Battle Helm Rating

THE AGONY SCENE is one of those names that I am familiar with but haven’t really heard a single not from. Having broken up and reformed several times since its original formation back in 2000 this new album is the follow up to 2007’s “Get Damned”. As I haven’t heard the band before I have no idea what they sounded like before, but this new album is full of testosterone. This is one angry sounding album. There is a distinct feel of metalcore over this but it is way more metallic than the usual metalcore. I don’t really know what to compare this to other than a jack hammer going on like there is no tomorrow. There is a relentless attack to this that wears you out (in a good way) to such a degree that you feel totally exhausted at the end of the album. Anders Ekdahl
