Argentinum Astrum Gets Noted Distribution

Noted avant-metal label Crucial Blast has picked up the self-titled debut from Knoxville drone/doom band Argentinum Astrum for distribution. The label describes the single 26-minute song on the disc, initially released in early 2008, as "primitive, noise-damaged sludge on busted amplifiers and broken guitars, electronic noise detritus dripping from their instruments, swampy low-frequency buzz infesting their blasted boogie."
