Four years after Order Of The Illuminati the masters of metal, agents of steel are back with a vengeance. At times faster and more furious than on their previous two outings with Bruce Hall on vocals, and with a clear yet heavy and modern production and mix by the legendary thrash producer Bill Metoyer.

Agent Steel have never been famous for their artwork (in my opinion only the mini Mad Locust Rising has decent artwork) but what Alienigma's cover offers us is truly atrocious. Sorry, but this cover once again shows that in this modern day and age not much thought and effort is put into the artwork. I say: Death to Photoshop and Paint, back to the art days of yore. But it's not about the artwork, thank God. It's still about the music, right? And in this case there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. What we get is still signature Agent Steel, which, let's be honest, has also always been defined by the guitars of Juan Garcia and Bernie Versailles besides John Cyriis' vocals on the first two albums. Signature Agent Steel, albeit a different sort of monster now, much more modern sounding without losing its foothold in the eighties. But I can already hear some people starting to moan and complain that this is way too modern and that it's a sell-out. Well, if this is considered sell-out so be it and please crawl back into your cave and just play the old classics over and over again and stay ignorant. Ignorance is bliss, isn't it? Okay, enough moaning on my part.

Rating: 7 Meh, doesn't retain much of what made two the previous records so good (especially Order...). Pretty bland-ish thrash. Hall doesn't sound nearly as good on this.
