These guys are awesome!! If you like Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Candlemass and Solitude Aeturnus then you'll like this. If not then you suck anyway.

These lads are from the US and have released a very impressive demo just this year.

The demo is avaible for free download at this Website

The one person is now back with an opinion Been listening to the stuff I downloaded. It's quite all right. Solid heavy metal. The singer is a little weak at times, but nothing serious. Guess he just have to get some more experience. All in all a good band

Spose the vocal preformance does come down to a matter of opinion, though I think its still strong and well done. A good band? Fuck yes!! Why more people havent bothered with them yet is crazy.

Also heard that they might be making 7" of these demos. Not confirmed though.

I downloaded it right now, after one listen it sound pretty good, I like the sound, guitars are awesome, production is good for a demo. Sometimes, they remind me little on Iron Maiden, especially on solos with both guitars, and in other they sound pretty aggressive with sharp riffs for heavy metal. Vocal is ok, nothing spectacular but pretty good. I will listen to it few more times, maybe I discover something new

I too am downloading it right now. I've heard the first track - Beyond - and it's sounding really good. You're right about the vocals being nothing special, but this is only a demo - if they get a deal with a rec label and record a full length album, they will improve his voice a lot. As for the rest of the band, the riffs are THAT good and drummer holds his own as well.
Overall, really good band, looking forward to hearing the rest of the demo!

Holly shit dude, i just checked Ana Nikolic in the FHM and i was like wow ! I saw some of her vids on youtube, she has amazing legs. Only thing wrong with those thighs is that they're not around my face ! I see you got some real talent in Serbia, and i don't mean musical talent!

Hey mate, cool of you to sign up. I just received your email today. (I'm Lucas from the Netherlands)
I thought you forgot about me, since you hadn't replied in.. 5/6 weeks or something. But I'm glad I can still buy the cd!

Good luck with your ARGUS!

Loving the demo so far, this is definately one of the better bands I've heard so far this year! I don't think my headphones are doing it justice though, I need to get my amp wired up.

On a less serious note, I wouldn't wear one of their band shirts since The Argus is the name of our shitty local paper where I live. I'd just get stupid questions all day about why I was supporting it, a bit like with my Katatonia hoodie and people confusing it with the welsh band Cataonia who did pop music and sung with Tom Jones - Ugh.

Are you vocalist?

Anyway, just to wish you very good luck with the band, it was nice gesture from you to sign up in our community (noope, we are not sect ), and since you was that kind, I will do my best to promote your music here through my webzine and biggest Serbian metal portal http://www.yumetal.net/forum/index.php?

Aronax - I am the vocalist. I sang for US Doom Metal Band PENANCE from 1997-2005 (plus one show in 2007). Met these guys via their former singer, Eric Johnson, a fraternity brother of mine. We hit it off immediately personally and musically and have been working towards building our sound. Thanks for your welcome !! I look forward to joining in conversation here when I can as I am a huge metal fan. I love many kinds of music but metal is my favorite.

Awesome mate, I know for Penance, I have one album, it seams it is from 2003, it is downloaded though, sorry for that. Personally, I like Argus more, I am not in Doom that much while Argus is very good as I wrote.
Btw, Penance bassist looks great

Downloading doesn't bother me. I never made money from Penance so I never saw it as cutting into my lifestyle. I think you have "Spiritualnatural" - that was our 2003 release. My favorite, vocally, of the 3 I did with the band.

Yeah, that is the album I have, it is great indeed, not my genre, but I like the sound on that one. I will find some more, about money, I know, I am in the band with releases too, and I never saw even a coin from it, so I give people to download, everything I ever got is few beers per gig

Haven't posted on Metalstorm for quite a while now, but since I saw this Demo reviewed, I thought I'd just put my opinion here. Got this a while ago through Hellride. I fucking love the demo! And Butch, your voice is fucking awesome. Excellent stuff; can't wait for your album to come out. I'd buy that without listening to any songs!
I like the stuff you did with Penance. The Against Nature bit was hard to digest musically, but it was still good fare for the most of it. Cheers.
