Formed in the 90’s as a non-stereotypical thrash act, Agro added new life, combined with aggression and constant entertainment to a Rock / Metal scene that had become saturated by Florida-style Death Metal clones.


Through the years AGRO have undergone some major changes in the band. Professionally and musically they have evolved and overcome some of these hurdles & other obstacles which the local entertainment scene has thrown at them. 

AGRO now make use of a more traditional Heavy Metal approach with a powerful twin-guitar attack and the use of strings (violin) and harmonic keyboards resulting in melodic Power / Thrash Metal with aggressive yet audible vocals which add depth and originality.


AGRO forge ahead in true Heavy Metal spirit with a string of live performances that offer the crowd a show of true professional musicianship combined with a hedonistic, larger than life, tongue-in-cheek attitude - fuelled by beer and a true Rock n’ Roll party spirit.

They have eight full-length albums under their belt, one international album release (“Ritual 6”), European excursions together with an appearance at the Wacken Open Air festival, several African tours, countless South African shows from small pubs to headlining major festivals and more.


These seasoned musicians have played alongside some of the world’s greatest Rock and Metal acts locally and abroad (including Blind Guardian, Nocturnal Rites, Deity’s Muse, Ensiferum, Fokofpolisiekar and Becoming The Archetype), showing that they have the ability to enthrall not only the Heavy Metal enthusiasts but they have also gained fans from across all musical tastes.


AGRO are able to break down musical and cultural divides and are true entertainers in every sense.

This is evident in their professionalism on and off stage.


With the release of their 8th album, “The Bitter End” in 2020, these ‘Godfathers of South African Heavy Metal’ continue their quest to bring their brand of Heavy Metal to all four corners of the globe.
