VARGA return with new Prog-Metal Tour De Force, 'ENTER THE METAL'

By: Varga
TORONTO - Nov. 7, 2013 - PRLog -- Hamilton, Ontario-based progressive metal band, VARGA, has just unleashed their 3rd full-length studio recording, 'Enter the Metal,' via the band's own label, Vargantuan Music. Currently available digitally on iTunes and, there are several formats of hi-resolution downloads available for purchase from the band's own website. CD’s will begin shipping and in stores November 14th, but can be pre ordered from until then.

Comprised of members Joe Varga (bass & vocals), Adam Alex (guitar), Sean Williamson (guitar), and Dan Fila (drums), the veteran band (originally formed in 1989) has built a large and loyal following of heavy metal fans, particular in their home country, on the strength of such popular releases as 1994's 'Prototype (Zoo records),' which spawned the hits "Freeze Don't Move" and "Greed" earning the band a thumbs up on the then popular Beavis and Butthead MTV program. After over a decade apart, Varga reunited in 2011, and issued their awesome reunion effort, 'Enter the Metal' (their first new studio album in 17 years).

The album was produced by long time friend and producer/engineer, Julius “Juice” Butty (Alexisonfire, Protest the Hero), and recorded at both Six Nations’ Jukasa Studio, and Butty’s own Silo Studios. As the band's leader, Joe Varga, states, “In this collection of music, you’ll hear a return to our metal and progressive roots with songs laden with heavy licks, crazy time changes and insane vocals.”

As heard throughout 'Enter the Metal,' the long delay between releases has not dulled Varga's penchant for penning inspired and challenging heavy metal in the slightest. Welcome back, lads!
