MASTERS OF METAL is the new band formed by current members of AGENT STEEL: Juan Garcia (guitars), Bernie Versailles (guitars and lead vocals), Robert Cardenas (bass and backing vocals), Rigo Amezcua (drums). The Los Angeles-based group had been working on new the material for sometime and recently decided to move forward and complete the recordings with Bernie Versailles taking over the vocal duties. This has been a blessing in disguise as MASTERS OF METAL not only have maintained their dedicated fan base playing successful live shows in recent months to great overwhelming receptions, but the legendary members have gained even more followers in support of their new path.

MASTERS OF METAL has just released its debut EP in North America via iTunes. Physical copies can be obtained through The Omega Order online store. Recorded by Bill Metoyer (FATES WARNING, TROUBLE, GWAR) and mixed by Versailles, the EP contains four blistering songs with everything that you can expect from the members of AGENT STEEL: top-notch overtones, timeless songwriting, and lots of scorching guitars, bottom end, and precision drumming. The track "Lunacy" features guest lead vocals by James Rivera (HELSTAR), and Sean Peck (CAGE, DEATH DEALER).

A promotional video for the song "Chameleon" can be seen below.
