Thanks to Ozman I have seen this video for the first time. This is the old Agent Steel with the amazing singer John Cyriis (the best in the metal scène to me). It is so beautiful I made a topic about it...

Agent Steel is a band that deserves much more respect after 4 superb albums...

For the last few weeks I'm trying to get into Agent Steel. I've only heard some material from the "post 1999-revival" era so far, but I definitely want to hear some old Agent Steel too. From what I heard so far, I can say they're very catchy, very fast and have some killer riffs.

And about John Cyriis, what a voice! One of the best high pitched vocalists I've heard

So I ended up downloading a full discography of Agent Steel. I listened to "Skeptics Apocalypse" all day, and it keeps blowing me away. Amazing Speed Metal band, truely amazing!! I don't really understand why MetalStorm doesn't label them as "Speed" but only "Thrash"... Anyway, MASTERS OF METAL, AGENTS OF STEEL!!!!

@ VenoM_BM : those video's and particularly that live video of Exodus are awe-some, thankyou!

@ Thryce: You're welcome! If you can get their DVD although a bootleg it's great, I also recomend the Helstar & Jag Panzer ones!

About Agent Steel and that video: I showed it to a friend that is really a big fan and he went out of his mind, now I'm trying to get it on my pc (there must be a way to download youtube videos).

With my new Super Saiyan Staff powers I improved and specified Agent Steel's genre on MS.
Since "Speed Metal" isn't an independant category on MS, I labeled Agent Steel as Speed Thrash Metal. I hope I can satisfy everyone a bit with that (although I do am aware there's a difference between the two genres)...

I don't think it's so much that they're overrated, as much as it is that not enough people listen to them, if that makes sense. Everyone who's ever listened to Agent Steel has become a fan within ten seconds or less, it's a scientific fact.

Oh, holy crap. I just read the posts on the video thread. Whatever. Sweet video, thanks for the link!

Two updates from the band in 2009:

Friday, February 06, 2009

It's been a while since we posted news; Here's a quick update: We've been writing and rehearsing for a few months now, and we've created Five brand new AGENT STEEL songs!! No official titles just yet! working titles are: "Metallica" "Black Sabbath song" "Yesterday" "Old School" "New Song" (these are our working titles until Bruce comes up with the final lyrics). We want to write another five songs then we'll go into the recording studio to track. We plan on doing a Los Angeles show in the coming months to test out the new material live and get some feedback on the new tunes (possibly before April or May '09). We're planning on returning to Europe for seIective shows and 1 or 2 festival appearances, so we will keep you posted on developments.

Tuesday, April 07, 2009

Greetings!!! a quick update: Bernie arrived in town yesterday and we all got together at our rehearsal space in downtown Los Angeles and grinded an all day writing marathon and came up with two brand new songs! Epic Metal journey riffs and arrangements at its finest....Mr. Versailles delivered some great new ideas to add to what we've been working on thus far; making the new number of AGENT STEEL songs for our upcoming album at approximately nine. We plan on writing 2 more songs before we demo and start the recording the new untitled record.

P.S. So is this the official Agent Steel thread?

AGENT STEEL Rejoined By Original Singer JOHN CYRIIS - May 3, 2010

Long-running California metallers AGENT STEEL have issued the following update:

"As some of you may or may not have already heard the news that AGENT STEEL has parted ways with vocalist Bruce Hall. We as a band would like to acknowledge the accomplishments together with Bruce and the three solid metal offerings; 'Omega Conspiracy', 'Order Of The Illuminati' and 'Alienigma'. Together we had the fortune of touring and sharing the stage in some amazing places and visited some breathtaking countries. Bruce dedicated over a decade to AGENT STEEL and for this he should be recognized, and we part on good terms.

"We as a band still have the fire and passion to deliver the metal goods to fans from the past, present and future.

"We had been writing new material for the next chapter of AGENT STEEL and after the news got out that we separated from Bruce, we were contacted by original singer, John Cyriis. Call it destiny; call it what you will, but now the communicative channel is open between AGENT STEEL and vocalist Cyriis; we are in talks about an imminent AGENT STEEL reunion tour possibly involving summer/fall 2010 appearances and an extensive '2011' metal blitz.

"Honestly, we do not know how long this reunion will last; however this could be the long-awaited destiny of AGENT STEEL originally interrupted, so long as everything moves forward in an evolving good working climate.

"Our objective regarding this AGENT STEEL reunion is attached with the intentions of providing the opportunity to not only the dedicated fans, but also to a whole new generation of metal fans the chance to see AGENT STEEL live on stage with Cyriis; the original voice on the classic 'Skeptics Apocalypse', 'Unstoppable Force' and 'Mad Locust Rising' releases.

"The legacy continues...stay tuned."
