Album Review
Life of Agony tap into some serious topics, but this time around they seem even more severe over the course of 14 tracks, 4 of which are interludes. Wholly about the toughest moments in life, the ones that could scar you forever, destroy a life, and even have some committing suicide, tracks like the intense lead single “Scars,” emotional “Lay Down,” and powerfully-charged “My Way Out” really paint a vivid picture. That said, while the lyrics tell a story of feeling hopeless, frustrated, or simply misplaced, the instrumental arrangements match the words in a fitting fashion with tight, heavy guitar grooves, punchy drums, and a thick bottom-end of bass.
A diverse album with Alternative Metal arrangements featuring hints of Sleaze Rock at times, and even some old school Grunge, The Sound of Scars has everything you would expect from Life of Agony. A dark collection of songs that are lovable and enjoyable, this is a concept album that tells a story without fairy dust and dreams. Raw and dirty.
