Bio:

Founded in 1986, AGRESSOR is know as the pioneer band of French Thrash / Death Metal who influenced many others in France and elsewhere.The same year the band recorded its first demo, "The Merciless Onslaught" which received a warm welcome in the underground metal scene and lauched directly the band internationally.In 1987 came "Satan Sodomy", the second demo with the cover caused a sensation because it is heavily tinged with sex and Black Metal.Agressor begins concerts in France and Switzerland including Messiah, Samael, Sodom and Living Death.With the Split LP "Licensed to Thrash", alongside Loudblast, AGRESSOR released in 1988, the first French Thrash Metal Record.First French band ever to be signed on an international label after recording the demo "Orbital Distortion" in 1989, Agressor, a few months after the fall of the Berlin Wall, recorded "Neverending Destiny" at the Skytrak studio, produced by the Bathory producer and released by Noise Records. This album is required at the time as relatively innovative given the content of certain texts (Sci-Fi oriented when fashion is the occult and gore), but by his artwork signed by the famous designer of the 70’s Philippe Druillet ("The Adventures of Lone Sloane," "The Night"). The album received a warm international welcome with its mix quite original (for that time) of brutal Thrash and Death "technical" (the kind did not exist yet), which lead them to the front of the Metal scene.Two years later, when it was released in 1992, "Towards Beyond" is indeed a huge stir. Recorded in Sweden at Montezuma Studio produced by The Boss himself (Bathory) and released on Black Mark Prod., Medieval music and blend it quite technical Death, Thrash riffs and ultra-heavy passages with a cavernous sound, the album 's immediately imposes as one of the best Death Metal surprises of a vintage year 1992, however strong, but also as the best album released by a French band that year.Agressor side of Split LP "Licensed to Thrash" was reissued in 1993 by Black Mark Prod. to MCD under the name "Satan Sodomy."With Symposium of Rebirth "in 1994,continues to follow Agressor their style while remaining true to their roots while exploring new ground with the Choir of the Opéra de Lyon, which have been engaged for the recording and with the participation of Barney Greenway Napalm Death vocalist on a Terrorizer cover. The album alternates with medieval acoustic tracks of pure brutality Death, opera choruses on blast-beats, music taken from the movie "Conan the Barbarian" and a hallucinating technical skill at the time.The band connects tours and concerts with bands such as Sinister, Wargasm, Morbid Angel, Obituary, Pestilence and Biohazard,After their UK tour with Cradle Of Filth in June 96, Alex began working for Black Mark Prod and became guitarist for Ibanez.Because of all these activities, Agressor come back in 2000 with "Medieval Rites", recorded with the participation of many different musicians: a flutist, a violinist, a trombonist, an opera singer, plus other personalities the metal scene: Krell and Christina (Bloodthorn), Morten Nielsen (former drummer of Mercyful Fate), Kai Hahto (Rotten Sound, Enochian Crescent).Will follow a tour with Bloodthorn, ... and Oceans and the MCD "The Spirit of Evil" also contains a range rom with two videos recorded in Marseille in 2000 during a concert Mayhem and featuring James Murphy of Testament / Death / Obituary ...In January 2002, the band organized a birthday gig at the Midem of Cannes with a video released in 2006 on a DVD with the album "Deathreat" out on Season of Mist. It aims to offer the most brutal and faster than the band ever recorded reconnecting with its roots in extreme after more than 20 year career.Alex, the leader, played in bands such as Loudblast, Anorexia Nervosa, Bloodthorn E-Force (ex-Voivod), is particularly sponsored by Ibanez, and is involved in the famous Music Academy Int. of Nancy.Joel has reformed his Thrash band: Outburst in which he plays the guitar.Romain has played in many bands such as: Belef, Imperial Sodomy, Disavoued and Necrophagist.Pierrick, plays in Phazm on guitar and vocals and Scarve where he was singer. It was Ibanez endorsement after coming out first of the final exams of Music Academy Int.With their merger Death-Thrash Metal tinged Black Metal AGRESSOR has a reputation for innovative and original band.

Album:

The years 1986-1990 were a time of rapid evolution in the world of extreme metal. Terms such as "speed metal" and "thrash" just simply weren't sufficient adjectives to describe the ever-widening realm of diversity within the worldwide metal, hardcore punk, crossover underground. One of the terms which became quite fashionable in zines during this time was "death-thrash". This term made perfect sense at the time as thrash and speed metal bands were growing increasingly technical, often more aggressive vocally and brutal lyrically, and much faster. These characteristics eventually would help coalesce to form the subgenre which would become known as death metal.But in 1990, there were piles of bands who began in the mid-80's as thrashers but continued to perfect their craft, increase the speed, and generally push the boundaries of thrash metal to the limits of sanity, while not quite fitting into the newly minted "death metal" category. Certainly one can argue that bands like France's Agressor and Massacra, Holland's Dead Head, Germany's Protector, Assassin, Minotaur, and Poison (to name a few), Italy's Necrodeath and Schizo, Sweden's Merciless, Canada's Dissection and Soothsayer, Insanity and Desecration (both from San Francisco), Incubus's-"Serpent Temptation", and a whole pile of often hugely under-rated and untamed South American bands (especially from Brazil and Chile), are indeed early death metal or proto-black metal, or whatever, but in my opinion the category death-thrash captures the aura of these bands in the most direct and historically accurate manner.Now to Agressor...Unfortunately, many well-meaning but under-informed metal fans (often from the USA) have either chuckled at the idea of French heavy metal or simply ignored it. However, as a nation France has contributed superb bands of nearly every style of hard rock and heavy metal from the late-70's to the present. By the mid 80's France was developing quite a tightly-knit scene of speed metal thrashers looking to take the intensity up a few notches...Three bands in particular were instrumental in building France's death-thrash scene. First off was Massacra, whose incredible '86-'89 demo tapes were instrumental in securing an audience for intense French metal. The two other bands, Agressor and Loudblast would beat Massacra to the vinyl punch when their seminal split LP titled "Licensed To Thrash" was released in 1988 by New Wave Records. A truly brilliant split LP, "Licensed To Thrash" set the stage for the French death thrash explosion of 1990.It had been nearly two years since Agressor had tore up their side of the "Licensed To Thrash" split LP with Loudblast, and while Agressor's tracks on the split LP were fantastic and the production surprisingly competent, it was hard not to be curious what Agressor's debut full-length LP "Neverending Destiny" (with a release date of early 1990 on the god-like label Noise Records) would sound like. Following a short mood-inducing synth intro, the first track "Paralytic Disease" comes tearing from the stereo like a wall of precision-guided-missile-guitar riffage and quick-picking, topped off by very gruff spitfire vocals (in the style of bands like Protector), all being driven by some of the tightest, fastest, rollercoaster tempo changing drumming ever committed to vinyl. The production is simply flawless with the separation between instruments perfectly balanced against the needs of the combined mix of all the sounds. Every note, drum beat, vocal, bass run, whammy-bar harmonic, is perfectly audible yet it is the collective effect of all these elements which makes the full, overall mix so powerful. This is easily one of the most well-produced extreme metal albums ever. An album which successfully does not sacrifice power for clarity or vice versa.Throughout the ten tracks which make up "Neverending Destiny" (one of which appeared on the split LP with Loudblast two years earlier in a more primitive version) there is not a single moment of let up. This is the definition of raging death-thrash. But what makes the album so special is that it never gets dull or boring like some extreme metal has a tendency to do after 30 minutes of unbridled insanity. The songwriting is top-notch! The riffs are often very memorable and the songs despite their technical nature still utilize the verse-chorus structure to great effect keeping the listener's attention throughout. Also, tempo changes abound (the drumming on this album is simply outstanding, without the triggered robotic drums which permeate so much of today's high speed drumming). Lyrically the LP is quite diverse with mind-bending, futuristic, dystopian sci-fi tracks mixed with more conventional thrash lyrical topics such as human frailty, evil occult forces, and the violence of mankind. The cover art fits in with the sci-fi bend featuring a very strange cyborg-like craft prowling space (with evil intent) seemingly in search of Earth. While not artwork for the ages (like Massacra's early LP cover art) it is still quite well executed and fits the vibe and lyrics contained within very well.In conclusion, "Neverending Destiny" is absolutely essential death thrash! The only LPs which equal its quality and intensity are fellow Frenchmen Massacra's "Enjoy The Violence" LP, Protector's "Misanthropy" Mini-LP and "Golem" LP, and Merciless-"The Awakening". What I enjoy most however about Agressor's "Neverending Destiny" and the death-thrash era, is the exuberance of the bands. They had begun as teens emulating Slayer, Venom, Voivod, Hellhammer, et al, and ended up creating a sound of unparalleled intensity mixed with flawless musicianship. For a brief, shining moment in time before the 90's deconstructed heavy metal into its now countless subgenres, death-thrashers like Agressor ruled the extreme metal world . The "death-thrash" bands influenced everything from technical death metal, grindcore, blast beat black metal, Aussie black thrash, all types of crossover and recent retro high-speed thrash. Yet sadly, many of these tremendous late-80's bands have been forgotten by all but those few with true Satan's speed in their veins. Hell, "Neverending Destiny" has never even been reissued by Noise. But it ain't all bad...all the early Massacra LPs have gotten the full reissue treatment. Hopefully it'll be Agressor's turn next!
