Argus  


Argus is an up-and-coming band on the respected indie Shadow Kingdom label, breaking through with a self-titled debut in the spring of 2009. The notable player here is vocalist Brian Balich, who fronted the fine Penance for several years and brings his rock-solid, powerful midrange vocals to the table. He's as good as anyone in the field, and is capably backed up the rest of the band. The musical style isn't quite traditional doom (though there are plenty of doomy riffs) but a slightly more uptempo semi-doom metal style, with plenty of nice harmonized riffs and solos to keep the listener occupied. An all-round solid effort in the underground American doom scene.
