Agressor, and its many spelling varieties, must be the most popular band
in metal history. While the band began its thrashing with some
underground momentum in Antibes circa 1986, the inertia of the genre and
the band's inability to raise its sound beyond standard slowly killed
the band. The band finally connects with Boss of Black Mark at the Midem
expo in Cannes in 1989. Once the pride of French thrash metal scene
along bands like Massacra and Loudblast (with whom a split LP was
releases), Agressor never really went anywhere. Barney of Napalm Death
guests on the track After World Obliteration off Symposium Of Rebirth.
In 1999 the band is back and plays with the likes of Loudblast and
Bloodthorn and signs to Season Of Mist. Alex also moonlights as
guitarist with Bloodthorn on its Red Stream debut.
