VARGA Continue Their Prog-Metal Tour De Force With ‘Return Of The Metal’

June 26th, 2014

Return-Of-The-Metal-960x9601-275x275
Hamilton, Ontario-based progressive metal band, VARGA, on Tuesday, July 22nd will release their their 4th full-length studio recording follow up to last Octobers, Enter The Metal with the sequel, Return Of The Metal, via the band’s own Vargantuan Music label. Digital downloads and CD’s are available through iTunes and Amazon.com as well as the bands own vargahq.com web site where several formats of hi-resolution downloads can be purchased as well as CD’s and CD packages.

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 heard throughout ‘Enter The Metal and Return Of The Metal,’ the long delay between releases has not dulled Varga’s penchant for penning inspired and challenging heavy metal in the slightest.

1) Three Section Staff                   (8:18)

2 Afterlife Comes                           (5:54)

VARGA Reunite To Record New Album

November 8th, 2011

Southern Ontario-based metallers VARGA have reunited and are working on an album of new material. Frontman Joe Varga told BraveWords.com that “the original four of us are going into the studio in January to record a full length disk of our old school technical progressive metal material.”

Varga will be recording at Jukasa Studio at Six Nations in Caledonia with longtime friend and producer Julius Butty and world renown engineer Nick Blagona (IAN GILLAN).

Varga – also featuring Dan Fila on drums and guitarists Sean Williamson and Adam Alex – released two albums in the ’90s before they broke up: Prototype (1994) and Oxygen (1996). Dan Fila and Sean Williamson went on to form the short-lived HYPODUST.
