AGENT STEEL circa 2008 united in a dingy rehearsal space in Los Angeles, California in the summer of 1998 with the sole purpose of reviving a truly unique and sonically shattering musical phenomenon born in 1985 with the debut album SKEPTICS APOCALYPSE, and the highly praised follow-up UNSTOPPABLE FORCE. Band members JUAN GARCIA, BERNIE VERSAILLES, CHUCK PROFUS, and newcomer BRUCE HALL who replaced original vocalist JOHN CYRIIS; along with bassist KARLOS MEDINA set out on a musical journey unleashing several critically acclaimed CDs upon metal fans worldwide, while frequently touring Europe, United States, and South America alongside heavyweights from their era such as SLAYER, EXODUS, NUCLEAR ASSAULT, ANVIL, and HELSTAR as well as sharing the stage with notable younger bands SHADOWS FALL, NEVERMORE, and DIMMU BORGIR, among many others.

 

In 1999 AGENT STEEL was invited to perform at WACKEN OPEN AIR FESTIVAL and released the stellar comeback OMEGA CONSPIRACY. After touring to support the OMEGA release, the band returned home to write what would become ORDER OF THE ILLUMINATI.   During the course of the writing sessions, CHUCK PROFUS suffered medical issues forcing his resignation and in stepped drummer extraordinaire, RIGO AMEZCUA, to record 2003’s universally acclaimed masterpiece ORDER OF THE ILLUMINATI. Years of live shows and festivals ensued including a live and raw video shoot of their performance at The Netherlands prestigious and long-running DYNAMO OPEN AIR, which was later released on DVD.

 

AGENT STEEL returned to the studio to write and record 2007’s heralded ALIENIGMA, a testament to heaviness, power and ferocity.   Delivered to Europe in September of 2007 via MASCOT RECORDS, ALIENIGMA serves as proof that AGENT STEEL does not stand still desperately recreating the past but rather marches forward as an army hungry for new blood and conquest.   More touring is in the works while the band begins the creation of their next slaughtering opus, sure to set ears ablaze the world over.   Wake and rise up with a message too powerful for the meek and too sincere to be anything but absolute metal. Welcome to the new world order of AGENT STEEL.
