MANGOG - Inked A Deal With Argonauta Records

Baltimore (USA) based doom metallers Mangog inked a record deal with Argonauta Records. The band was formed by bassist Bert Hall Jr. (Revelation and Against Nature), drummer Stephen Branagan (Revelation, Against Nature and Yet So Far), Major Company's bassist Darby Cox and Final Answer's vocalist Myke Wells. In February of 2015 Drummer Mike Rix (formally of doom legends Iron Man) replaced Steve Branagan. After a year of Revelation and Against Nature being on hiatus, bassist Bert Hall Jr. (now on guitar and vocals) assembled a line-up to form a dark alliance founded on the copious use of punishingly heavy riffs, odd ball time signatures (13/8 anyone?) and dystopian lyrics. The band entered the studio in March 2015 and recorded their debut EP titled Daydreams Within Nightmares. One year later in 2016 the band completed recording its first full length CD titled Mangog Awakens, and was signed to Argonauta Records.
The band says: “Mangog would like to thank Gero for singing us to Argonauta Records, he has fastly become our fifth band member in a sense and we look forward to his expertise and guidance in our future collaboration with this great label.”
The album Mangog Awakens will be released in early 2017. In other news, Mangog will be appearing at this year's Maryland Doom Fest in Frederick, Maryland at Cafe 611 on Sunday 26th June 2016. You can have a taste of the band in the player below. Link
