CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC announces to have reached an agreement with Pennsylvania's ARGUS for the release of their new album entitled "Boldly Stride the Doomed".

ARGUS was formed in 2007 and released their self titled debut album on Shadow Kingdom records in 2009. The press favorably welcomed the band, describing ARGUS as "...a chest-thumping display of epic heavy metal as performed by a bunch of staunch doom metal fans. Indeed, Argus are all about big riffs, galloping anthems, dark melodies and tube amps." (Liz Brenner, Decibel)

Chris Barnes at HELLRIDE MUSIC had to say this about ARGUS: "Take some classic, dual guitar playing (read METAL) filter it through a mixture of melancholy doom riffs, lockstep rhythmic work and soaring, emotional vocals and you’ve got the recipe for success. You can’t argue with this band on record, and they never miss a step live. It’s a shame that a veteran crew such as this isn’t touring (and headlining over) the current crop of popular doom rockers such as The Sword, Early Man, etc."

The recordings of "Boldly Stride The Doomed" will take place at Soundscape Studios in Pittsburgh, PA. The initial tracking sessions are set to begin on Dec. 4-6th and will continue throughout December and January. The one and only master of heavy metal wizardry, Dave Watson, will be at the engineering and production helm once again after his acclaimed job on ARGUS' self-titled debut album.

The new "Boldly Stride The Doomed" is set to contain approximately 8-9 songs, including track titles such as:"A Curse On The World", "The Ladder", "42-7-29", and "Durendal". As Michael Wuensch at Metalreview.com said, "...strangers to the band who prefer their metal melodic, galloping and built on a classic doom foundation, consider ARGUS your call to arms..."

ARGUS features Bruce Balich of PENANCE fame on vocals and will perform on the 16th of April 2011 at the HAMMER OF DOOM V festival, the prestigious doom and epic metal annual appointment in WĂĽrzburg,Germany . ARGUS will have the chance to perform together with a cast of incredible bands such as PENTAGRAM, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, ATLANTEAN KODEX, SOLSTICE and many more... an event for the upcoming year to take note of.

"Boldly Stride the Doomed" will be released by CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC simultaneously on CD, vinyl and digital form on the 3rd of May 2011.

Outstanding news. Argus' eponymous album was a showcase of compelling musicianship and songwriting and I'm sure they'll do the debut justice. Great to see another band on a label that really cares about quality and respects the musician's decisions.
Are you an unhappy man or are you just insane?

The samples I've heard so far are outstanding. The Cruz del Sur saga continues.
