Sargon  


This band deserves note for a couple of reasons -- one, they originally hailed from Panama, hardly a metal hotbed, and two, for a relative new unknown, leader Frank van Kwartel has roped in several respected names in the metal underground to play with him. Anyway, on the In Contempt full-length, Sargon plays agressive yet melodic thrash metal overlaid with rather screechy vocals. van Kwartel may be better suited to sticking with guitars, as he shows quite a bit of flash with well-played solos. The band is now established in Arizona.
