Rings of Saturn – Dingir

For a band so young, Rings of Saturn have become strangely notorious in such a short career. The last thing the already controversial genre of tech-death needed was a band with roots in deathcore born out of the technological age in both digitally processed aesthetic and a chaotic, unfiltered attitude. In that regard, Rings of Saturn are a product of their environment, aligning themselves firmly on the overindulgent side of the genre of technical death metal (a la Viraemia and Brain Drill) for their debut album, Embryonic Anomaly. It’s easy to see how a band as extreme as Rings of Saturn can be so polarizing at first glance.
