AGIEL
"DARK PANTHEONS"
DEEP SEND RECORDS

AGIEL is a dark Metal band hailing from Rochester, New York and have been creating
their original and inventive style of Metal since 1997. These guys have gone through some
changes over the years, as most bands do. They started out as a brutal Death Metal band
with heavy Grindcore elements in the mix. They have since turned into a more symphonic
Death / Black Metal band. "DARK PANTHEONS" is a re-imagining of the bands 2002
release "DARK PANTHEONS AGAIN WILL RISE". The band has taken select tracks
from that release and reworked them to suit their new sound and style. This comes after
the band was on hiatus since 2007 and they are back with a new line up and sound. This is
the new
AGIEL for a new generation of Death Metal fans. A lot of the fast paced and
gritty Death Metal elements of the past are still there in their sound, but they have added
some new ingredients of symphonic Black Metal. These new arrangements of their old
songs is amazing. These guys have reinvented the band and have done it so much better.
At times you can hear touches of their Grindcore past poking through, especially in the
faster more aggressive parts. I really liked that these guys have an old school European
Black Metal feel to their music, it's cold, dark, gritty and sounds some what creepy and
demonic like. It reminded me of a lot of the bands coming out of Europe back in the early
'90's. I kept thinking of a lot of the Black Metal bands on
SOUTHERN LORD & DARK
HORIZON RECORDS
or even HELL'S HEADBANGERS RECORDS. These guys
will crush other bands in their genre if they keep pouring out great tracks like this. This
ones for all the old school Black Metal fans out there!!!
