Agressor – Say Your Prayers (1996)

with one comment

Here’s a good one from the vaults that most metalheads probably haven’t heard…but should.  Agressor was a NY band agressorthat apparently had been around since the 1980s but really only got decent recognition when their debut full length album, Say Your Prayers, was released in 1996.  Kelz turned me on to these guys on a compilation tape that he had made for me.  After hearing it I immediately called Sentinel Steel Records and ordered it from Denis.

The best description is to call these guys a poor man’s Overkill because the singer could fill in for Blitz and I doubt anyone would notice the difference.  Say Your Prayers certainly has a feel of Overkill’s Feel the Fire and Taking Over, but of course not quite as good…and a decade late.  That being said I have always loved this CD.

These guys apparently changed their name to Magus Beast in 2002 and I don’t think they ever released anything else.

If you dig Overkill’s early sound, then certainly download this and you won’t be disappointed.

  1. I saw these guys as Magus Beast opening for Joey Belladonna a few years ago. They were solid. Kind of like a cross between early Metal Church and early Overkill.
