Following its release through Unique Leader Records in October 2014, Rings of Saturn’s remorseless, jaw-dropping, Lugal Ki En, took the #116 spot on the Billboard top 200 chart, #3 on the Heatseekers/New Artist chart and #26 on the Independent album chart. The album also slaughtered the Hard Music chart taking the #12 position, as well as #41 on the Rock chart. A cataclysmic display of over-the-top technical death metal, Lugal Ki En surges with nearly forty-five minutes relentless, cyber-infused deathcore destruction, based on a lyrical concept in which the Aliens wage war on the angels and demons of the universe after having conquered humanity. The album was produced by Brette Ciamarra at Studio 344 (Kamikabe, Those Who Fear, Trophies), and features conceptual art pieces by Mark Cooper of Mind Rape Art.
