Life of Agony are an Alternative Metal act from Brooklyn, New York City, USA formed in 1989 with the lineup of vocalist Keith Caputo, Guitarist Joey Z, drummer Sal Abruscato, and bassist Alan Robert.

They released their debut album River Runs Red in 1993 and it's followup Ugly in 1995 in which . Abruscato left the band shortly after the tour supporting Ugly and was replaced by ex Pro-Pain drummer Dan Richardson. Caputo left the band in 1997 after the release of Soul Searching Sun, claiming his heart was no longer in the band's music and they disbanded in 1999 after a failed stint with former Ugly Kid Joe singer Whitfield Crane.

Life of Agony reunited in 2002 after the original lineup performed a couple of soldout shows in New York City and released the studio album Broken Valley in 2005. Since then, the members

LIFE OF AGONY Broken Valley

Album · 2005 · Alternative Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
pointandclick
Easily the worst LOA album. In terms of lyricism, it has far more substance than the terrible post-grunge music that was rampant during 2005, but at times the vocals and instrumentation are clearly mimicking it. I can only assume this was due to the creative influence of their new record label Epic, aka the most mainstream, cookie-cutter record label in existence. The real disappointing aspect though is that nothing about this album is aggressive at all. The riffs and vocals are just too restrained for my liking. Most of the ballad type songs are pretty boring too, with maybe one or two exceptions.

LIFE OF AGONY River Runs Red

River Runs Red is the cult-classic debut full-length studio album by the underrated, unique New York band Life Of Agony. It was produced by Josh Silver and released in 1993 through Roadrunner Records.

The album is a concept album which tells the story of a confused and disillusioned young man with low self-worth and a poor support network, who ultimately decides to commit suicide. Its pretty grim, dark, weighty stuff. The story really sucks you in, and you find yourself hoping its not going to end in tragedy.

Musically, this album is a pretty interesting hybrid. There’s touches of Thrash Metal, Doom Metal, NY Hardcore and a big Type-O Negative influence at the same time. At times its almost sort of like Sick Of It All doing a St Vitus cover song, with Pete Steele on vocals. Not really, but that’s a ballpark idea of what to expect.

The whole thing is chocked full of pummeling double-kicks and gang vocals, big fat dirty riffs, inventive drumming, really unique and interesting vocal performances and bucketloads of catchy hooks.

Album highlights include the speedy Title Track, the absolutely crushing opener “This Time” and the bitter introspective “Bad Seed.” If you wonder whether the album is for you or not, check out those three! That said, the whole album is rock solid, consistent from start to finish, and there’s no messing with tracks like “These Eyes” or “Method Of Groove” either. The only thing you’ll find yourself skipping are the three additional atmospheric tracks (each named after a day of the week) that provide the story but aren’t songs. Awesome for when you sit down and listen to it as a story, but missable if you just want to be bludgeoned by heavy music.

Overall; this album is an absolute monster. Relentlessly catchy, full of crushing riffs, a dynamic mix of speed and slow, powerful vocals and an interesting story. It’s a pretty unique record that no other band sounds like (and the band themselves would never repeat stylistically) and as long as you aren’t upset that it doesn’t fit neatly into one confined box, this album just gives and gives. It’s a grower, and the more spins you put in, the more magic you get back. In short – highly recommended.

LIFE OF AGONY Ugly

Kingcrimsonprog
1995’s Ugly is the second full-length studio album by the New York band Life Of Agony. It was produced by Steve Thompson and released through Roadrunner Records.

It must have been damn hard to follow up their amazing, one-of-a-kind, conceptual, brutal debut album River Runs Red, and there are a segment of fans who argue they never adequately did, but for me, this album is an absolutely stormer too.

Musically, this album is a pretty interesting hybrid. Its got a touch of Ross Robinson Nu Metal flavour in the way some of the riffs work, its still got a hangover of the band’s NYHC roots but dialed back a bit, there’s touches of Doom, Stoner and Grunge in there at times but not enough to take over the whole album. It’s a pretty unique beast, and there’s plenty of variety on there to further add to the melting pot.

The lyrics on this album are absolutely brilliant. Kind of intense and emotionally weighty. There are topics of disillusionment, alienation, isolation, identity crisis, quarter-life crisis, complex relationships with family members and other such introspection. I know some people hate anything personal and deem anything like this to be “too emo” but in context and in and of itself, the lyrical quality of this album is sky high. Considering the life course of Keith (now Mina) Caputo, the lyrics just have such power and import and really “speak to you.” Topped off with really powerful, evocative and harrowing vocal performances that really project the message of the lyrics, its pretty intense stuff.

Songs like “Lost At 22,” “Damned If I Do” and “How It Would Be” all fell pretty damn profound. It also helps that the musical quality of the album is equally high. “Fears” is absolutely crushing, “Drained” has serious hooks, and “I Regret” feels like a hit single.

The album ends surprisingly with a cover of Simple Minds “(Don’t You) Forget About Me” which you will likely recognize from the movie The Breakfast Club. It’s a pretty straight cover too, no drastic reworking. It feels a bit gimmicky to me, but not enough to spoil the record.

Overall; this is a superbly well-written, interesting and affecting album with some brilliant performances and a lot to offer. If you want it to sound more like Biohazard, Madball and Sick Of It All then the change in musical direction might be a bit off-putting and likewise if you’ve always hated anything “alternative” then perhaps steer clear, but if “a good song is a good song no matter what genre” to you, and you don’t mind the idea of emotionally draining lyrics, then I highly recommend you check out this record.

Life of Agony surfaced from the same musical scene (early 1990's Brooklyn) that birthed Biohazard and Type O Negative (with whom they shared a drummer, Sal Abruscato). Fittingly, the sound on their debut album, River Runs Red, is somewhere between the two bands, with the hardcore ethos of BH and the general mood of Type O Negative at their most self-deprecating (though in a much more serious vein).

Fair warning time: if you're looking for music that is at all happy, seek life elsewhere. This is far from that. What this is, is a slice of hard life, filtered through hardcore-derived metal. That being said, it is crushingly beautiful (or beautifully crushing, take your pick).

The album does contain a few well-placed "hell yeah" moments (in the vein of tough-guy brotherhood type stuff, very hardcore-style), which keep this from being a monotone of depression and anger.

To be honest, there is only really one thing that detracts a slight bit from this album, and that's the skits (the tracks named after days of the week). They serve as a framing device (and, ultimately, a finale) for the album, and they're not horrible. I just find them a bit extraneous for my tastes.

All in all, a firm addition to any metalhead's collection. Four and one-half well earned stars.

"Soul Searching Sun" is the 3rd full-length studio album by US alternative rock/ metal act Life of Agony. The album was released in September 1997 by Roadrunner Records. Dan Richardson has replaced Sal Abruscato on the drums but otherwise there are no changes in the lineup since the last album "Ugly (1995)".

There´s been quite a development in the band´s sound over the course of the first three albums. "River Runs Red (1993)" was more or less a hardcore album with a unique sounding vocal style, while "Ugly" moved away from hardcore and closer to alternative metal. "Soul Searching Sun" moves even further away from hardcore ( actually there´s nothing on this album that indicates that Life of Agony was once a hardcore act) and fully embraces an alternative rock/ metal sound with more than a few nods toward the Seattle scene ( Nirvana and Pearl Jam are to some point valid references IMO).

While the sound production is good and the musicianship solid ( allthough nothing too special) the songwriting on the album is very uninspired to my ears and it unfortunately becomes a major issue the longer you get into the album. It´s actually to a point where even though I´ve owned this album since it was released in 1997, my listen to the album before writing this review, was the first time I have been able to listen to the full 53:06 minutes that the album lasts in one go. The music is completely bereft of energy and enthusiasm to play music. Lead vocalist Keith Caputo sounds like he wants to be anywhere but here. His sedated performance on this album is just the opposite of his passionate and engaging performances on the first two albums. The songs generally lack hooks and memorable moments and the only song that stands out just a bit is "Weeds". Not that even that track measures up to past glories. "Soul Searching Sun" was a great disappointment to me when it came out and it´s actually gotten worse with time if you ask me. At least back then the sound on display here had some sort of relevance. A 2 star rating is warranted.
