The band logo looks Metal, unfortunately the music isn’t. I also haven’t heard about Rockwork Records yet, but I’m no real German Metal fanatic so I don’t really care that much. AGENT seems to be from Cologne, at least the album was recorded there, but there’s no year mentioned on the sleeve and the whole thing looks pretty private. Guess they have been fans of EUROPE and all these Radio Metal bands coz that’s what’s to hear on the record.

Watery semi-epic AORish Hard Rock with dominant keyboards and a more or less german sounding vocalist, who did his job well, but sadly can’t oppress his accent, although I can hear a nasty Ronnie James Dio influence! Judging by their style/sound I’d say the record was recorded ca. 1987-90 and if a song like “Welcome the night” wouldn’t be featured I’d advice you to ignore this one, but that damn little hymn makes the record buyable even though the SURVIVOR “Eye of the tiger” flair is undenyable.

So imagine a heavier “Eye of the tiger” version with Dio singing. Dammit, why aren’t the other tracks sounding like “Welcome the night”???
