The relationship between legendary US speed-metallers Agent Steel and falsetto-god John Cyriis is most certainly rather ‘complicated’. Cyriis, a forming member of the band, returned to the fold (after 23 years) for 2010’s Thrash Domination Festival in Tokyo, only to leave the band again before the Keep in True Festival seven months later, where he was replaced by Rick Mythiasin as the band performed as ‘Master of Metal’ . As a ‘teaser’ for the KIT show, the band recorded a demo track with Mythiasin, giving the impression that they planned with the singer long-term.
The Sweden Rock Festival, which took place earlier this month, was earlier reported to be Cyriis’ last performance with Agent Steel; a claim which the singer denied on-stage at the fest.
The set-list of the show was as follows:
01. The Day At Guyana
02. Unstoppable Force
03. Never Surrender
05. Children Of The Sun
07. Mad Locust Rising
08. Nothin’ Left
09. Agents Of Steel
10. Bleed For The Godz
11. Guilty As Charged

Before his return to the band, Cyriis had seemingly disappeared for a good two decades, leading to fans to start a facebook group in an attempt to find the singer.
