ARGUS, the Pennsylvania-based metal band featuring former PENANCE vocalist Brian "Butch" Balich, will release its self-titled debut CD through Shadow Kingdom Records. The group says, "We're wrapping up the recording of the album, which will feature nine songs. We've got Professor John Gallo (ORODRUIN, BLIZARO) guesting on the album as well, contributing an intro piece to 'The Damnation of John Faustus'. Art is being completed by the masterful Brad Moore."

ARGUS recently announced the addition of guitarist Erik Johnson to the group's ranks. Erik replaces Mike Wisniewski who left the band in September. ARGUS says in a statement, "Erik was a founding member of ARGUS and we're excited to add him back as guitarist. We've already begun writing for the follow-up to our debut and he has already contributed in this area."
