The Agony Scene - Get Damned

Having more ex-members than Hatebreed, this sad excuse for a "metalcore" band (for a while atleast) didn't know when to give up the ghost and call it a day. Sporting only three releases on four different labels, these guys never seemed to find where they fit in and with good reason. They only seem to be a cut-n-paste, groove here, chugga here mediorce metalcore group who, although from time to time I found myself bobbing my head to a riff here or there, I almost fell asleep from the repetitious drivel. Plus, their singer sounds like he's gargling glass and shitting razor blades at the same time.

Their first release, "The Agony Scene", was released on the (basically) christian label Solid State Records and for all purposes DIDN'T suck. With this release, they purposefully tried to "sound evil" and came off more like some pissed high-schooler trying way too hard to be cool. Don't get me wrong, it's a bit toe-tapping from time to time. But, as a whole this just reminds me of 99% of the other "metalcore" bands and doesn't even try to stand out in a crowd.

Now, thankfully this review has a happy ending. The Agony Scene has been defunct for a few years and I doubt there will ever be a great demand for a reunion tour. If you like beat-your-fist-and-your-head-against-a-wall while waiting for the mall mosh to start, check this out. If you like music, please pass the dutchie on the left hand side.
