Argonauta Records announce that Post Metallers LAST MINUTE TO JAFFNA is the new huge band in the ARGONAUTA Records roster. Born in Torino (Italy) in the mid of 00’s, LAST MINUTE TO JAFFNA released their first EP in 2006, allowing them to tour in their country and abroad. With their 2008 debut album Volume I they marked a better refinement of their own music style, also touring intensively throughout Europe, even opening for Isis at Torino’s main independent festival. 2011 marked an important step in the band’s history: after playing an unplugged gig opening for Neurosis’ Scott Kelly they decided to record some old tracks and some new ones with acoustic guitars, clean voices and other odd instruments, helped by Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo of Young God Records’s act Larsen. The result was Volume III, which finally came to light in 2014.
Now, the new album Volume II is set to be released by the beginning of 2015, and it is anticipated as a blast of heavy and atmospheric post metal sonorities, recorded and mixed by Lorenzo Stecconi (UFOMAMMUT, ZU, LENTO) and mastered by Collin Jordan (YOB, CORRECTIONS HOUSE, MINSK).
New band in the ARGONAUTA Records family! KAYLETH were born in the Winter of 2005 in the east side of Verona (Italy) aimed at founding a stoner band inspired to groups such as Kyuss, Orange Goblin and 7zuma7. A continuous sound evolution generated self-produced demos and CDs: Not Yet (2006), In the Womb of Time (2008), Rusty Gold (2010) and The Survivor (2012). In 2013, a new member with his synths made Kayleth to explore new opportunities, getting them close to space/psych rock sonorities with a new forthcoming CD, that will be released by early 2015.
Kayleth are: Massimo Dalla Valle (guitar), Daniele Pedrollo (drums), Michele Montanari (synth), Alessandro Zanetti (bass) and Enrico Gastaldo (voice).
Argonauta Records are excited to announce that today they have a new member in the ARGONAUTA Records family: Psychedelic Ritual Sludge outfit NIBIRU inked a deal to release the band’s new album during early 2015!
Coming from Italy and formed by Ardath, RI and Siatris, NIBIRU is a massive trio whose sound is made by huge watts, tribal rhythms and enochian chants. Following the debut album Caosgon and the follow up Netrayoni, the band’s forthcoming album will be a new improved step into “Post Ritual Sludge”, where pure primal instinct, frenetic drum, gaping bass lines and gruesome ancient vocals collides.
“Nibiru are one of the new breed of Italian Sludge Metal bands and they have potential to be one of the most creative and forward thinking bands within the scene”. The SludgeLord

ARGONAUTA Records is proud to announce the signing of the Atmospheric Doom Metal band MAGI, from North Carolina (USA).
Founded in 2011 by Brandon Helms (of From Oceans To Autumn and Mountains Among Us), at first it started out as a metal/drone project, then quickly evolved into a full band profile. MAGI released their first ep titled “33rd Degree” in April of 2011 and their 2nd ep “December” later that same year.
In the Summer of 2014 the band began recording their new songs and that’s when their blend of atmospheric doom metal and post-metal begun to take shape, with strong influences from YOB, Rorcal and Jesu.
The first full length titled “Forget Me Not” is scheduled for early 2015.
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.
