Back in the eighties, Agent Steel was seen by a lot of people as ‘the next big thing’, which they might have just become if it wasn't for some strange decisions made by their strange singer John Cyriis. However, ‘Iron Maiden on speed’, a term which I believe UK's Metal Forces introduced for these guys, made two stellar Metal albums and a good EP in the eighties, but after the second one ('Unstoppable Force', 1986), John Cyriis moved to Florida with the band (according to himself because he wanted to live closer to the Bermuda Triangle), where the band died away silently. The year is 1998, drummer and founding member Chuck Profus and long time guitarist Juan Garcia are playing in a band together and suddenly come up with the idea to start up Agent Steel again. Guitar god Bernie Versailles was contacted and wanted to do it, as was bassist Mike Zaputil, but John Cyriis was unfindable at the time. A replacement was found in Bruce Hall, who played in Sybil with Bernie Versailles. 'Omega Conspiracy', the first album of the reunited Agent Steel and from the first notes of the awesome opener 'Destroy The Hush' until the last notes of 'It's Not What You Think' fade away, the album seems to be one of the most complete metal albums ever to be released. Most old school fans probably miss the wailing vocals of John Cyriis (Bruce Hall does the vocals a little lower), but for you who can see beyond that will find an amazing album. 'Omega Conspiracy' was the first proof that Agent Steel knows how to represent Heavy Metal in the 21st century. Track listing: 1. Destroy The Hush 2. Illuminati Is Machine 3. Fighting Backwards 4. New Godz 5. Know Your Master 6. Infinity 7. Awaken The Swarm 8. Into The Nowhere 9. Bleed Forever 10. It's Not What You Think
