Agents of Man - Rocking the stage as if their lives depend on it
Agents of Man has been around for quite some years and after getting signed to Century Media, my hopes became reality: the band would tour the European mainland. They did a tour, got dropped by Century Media and now they're back with a DIY tour. Me and Maurits went to Arnhem to check them out.
 
There were five support acts LBC, Morning Red, Crackjaw, Bloodshot and Angel Crew but we either missed them or saw only parts. So no review of them. We did spend some time talking to Riccardo from Crackjaw outside, which was fun and made me check out their music online. Next time I’ll be there because they rock! So Agents of Man played for a warmed-up crowd. As they’ve only released one EP and one full-length they pretty much played everything I know of them. Of course 'Headless (In A Temple)' was one of the highlights. Furthermore songs like 'Death Of Me' were played flawless. 

The guys were rocking the stage as if they were playing in a stadium. What an energy! Guitarist Zack plays really focused. It seems like he is responsible for the technical stuff. Ex-Sworn Enemy bassist Mike has an almost frightening stage presence, really powerful. Agents of Man is a band that’s used to the US hardcore-scene. It seems that in the hardcore scene the amount of appreciation can be measured by the amount of people dancing in the pit. And during Agents of Man not a whole lot of people were dancing. The band kept on asking for more people to dance. But I, and probably a whole lot of people with me, preferred watching the band without dancing, just enjoying the show. The band wrapped it up with ‘Hybrid Moments’ from The Misfits as an encore. Next time, I would like to see this band in an other setting though. Maybe with a less hardcore, but more metal minded audience, in a bigger venue. That would definitely do Agents of Man right.
