AGENT STEEL BAND IN THE 1980S

One of The Many Great Bands To Come Out On Combat That Remained Should Have Been Bigger

Unstoppable Force is the second album from the US speed metal band Agent Steel. It was recorded at Morrisound Recording Studios in Tampa, Florida from March – June 1986, and was digitally mastered in July 1986 at Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida. The album was released by Combat Records in March 1987. The 1999 reissue by Century Media Records contains the Mad Locust Rising EP, which some later reissues excludes the cover version of the Judas Priest song “The Ripper”. It was the last album before the band split up in 1988, only to reform in 1998 without John Cyriis and his consent, for the release of the 1999 album Omega Conspiracy.
