Argonauta Records have announced a new band in the Argonauta Records family: OBESE is crunchy, catchy, powerful and above all heavy as hell. Bringing the groove back into stoner and feeding your appetite with fat tunes that will leave you hungry for more. The weight and thickness of sound is being explored one track at a time: corpulency never felt that good. The immense riffage in a vast landscape of bulldozing euphony will leave nobody unsatisfied.
OBESE is releasing their debut album on Argonauta Records in May 2015. A first official teaser is available below:

ARGONAUTA Records have inked a deal with DENIZEN, massive Stoner Rock from France. Formed between Montpellier and Sète in 2003, DENIZEN released a first demo/EP and the first demo/album “Far From Common Strategy” in 2006. Now, after two albums – “Snatches into Uproar” (2009) and “Whispering Wild Stories” (2011) – the band is ready for the come-back with their stunning fourth album “Troubled Waters”, recorded during year 2014. Although you can feel a more melodic Heavy Rock feeling with Blues influences, the band’s main concern is focused on the riff.
As on the previous albums, the mastering is entrusted to Nick Zampiello and Rob Gonella, which have long proven themselves with groups such as Keelhaul, Converge, Scissorfight to name a few. Artwork is done by famous French comic book designer Brice Cossu.
“Troubled Waters” will be available on CD/DD early Spring 2015.
Argonauta Records have announced the new intriguing name in their roster family! BANTORIAK is a project by Izio Orsini, involving other Italian musicians, that follows the one vision of an experimental work influenced by psychedelic, doom and atmospheric sound.
Beyond genres, it flows as hypnotic trip from the Ganges river to the California desert, reflecting the genuine approach on the musical taste, playing entirely with 70’s vintage and handcrafted instruments.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Mattia Cominotto at Greenfog Studio (INFECTION CODE, EREMITE), the forthcoming album, scheduled for early 2015, will feature on drums Fabio of EREMITE and guest vocals by Rosy (PROFANAL) and Giacomo (ISAAK).
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
