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 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 and 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 by Shadow Kingdom Records in May of 2009, receiving much critical praise. Following, was the 2011 release of the epic album Boldly Stride The Doomed, which also marks a switch to the Cruz Del Sur record label. The band has continued to gain notoriety, traveling abroad and around the U.S. Their third full-length album, Beyond The Martyrs, was released early in October 2013, creating a metal trifecta.
The band is currently working on their fourth full length album while focusing on a continued push to be out in the scene playing as much as possible.
