THE AGONY SCENE
THE DARKEST RED
The Agony Scene’s sophomore effort is a savage, soul crushing slab of metalcore with dashes of devious death metal strewn in, as this Oklahoma quintet pull out all the stops to sonically beat the hell out of you. From the jackhammer drums that rip through your speakers on the title cut to the blistering Swedish metal guitars found on “Screams Turn to Silence” to the sinewy rhythm and venomous vocal hiss of “Scapegoat”, this relentless 11-track affair is as close to a metalcore classic as you can get today. Brazen with as much brutality as they are memorable hooks, THE DARKEST RED’s multitude of strengths make this album a definite purchase for fans currently wearing out their Killswitch and Unearth discs.
