Rings Of Saturn Shredding Online; Live Shred Begins Tonight!!
July 11, 2010
, the percussive wrecking machine for Northern California's tech death metal extremists, Rings of Saturn
, has posted his own version of a "Betcha Can't Fucking Play This
" style video online (this is more of my personal opinion, don't take that as gospel truth and go about leaving douchebag comments about how you 'can too' play it - Ed.). The video showcases the drum work for the song "Grinding of Internal Organs
," from the band's independently released debut full length, 'Embryonic Anomaly'
. Check out the video below.
With much hype surrounding them all over the interwebs (which of course includes a fair share of detractors) and without any real touring history to speak of, Rings Of Saturn
have managed to built a solid supportive fanbase (and piqued the interest of some industry peeps as well) due to their focus on consistent DIY promotion and marketing. Something that most bands don't focus enough on. Because of this, there are a lot of positive things going on within the RoS
camp and fans can expect some announcements to be made in the weeks to come.

can be purchased directly from the band via links on their Myspace page
as well as here on their Loudside profile page

The otherworldly triumvirate known as Rings of Saturn made their presence known in the late Fall of 2009, posting a track entitled 'Abducted' online for the world to take notice. The goal was to indoctrinate the metal masses using the world's most massive social networks to their advantage, and the project has been a huge success. From the launch of the first track to the unleashing of the virus known as 'Embryonic Anomaly’ in the following months, it didn't take long for the Aliencore infection to spread, creating a loyal following of 'minions' who's devotion to the band was immediate and remains steadfast.
'Embryonic Anomaly', which was Produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Bob Swanson at Mayhemenness Studios in Sacramento, CA and features artwork by Tony Koehl (The Black Dahlia Murder, Dismal Lapse), was initially made available directly from the band to ensure that their 'minions' continued to be fully engaged. However, demand for the product increased and eventually required a larger pipeline for distribution, thus a deal was made to have 'Embryonic Anomaly' available exclusively at select locations of the well established company known as Hot Topic. Demand continues to grow as the band continues to gain support.
Regarding that support, Rings Of Saturn are now sponsored by the world's most notorious high energy beverage, Cocaine Energy Drink. Percussive wrecking machine, Brent Silletto, also managed to gain an endorsement with Saluda Custom Cymbals. And the face melting mastermind behind it all, Lucas Mann is endorsed by Halo Custom Guitars. The Triumvirate has also managed to gain praise and support from members of Tennessee's extreme metal titans, Whitechapel (Metal Blade), Northern California shredders Conducting From The Grave (Sumerian) and Slaughterbox (whose former guitarist Hal Rotter is responsible for designing the band's custom myspace layout), and Arizona's tech shred masters Viraemia.
And now the final phase is near completion. Unique Leader Records, home to a dominant force of the Underground Death Metal Elite, has agreed to unleash 'Embryonic Anomaly' on an unsuspecting planet on March 1st, 2011. The date has been set and you have been warned...
The Invasion was just the beginning... prepare to be abducted!
