Staten Island sextet Eyes of Argus showcase a great depth on their complex yet completely accessible four-track endeavor titled ABANDONED. Meeting where Pink Floyd, Incubus, and Grey Skies Fallen converge, songs like "Show Me" are driven by aggressive acoustic guitar and intriguing percussion while the title cut is led by cascading piano and synths, all the while substituting raw heaviness for sheer intensity. Championing a uniquely extreme coffee house sound that weaves folk metal, world beat, and smooth jazz into its tapestry, this outfit's stellar musicianship and durable songwriting prowess make them palatable for the tree hugging hippie love crew and the left of center metal fan that digs epic songs about Vikings and mythology alike.
