Koen B. : Trouble Agency is a Belgian thrash metal band that exists since 1993. After two demo’s (‘Alone’ and ‘Angry’) the first EP ‘Bite Into Life’ (2002) saw the light of day. The first full-length ‘Moneycracy’ followed in 2006. ‘The Last Shot’ (demo, 2013) was the last sign of life thus far but now the Brussels band self-releases their second full-length ‘Suspected’. For ordering information, check Trouble Agency’s official website where it’s available for only ten Euro’s…. and it’s worth every penny.
Of course, Belgium has spit forth a fine dose of great speed and thrash metal bands in the past and present (Cyclone, Channel Zero, Dead Serious, After All, Evil Invaders, Prematory, Warckon, Acid, Decadence to name only a few) and Trouble Agency fits this list without any doubt. If you might associate Trouble Agency to aforementioned bands, Channel Zero and After All are the ones that are most comparable to them: qualitatively high standard thrash metal with great vocals and a neat production. This has become a killer album that might catapult the band’s career instantly.
