DEAF EYES announces to have inked a deal with ARGONAUTA Records. The Instrumental Post Metal band – started as a side project of experimental psych prog metal group Incoming Cerebral Overdrive - was born in 2013 to explore obscure experimental sounds and atmospheres, a monolithic approach to hard and heavy riffs with a “delayed research” of alternative vibes mixed in a psychedelic mood. Think to a blend of PELICAN, RUSSIAN CIRCLES, BREACH and a heavy version of GOBLIN.
The self-titled debut will be released in November on CD and Digital supports. The album has been recorded at Ampire Studio (Pistoia – Italy) by Stefano Tocci and Deaf Eyes, mastered at Studio 73 (Ravenna – Italy) by Riccardo “Paso” Pasini.
The brand new song “The Eyes of Regret” can be streamed below:

ARGONAUTA Records is proud to announce the signing of the progressive avant-garde masters THEE MALDOROR KOLLECTIVE. The band is actually the ongoing collaborative project involving members of the ritual drone doom outfit SHABDA and a very close bunch of talented musicians that led to a over 15 years activity: started as a progressive avant-garde extreme metal phenomenon, Thee Maldoror Kollective evolved into a multi-dimensional experience.
The new album “Knownothingism” is the 9th full length of the band and a massive step into their genre-melting extravaganza. Lyrically inspired by the Yin hemisphere of universal energy, the album features the charming vocals of PINA KOLLARS (courtesy of Peter Gabriel’s Real World Records), moving further the entire work to smartly touch of rock, psych, prog, jazz, while keeping the sound into the most adventurous fields of laptop experimentalism. To be released next fall, Knownothingism is a creative zen walk into sound and a must-have album for all music enthusiasts.
Argonauta Records is excited to announce a new four-piece in the ARGONAUTA Records family. Northern Ireland based band NOCTURNAL TRIP are authors of a stunning “groovy” hard/stoner rock able to blend Sabbath influenced sound, 70’s psychedelic hard rock and a unique touch from the 90’s grunge scene.
Started in early Summer of 2012 by Zakk Fisher (lead guitar), Nathan Conn (rhythm guitar), Adam Porter (drums) and Lana Hunter (vocalist and bass guitar), Nocturnal Trip released their debut EP earlier this year and they are now working on the full length album which will see the light next Fall.
