Esoteric Ritual Drone duo SEPVLCRVM are now part of the ARGONAUTA Records family! Hailing from Genova (Italy), SEPVLCRVM is a mysterious journey of mystical ascent, based on a deep inner interpretation of primordial knowledge and ancient sacred scriptures. Working as a sonic incantation to a back-drop of bold religious imagery and iconography, this duo summons a haunting soundtrack of pure uncontaminated improvisation.
After their album “Hermeticvm” released in 2010, SEPVLCRVM are now working on the final process of their new opus, scheduled by early 2016, a spiritual work made of hypnotic guitars, occult drones and whispered evocations.
Atmospheric Doom Metallers WOWS have inked a deal with ARGONAUTA Records. Born in 2008 in Verona, Italy, WOWS create a unique and huge sound, giving life and form to a majestic monster (or divine creature), where low frequencies, heavy guitars and complex drums patterns are only a part of their outstanding proposal made of progressive atmospheres, sludge assaults and post metal vibes.
About working with Argonauta, the band says: “We are enthusiastic and proud to be part of Argonauta Records family. We know that together we could grow and be heard alongside great musicians, artists and people. We can’t wait to get on the stage and spread our music across the board. We are gonna crack skulls!“
New album to be released in November 2015.

Argonauta Records are excited to announce that Italian Instrumental Post Metallers JORDAAN are now part of the ARGONAUTA Family! Born in Torino during 2009, JORDAAN aim to create their own idea of music, free from structural constraints as well as more focused on emotional flows, time, sounds and colors.
JORDAAN’s music is completely instrumental and based on post-metal movements, sound consistency and groove, with post-rock influences, especially for the tracks’ length and for their structure usually based on long ambient crescendos and alternations between melodic and heavy tunes.
JORDAAN released their first EP in February 2012, entitled “An Drone Myda”, including five self-produced tracks. In December 2012 they released a split album called “Sanctity is a Way to Armageddon”.

Argonauta Records have signed a new great band in its roster family: MOUNTAIN TAMER, a heavy psych trio, emerged from the forests of Santa Cruz, CA in 2010.
The three have refused to set a limit on psychedelic experimentation, demonstrated by their immersive recordings and their one of a kind, hypnotic live performances. The mind-expanding sounds and heavy riffs Mountain Tamer creates can be traced from an influence of 60’s and 70’s classic/psych rock delivered with an in-your-face punk rock attitude. Melodic hooks, omnipresent bass riffs and complex rhythms pull you into Mountain Tamer’s dark, kaleidoscopic world, transporting you to a realm that transcends both time and space.
About working Argonauta, the band says: “We’re excited to be working with Argonauta, an awesome label with some great musical talents. We are looking forward to release our new, self titled album through Argonauta, as it is our most focused and accessible effort to date. We can’t wait to show the world what we have been working on and enjoy our musical future with Argonauta”.

As you all know, on April 25 Nepal was shaken from the bowels of earth, affecting 8 million people, more than 5,000 confirmed victims, which could reach up to 10,000 according to recent estimates, as more than half of the population of Nepal constitutes of children.
This earthquake is a karmic event we all have to put the utmost attention on, because the external wounds are only the outward manifestation of the lacerations that already happened in the depths of human soul.
Now it’s time to help. SHABDA, in partnership with Argonauta Records, will actively support the populations affected by the earthquake by donating 1 euro for each copy sold of the forthcoming Pharmakon/Pharmakos album to Nepalese children through Save the Children. In the while Marco, with his Zenpunk poster brand, will donate to the same association his entire royalties from sales of his new poster that is available on the Argonauta shop here: http://shop.pe/Xpyp5. For more informations and to actively contribute and support this initiative, please contact Marco at firstname.lastname@example.org – www.facebook.com/shabdaofficial
ARGONAUTA RECORDS organized the first official Argonauta Records Fest on May 10, 2015 in Bosco Marengo, Italy, where was shot a promo video clip, filmed and edited by http://www.facebook.com/ivan.g.ferrera, the sum-up of the first edition is available here:
From the label: “It’s already been 12 days since our first ARGONAUTA Fest, an event that only a year ago it was impossible even to think about and that has now become reality. Six bands took turns on stage to give life to an incredible evening that represents for us a small but important step in what we want to do in the future, with daily passion and devotion. The ARGONAUTA Fest is something really important to us and its feedbacks gave us additional enthusiasm to continue with our intentions. Thanks to all the bands of our roster, to all ARGONAUTA Records collaborators and all those attending to the show to have made a dream of a few reality for many. See you next year!”.
