After an apparent pre-pro version of the album leaked online, the band gave a resounding “fuck it” and decided to give away their album to fans for free via Total Deathcore. The band had this to say:

Here is the official album version of Dingir streamed in high quality. There are many reasons as to why we decided to stream our new album in its entirety before its scheduled release date. One big reason is because we are dealing with legal issues right now which unfortunately WILL push back the release date of Dingir from Nov. 20th to Feb. 5th.

The second reason is that a very poor quality, unfinished, and unmastered, pre-production version of our album went viral across many metal blog spots, torrent sites, and youtube this morning. It is unclear whether the original poster thought that the pre-production version of the album was the actual album, or if the original poster leaked it maliciously. In any case, If you guys are going to listen to a leaked version of our album, we would much rather you listen and jam out to the ACTUAL high quality finished album, rather than a low quality unfinished product. If you DID happen to upload the pre pro version to your Youtube channel (chances are that you did since our video is the first video of the actual finished album) we ask that you please take it down now that the actual album is up streaming because we don’t want to confuse people.

The third reason is that we know you are all tired of waiting for this, we are also EQUALLY tired of waiting, and we know that our true fans will continue to support the band, pre order our album, buy our merch, and come out to our shows. If you ARE in fact a true fan of Rings of Saturn, or you like what you are hearing, or you want to see us come to your town our city, then you will share this video EVERYWHERE, you will show all of your friends, and you will pre order and actually still buy our album when it does come out on Feb. 5th because a band’s first week album sales dictate what tours the band gets on, what slots they get, and where they are able to go. If you want to see us play in Europe, or Australia, or come back to Canada, or back to your state, then you will pre order Dingir or pick up your copy within the first week of its release. We are only able to keep doing this because of your guys support. We will keep everyone posted on pre-orders and new merch from this page. Again the new release date for Dingir is Feb. 5th and remember, SHARE THIS VIDEO and Enjoy!

You can stream the record below:

I’ve never been able to get into Rings of Saturn prior to Dingir, and while I have yet to sit through the whole record, it’s already their best work yet. I’ve seen a few mutterings of general disappointment (ie., butthurt) from folks, but if you think Dingir isn’t as good as their older material, you’re dumb and we can’t be friends anymore. At least Dingir has been listenable — their older material has leaned towards obnoxious. This one shows promise, though.

Dingir will be available for purchase on February 5th, 2013 on Unique Leader Records.
