ARGONAUTA Records is stoked to announce the signing of the Swedish Sludge/Post Metal creature KOLOSS, featuring the talents of Cristoffer Karlsson (voice), Alexander Johansson (guitar), Henrik Hedberg (bass) and Oscar Siggestrom (Drums).
With influences from Neurosis, Cult of Luna and Tool, KOLOSS are now a solid reality with a specific sound made of dramatic, epic and heavy sonorities. The stunning album “Empower the Monster” (digitally self-produced by the band in 2013) will see the light in physical format during April 2014 on VINYL, limited to 250 copies worldwide. A preview of the work can be heard by clicking here:

ZenPunkArt drawings are usually populated by spirituality, introspection and analysis, mutation and the new flesh, giving bodies and brains to a kaleidoscopic whole made up of eclectic characters and situations, works conceived in total harmony with Argonauta Records attitude and behavior.

According to NeeCee Agency, U.S. sludge monsters HOLLOW LEG will have a worldwide re-release of their album “Instinct” under the flag of ARGONAUTA Records.
The band, a duo now quartet, is an enormously toned groove engine hailing from the highways between Deland and Jacksonville, Florida. Their first full length, Instinct, as a duo of guitar and drums from late 2010 and released independently (now completely sold-out), was an action blown forth by their inherent and creative strengths housed within its lyrics and riffs. Since their incarnation as a duo, Hollow Leg has held live performances akin to SLEEP and EYEHATEGOD cooperatively steering a runaway freight train through the center of a volcano. Instinct will be again available February 2014 for a full new life thanks to the exclusive digi-sleeve packaging by the label and the worldwide release. Just wait for a massive assault of slow head-banging music!
According to NeeCee Agency, BENEATH THE STORM, a mysterious one-man sludge wrecking machine led by Igor Shimon, inked a deal with the label Argonauta Records.
Based in Slovenia, it came to life in the cold and long winter of 2012. It awoke on ruins of several underground death metal and sludge bands. The dark and eerie ideas were building up in the founder’s mind for several years and it was the right time for them to be released.
The goal is to create the most brutal and slow-as-possible sound. Influences came from several genres for a final result of absolutely epic Drone-based Funeral Doom/Sludge Metal carnage.
“Temples of Doom” will be available in November in noble digisleeve cd limited edition.
According to NeeCee Agency, Argonauta Records is proud to announce the signing of the Post Metal act FROM OCEANS TO AUTUMN, founded by Brandon Helms (guitars, samples) in the Summer of 2006 — shortly after laying to rest his previous band, Autumn Is Forever, which had a long run between 1997 and 2004.
Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, FROM OCEANS TO AUTUMN are authors of an intriguing and massive “space metal” with roots into “atmospheric/post-metal/rock”.
So far, the band’s discography features two full lengths, split, ep and two concept albums on Silber Media Records.
Their forthcoming work “A Perfect Dawn” will be released in November 2013, on noble digisleeve CD limited edition, and will see the band at its best, with tons of guitars, bass, drums and some piano, creating surprisingly melodic and epic atmospheres.
