"one of the best bands since alice in chains and soundgarden"
Approximate translation of the review
New participant on the scene of Seattle, AGENTS OF CHAOS is the object of a communiqué extremely élogieux from the journalist Gary Stockton, that declares: " AGENTS OF CHAOS is quite possibly one of the best bands I’ve heard out of the Seattle market since ALICE IN CHAINS and SOUNDGARDEN." … First EP of the troop of Mill Creek, situated village to some encablures of Seattle, Volume One can appear only promising to the unconditional one of the Grunge, and in particular of these two formations, that I am.

By its two first titles, the disc confirms unquestionably the mentioned filiation above. Cold War evolves thus on a climate recalling those prized by the two giants. The opening title, the superb Face Down, presents again more similarities, with in first place a riff sensational one that does to think Dam That River, extracts phenomenal one Dirt ofALICE IN CHAINS. Besides, this beach illustrates influence exercised by the unforgettable one Layne STALEY on the singer Jake McCOY, detectable influence in particular by of frequent growls recalling those of which the defunct frontman had been done a specialty. In a general way, Jake evolves in a register does more engrave than the latter, resulting nevertheless to enticing strong performances, the most spectacular correspondent precisely to the final one of Face Down.

For justified that it is, the parallel with these major actors of the Grunge returns does not totally count personality ofAGENTS OF CHAOS. Each in their kind, Window Pain and One Last Look unveil another facet of the group. The first one constitutes a ballad essentially sustained by the arpeggios in his clear one guitar of Brien DeCHRISTOPHER. As for the second, it borrows from a Heavy Metal classics, by its gimmicks energetic sometimes brightened ones of harmonic ones. At last, one will note the true homage to METALLICA that proposes Damage : the performance of Jake resembles itself there to mistake an interpretation of James HETFIELD, while the solo of Brien could have been signed Kirk HAMMETT.

Driving generally to interesting results, these different influences give place, with Volume One, to an entry in very successful scene for AGENTS OF CHAOS. The group not itself there is besides cheated, that foresees for beginning 2013 the go out of his successor. Envisaged as a long format, it will entitle himself all simply Volume Two.
