Editorial Reviews

Cut from the same cloth as their labelmates Chimaira and Trivium, The Agony Scene have created some very solid, powerful music that is compelling to listen to while not boring anywhere through it. Over the course of these 11 songs, you get the feeling that this band is as influenced not only by today's bands metalcore community, but also some black metal or extreme stuff. Vocalist Michael Williams is somewhat of a hybrid cross between Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth and whoever the shrieker is in 3 Inches Of Blood. He shrieks like a wounded animal throughout most of the record, although he does come down into a clean vocal on songs like "Screams Turn To Silence". Roadrunner. 2005.

Customer Reviews

Their are some pretty sweet clean vocals during a few of the choruses, which is new for AS.

Already releasing amazing albums by Trivium and Still Remains, RR brings you The Agony Scene's label debut, The Darkest Red.
Chris Conlan (BreakingCustom.com)
There are so many things that are great about it, but it's so hard to describe-- you should just go out and buy it.

If you didn't already know by there first album, The Agony Scene's sophomore release, "The Darkest Red," makes it pretty apparent that this is not just another metalcore band. The guitarists are clearly (at least partially) influenced by thrash, because they play non-stop fiery riffs which wouldn't be out of place on a modern Slayer or Lamb of God album. The guitars and drums interlock to make a typically very catchy rhythm section which occasionally grooves (as in track four), and always shreds the listener's speakers. The music on here doesn't offer anything strictly new to metalcore, but Mike's vocals make this Oklahoma quintet stand out from the rest of the pack. His greasy/grimy, snarly, retching vocals sometimes sound kind of like Dave Mustaine (like during the beginning of the title track), but they usually echo Kreator more than anything. There is some relief; "Screams Turn Into Silence" has clean backing vocals, but it's the only song on here to have melody of any kind. Track two, "Darkest Red," has fast double bass work and chugging guitars, "Procession" has a catchy, punching, stop-start rhythm, and "Scars of Your Disease" and "Suffer" are explosive, with pounding, almost thunderous rhythms. But the album's lead single, "Prey," is my personal favorite. It begins with a walloping, machine gun snare drum attack, but then the thrashy, groove-y guitars kick in, and the song just sounds downright awesome. "The Darkest Red" is a very enjoyable listen, it sounds pretty darn great, and this band has cemented itself has more than just another metalcore band. So, if you haven't already checked them out, definitely put The Agony Scene on your to-do list.

When I first found out about the Agony Scene about a year and half ago, I thought they were pretty good...I got their self-titled debut, and found while it had a LOT of potential, it was too repetitive to really hold my attention for longer than a few weeks.

On THIS album, however, The Agony Scene have shown a lot of artistic growth even through a few lineup changes, (I believe only three members from the original five are still in it on this one. I might be wrong, though) and I think The Darkest Red is certainly a step up from their debut album.

Dont be fooled by all of the reviews that say The Agony Scene has somehow gone "pop" or "trendy" or anything like that; There's only actual singing in about 4 songs and it's not for that long anyway. The brutal, heavy sound that you heard on their first CD is still there, don't worry. With songs like "Suffer" and "Scars Of Your Disease", it's pretty clear that the Agony Scene have not just turned their sound completely in the mainstream direction like some people have dismissed them as doing.

As I always do in my reviews, here's a track-by-track commentary:

(1) PRELUDE- There's not really much to say about this thing. It's just a bunch of noise for about a minute and twenty seconds. Complete waste of space.

--/10

(2) THE DARKEST RED- Not the best song to choose to start out the album, but it's alright. You can really tell the production has gotten much slicker at Roadrunner than from Solid State. Don't get me wrong, it's Agony Scene, which automatically makes it good, but it's not the strongest track of the CD.

6/10

(3) SCARS OF YOUR DISEASE- Ahh, this is good stuff right here. It's sort of a blend of their newer sound and thier older one.

This album defies the metal scene today. Not only is it fast paced, but the guitars are searing, the vocals are wicked, the drum pedals are galloping, and the rythms are fired up. Its as if you are mixing early days In Flames with Trivium(one of the best new metal bands out there)
Heres the play by play:
1-Prelude - Normal prelude but leads into first song perfectly with a quickening pace that turns into the heavy guitars in song 2.
2-The Darkest Red - One of the best metal tunes in a while. Fast guitar rythms, drums, and the vocals sound as evil as the lyrics.
3-Scars of Your Disease - Leads in with wicked guitar then it all comes together just as vocalist Michael Williams comes in screaming as if he was in agony. Another standout track because of the chorus
4-Screams Turn To Silence - Fast paced guitar and sound with an unusual but extremely fitting chorus that is sung, not screamed, which is not out of place at all.
5-Sacrifice - A heavy, ripping track that mixes the brutality and raw emotion the band posesses.
6-Prey - A furious track that spins from the drums at the beginning of the track to the awesome guitar and vocal work done throughout the duration of this songs(although his voice sounds very Mudvayne-ish during the chorus)
7-Procession - Starts out with unreal chugging guitar work then is entwined with background guitar and vocals. Pure metal brilliance!
8-Suffer - Begins with a fast paced rythms that develops into full blown metal chaos that is beautifully transforms into a skull crushing track that will leave you gasping for air.
9-My Dark Desire - Wow......I am absolutely amazed at this band's abilities to put together a song.
