From the label that gave us Trust Company,DCide records have now found this 5-piece Baltimore based band AGENTS OF THE SUN that in a brilliant way mixes *in your face* rock with splendid harmonized vocals and it?s the vocals that makes this band so special, just like other bands of the same fine art as King?s X,Saigon Kick and Trust Company. This is a 3 song sampler with songs taken from the upcoming album "Aurora" that will be out Oct.7th and if you think 40% classic hard rock,40% numetal with 20% sing along choruses on top is a perfect combination-you just have to write down this band?s name because Agents of the sun is one of the most promising new bands around I?ve heard for a long time. Imagine if Seal would have gone rocking real hard with his genius melodies and you?ll have track 3 on this sampler "Fear of heights",very beautiful arranged and well sung with lots of harmonies as I said before.
I go backwards here and take track no:2 which is the most radio oriented song out of these,"Agents" as it?s called is more uptempo than the last track and has a nice *get up and dance* groove plus the nuance between the calm verse and the King?s X driven riff rock chorus is just lovely. But the best song is opening track "Sincerely yours",it was this song that made me get in contact with the band....pure majestic numetal or high classy tough modern rock is what I would like to call that rocker. With Mike McAree(SR 71) as one of the producers involved here,you know this band has something to offer you and I stand up to give these guys a standing ovation.
