THE AGONY SCENE
THE AGONY SCENE
SOLID STATE

The Agony Scene's brand of metal bridges the gap between Euro thrash and American power on its 10-track debut. This Tulsa, OK based quintet's damaging debut displays disparaging dynamics and a slew of death metal's meat and potatoes, yet behind the cymbal crashes and tortured vocals lie a bed of melodic metal that gives operatic metal masters Cradle of Filth a run for its filthy lucre. Having as much in common with Killswitch Engage (whose very own Adam Dutkiewicz twiddled the knobs) as it does Darkest Hour, The Agony Scene's majestic crunch and chugging grooves (just check out "Lines of Suicide" for a neckbreaker of a good time) are the stuff that metalheads will rejoice over.
