土星之戒是一支死亡金属核乐队，来自美国加州湾区。乐队成立于2009年，最初只是一个工作室项目。但是，在获得广泛欢迎并签署了Unique Leader Records之后，乐队组成了完整的阵容，并成为了专职巡回乐队。土星音乐的铃声具有很高的技术风格，在很大程度上受外星生命和外太空主题的影响。他们发行了五张全长专辑，第三张专辑Lugal Ki En于2014年发行，在美国Billboard 200排行榜上达到了126的峰值，而第四张专辑Ultu Ulla于2017年发行，并在Billboard 200 上达到了76 的峰值，使其成为该乐队迄今为止的最高峰。Gidim于2019年10月发布。
土星之戒于2009年在高中时成立，当时只是一个录音室录制项目，卢卡斯·曼（Lucas Mann）负责吉他，贝斯和键盘，彼得·帕拉克（Peter Pawlak）负责人声，布伦特·西列托（Brent Silletto）负责鼓。乐队在网上发布了名为“绑架”的曲目，并迅速吸引了听众。乐队与位于加州萨克拉曼多的 Mayhemnness Studios的Bob Swanson一起录制了首张专辑Embryonic Anomaly。该专辑于2010年5月25日由乐队自行发行。在发行《胚胎异常》四个月后，乐队签约了Unique Leader Records。在乐队签约后的几个月中，乔尔·阿曼斯（Joel Omans）被任命为第二吉他手，乐队高中毕业，带领他们踏上了巡回演出。 Embryonic Anomaly在2011年3月1日通过Unique Leader重新发行，并且随后的两张专辑随后也将通过该标签发行。Brent Silletto和Peter Pawlak均于2011年12月离开乐队。
土星之戒，此时仅包括卢卡斯·曼（Lucas Mann）和乔尔·阿曼斯（Joel Omans），与许多不同的旅游成员一起巡回演出，然后组成阵容，分别在人声，贝斯和鼓上增加了伊恩·贝勒，肖恩·马丁内斯和伊恩·贝克。这个阵容与来自Embryonic Anomaly的同一位制作人一起录制了第二张专辑Dingir。该专辑原定于2012年11月20日发行，但由于法律问题，该专辑的发行日期推迟到2013年2月5日。为响应法律要求和该专辑的预生产版本歌手Ian Bearer在互联网上泄漏，在他的YouTube频道上上传了完成的专辑，并把整个专辑通过Total Deathcore下载。 伊恩·贝克（Ian Baker）和肖恩·马丁内斯（Sean Martinez）在Dingir正式发行后不久与乐队分道扬later，随后乐队参加了2013年的夏季屠杀巡演，并为巡回演出添加了Jesse Beahler的鼓手。
土星之戒（Rings of Saturn）在宾夕法尼亚州的匹兹堡开始录制他们的第三张录音室专辑，其中有婴儿 and 灭者亚伦·基彻（Aaron Kitcher）和黑舌乐队（Black Tongue）作为专辑的特别嘉宾来填写所有鼓的安排。专辑完成后，Aaron Stechauner后来成为鼓的专职成员。2014年7月1日，乐队为新专辑Lugal Ki En发布了封面和曲目清单于2014年10月14日发行。他们还发行了首个由Alex T Reinhard执导的“ Senseless Massacre”音乐录影带。乐队不久后首次赴美国，加拿大和墨西哥巡回演出，但新专辑中没有新歌登场。2014年12月9日，乔尔·阿曼斯（Joel Omans）宣布离开乐队，在他的个人Facebook上宣布离开是因为卢卡斯·曼（Lucas Mann）成为“音乐家的骇客”，并“阻止乐队演奏卢加尔·基恩（Lugal Ki En）的新歌”专辑发行之旅。两周后，即12月26日，Miles Dimitri Baker被宣布为新的第二吉他手。
为回应指控，2015年4月2日，土星之戒发行了现场吉他演奏，卢卡斯·曼（Lucas Mann）和迈尔斯·迪米特里·贝克（Miles Dimitri Baker）演唱了专辑Lugal Ki En的歌曲“ Godless Times”。三个月后，即8月28日，乐队发行了单曲“ Seised and Devoured 2.0”，这是他们的第一张专辑《 Embriconic Anomaly》以Ian Bearer的嗓音重新录制的曲目。此后不久，乐队开始在北美巡回演出，其中包括主要由Lugal Ki En的歌曲组成的现场演唱会，这是首次现场演出。那年下半年，乐队在12月25日发行了合作单曲“ Souls Of This Mortality”，并拥有自己的副项目乐队“ Interloper”。然后，土星之环（Rings Of Saturn）于2016年初开始了在欧洲的首次巡演，随后是支持Thy Art Is Murder的北美巡演。 2016年5月17日，乐队宣布他们与Nuclear Blast Records签约。
在2016年7月31日，土星之戒宣布他们已经完成了他们的下一张专辑Ultu Ulla（时间记忆），并于2017年7月28日发行。在2017年6月2日，乐队发行了第二首音乐视频，歌曲为“ Inadequate”。 2017年7月7日，乐队为Ultu Ulla发行了第二首单曲的歌词视频，“平行移位”。鼓手Aaron Stechauner和Miles Dimitri Baker于2018年5月26日宣布离开土星环。Stechauner和Baker离开后不久，通过Facebook宣布前吉他手Joel Omans将与乐队团聚，并亵渎The信仰鼓手Mike Caputo将与日本吉他手Yo Onityan一起加入他们的行列。在2019年2月10日，土星之戒的Facebook页面指出，迈克·卡普托（Mike Caputo）和Yo Onityan目前是巡回演出的成员。乐队发行了第五张工作室专辑Gidim 2019年10月25日，Marco Pitruzella成为鼓手，Berried Alive的Charles Caswell担任客串，演唱《 Pustules》，Enterprise Earth的Dan Watson演唱《 Hypodermis Glitch》， Yo Onityan演唱了《折磨的意识》。
AllMusic将“土星之戒”描述为“ 先进的技术性死亡核心装备”，写道他们“被幽默地认为自己的技术性死亡金属品牌为’aliencore’。” 乐队采用快速节奏，增加了和声效果，节奏快，环境元素，以及处理太空入侵和地球外生命的歌词。
Rings of Saturn is an American deathcore band from the Bay Area, California. The band was formed in 2009 and was originally just a studio project. However, after gaining a wide popularity and signing to Unique Leader Records, the band formed a full line-up and became a full-time touring band. Rings of Saturn’s music features a highly technical style, heavily influenced by themes of alien life and outer space. They have released five full-length albums, with their third, Lugal Ki En, released in 2014 and peaking at 126 on the American Billboard 200 chart while their fourth, Ultu Ulla was released in 2017 and peaked at 76 on the Billboard 200, making it the band’s highest peak to date. Gidim was released in October 2019.
Rings of Saturn was formed in 2009 in high school only as a studio recording project with Lucas Mann on guitars, bass, and keyboards, Peter Pawlak on vocals, and Brent Silletto on drums. The band posted a track titled “Abducted” online and quickly gained listeners. The band recorded their debut album, Embryonic Anomaly, with Bob Swanson at Mayhemnness Studios in Sacramento, CA. The album was self-released by the band on May 25, 2010. Four months after releasing Embryonic Anomaly, the band signed to Unique Leader Records. In the months following the band’s signing, Joel Omans was added as a second guitarist and the band graduated high school which led to their embarking on tours. Embryonic Anomaly was re-released through Unique Leader on March 1, 2011, and their two following albums would later also be released through the label. Brent Silletto and Peter Pawlak both left the band in December 2011.
Rings of Saturn, which at this point only included Lucas Mann and Joel Omans, toured with many different touring members before forming a line-up which added Ian Bearer, Sean Martinez and Ian Baker on vocals, bass, and drums respectively. This line-up recorded their second album, Dingir, with the same producer from Embryonic Anomaly. The album was originally scheduled to be released on November 20, 2012, but due to legal issues, the album release was pushed back to February 5, 2013. In response to the legal push and a pre-production version of the album leaking on the internet, the vocalist, Ian Bearer, uploaded the finished album on his YouTube channel and put up the entire album for download via Total Deathcore. Ian Baker and Sean Martinez parted ways with the band shortly after the official release of Dingir, the band later took part in The Summer Slaughter Tour of 2013 adding Jesse Beahler for drums until the end of the tour.
Rings of Saturn went into recording their 3rd studio album in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, having Aaron Kitcher of Infant Annihilator and Black Tongue to fill in all drums arrangements as a special guest on the album. Aaron Stechauner later joined as a full-time member for drums after the album was finished. On July 1, 2014, the band released the cover art and track list to their new album Lugal Ki En which was released on October 14, 2014. They also released their first music video for “Senseless Massacre” directed by Alex T Reinhard. The band toured the United States, Canada, and for the first time Mexico shortly after but no new songs were played from the newly released album. On December 9, 2014, Joel Omans announced his departure from the band, stating on his personal Facebook that he left because Lucas Mann became “a hack of a musician” and “hindered the band from playing new songs from Lugal Ki En” during its album release tour. Two weeks later, on December 26, Miles Dimitri Baker was announced as their new second guitarist.
On April 2, 2015, Rings of Saturn released a live guitar play-through featuring Lucas Mann and Miles Dimitri Baker performing the song “Godless Times” from the album Lugal Ki En, in response to the allegations. Three months later, on August 28, the band released the single “Seized and Devoured 2.0”, a re-recorded track off of their first album Embryonic Anomaly featuring Ian Bearer’s vocals. Shortly after, the band began touring in North America, with a set-list that consisted of mainly Lugal Ki En songs being played for the first time live. Later that year, On December 25, the band released a collaboration single titled “Souls Of This Mortality” with its very own side project band “Interloper.” Rings Of Saturn then began its first tour in Europe in early 2016, followed by a North American tour supporting Thy Art Is Murder. On May 17, 2016, the band announced that they signed to Nuclear Blast Records.
On July 31, 2016, Rings of Saturn announced that they had finished writing their next album, Ultu Ulla (Time Immemorial), and it was released on July 28, 2017. On June 2, 2017, the band released their second music video for the song “Inadequate”. On July 7, 2017, the band released a lyric video for the second single off Ultu Ulla, “Parallel Shift”. Drummer Aaron Stechauner & Miles Dimitri Baker announced their departure from Rings of Saturn on May 26, 2018. Soon after the departure of Stechauner and Baker, it was announced via Facebook that former guitarist, Joel Omans, would reunite with the band and that Desecrate The Faith drummer, Mike Caputo, will be joining them as well along with Japanese guitarist Yo Onityan. On February 10, 2019, Rings of Saturn’s Facebook page point out that Mike Caputo and Yo Onityan are currently touring members. The band released their fifth studio album titled Gidim on October 25, 2019, featuring Marco Pitruzella on drums, as well as a guest solo from Charles Caswell of Berried Alive on the song “Pustules”, vocals from Dan Watson of Enterprise Earth on the song “Hypodermis Glitch”, and a solo from Yo Onityan on the song “Tormented Consciousness”.
AllMusic described Rings of Saturn as a “progressive, technical deathcore outfit”, writing that they have “humorously deemed their brand of technical death metal ‘aliencore.'” The band employs fast riffing with an added harmony effect, fast tempos, ambient elements, and lyrics that deal with space invasion and extraterrestrial life.
