Reindeer Metal from Kuusamo, Finland. Established in 1987.

With its roots firmly planted in the barren lands of Kuusamo, Finland, A.R.G. is a child of the Finnish mid- to late 80s thrash metal explosion. The band started in 1987 as a pastime between a bunch of thrash crazed friends “on full speed with zero skills”, as guitarist/vocalist Jari Kelloniemi puts it, with S.O.D. influences and hardcore punk attitude.
Now, after a 15+ year hiatus and their comeback in early 2011, the elder statesmen of Finnish thrash return with a brandnew album called “Redemption from Refaim”. A.R.G. anno 2015 present to you an album with enough musical somersaults, hairpin curves and about-turns to delight a demanding aficionado of technical thrash, a firm grasp of brand of yet whipping brutal and in-yer-face to bang the head that doesn't bang!
