As if illustrating their own sonic DNA, while maintaining a musical "rule of thirds", The Saturn III has issued another arrangement of a classic (albeit "deep") cut in their field. It should have been obvious that our fresh-faced space trio might reference their namesake, but what's interesting is that they've actually cross-referenced two mediums, bridging a gap between what is arguably Fu Manchu's most atmospheric banger and the B-movie flop by which it was likely inspired.

From their previous work, it's apparent that the Saturn III aren't content to merely "cover" great work verbatim, instead preferring to appropriate a source as if it were their own. By shifting sections like a melodic slide-puzzle and re-purposing rhythms for dynamic effect, they've successfully achieved an amalgam of their fuzzy three-part formula -- One part Doom, another part Desert Rock and finally, Psychedelia -- into a theme of sorts for their unique brand of noise.

Track Name: Saturn III
Spacemen destroy mega asteroids...
Certain time and place; Floatin' out in space.
Four-billion years to cross a universe so vast...
For several years they tried. This will never last.

Now in the second stage, life returns for now...
That huge ship has climbed. They'll make it somehow.
Reducing speed; A message passed...
What are they up against? Time to release the hatch!

The Saturn III takes hold!
Losing all control!
The Saturn III takes hold!

The silence group strikes; Something has appeared...
Re-check the report; Just as we'd feared.
A closer visit planned; Way beyond our reach...
When the smoke has cleared, gather for the speech.
