Quick LOA history lesson: Life of Agony (from Brooklyn) made some of the best hardcore/rock/heavy albums ever (in my opinion of course). Their singer Keith Caputo has an awesome voice. They broke up, did separate things including a solo career by Keith, and then reunited for two shows at Irving Plaza in 2003. June 2005: They're playing three special small shows in this area (CBGB tonight!) to celebrate the release of their new album (their first new material in a zillion years). Their new album has a major label K*Rocky (NY rock radio station) nu-metal overproduced sort of sound now which sux, but I can't help but still be happy to have LOA again.
Vampire Magazine says...
"It takes some time to fully grasp the beauty of "Broken Valley", but once you have grasped it, this gem keeps on growing and growing. "Broken Valley" is hard on its way to become my second favourite Life of Agony record, with, naturally, "River Runs Red" on number one."
