Pennsylvania's Argus stormed onto the underground metal scene with their twin guitar-driven, doom-tinged, working class metal sound. Releasing a self-recorded demo in early 2007 on John Brenner's (Revelation/Against Nature) DIY label, Bland Hand Records, the band was roundly welcomed by the metal community at home as well as abroad and established its foundation amongst friends/fans within the scene. With this initial momentum, the band created a buzz that was only solidified by their punishing live performances. Their self-titled debut album was released in May of 2009 receiving much critical praise. The band continued to gain notoriety attracting like-minded fans world-wide who celebrate the genre and its core values of: hard work, discipline, and integrity. Featuring the powerful voice of former Pennance vocalist Butch Balich, Argus prepares to cement themselves within the metal archives with its sophomore effort, "Boldly Stride the Doomed", on Cruz del Sur Music in early May of 2011.
