July 13, 2015, 3 years ago
Masters Of Metal is the band launched by metal veterans and members of Agent Steel: Juan Garcia (guitars), Bernie Versailles (guitars, vocals), Robert Cardenas (bass, backing vocals) and Rigo Amezcua (drums).
The Los Angeles based four-piece released an independent self-titled EP in 2013 which included four blistering tracks. Recorded by Bill Metoyer (Fates Warning, Trouble, Gwar), and mixed by Bernie Versailles; who, aside from being Agent Steel’s guitarist, also worked behind the board on the band’s Omega Conspiracy (1999) Order Of The illuminati (2003), and Alienigma (2007) albums.
The band entered the studio in 2014 to record their first full-length and just as the album was being finished in October, Versailles sustained a brain injury, winding up in a coma. Since his unfortunate accident he’s been making a miraculous recovery with the help of friends, family and fans. With Bernie unable to complete the album, producer and friend Bill Metoyer completed the album and also tracked the last song “Vengeance & Might” (which features lead vocals by James Rivera (Helstar), along with Helstar guitarist Larry Barragan, and Andrew Atwood.
Masters Of Metal recently signed to the German label Metalville Records for the release of their debut, From Worlds Beyond featuring cover artwork by Gustavo Sazes (Arch Enemy, Angra, Firewind).
Co-founding guitarist Juan Garcia (Agent Steel, EvilDead) who recently returned from a successful European tour with Body Count comments: "The music on this new album captures the integrity, and dedication of the band. I think everyone involved raised the bar on songwriting, performance, execution, and brought their best to the table"
