Welcome to “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” by Brooklyn’s legendary LIFE OF AGONY – who return after 12 long years with their strongest and probably most emotional work to date!
LIFE OF AGONY emerged from the New York music scene in the early ’90s with one of the most distinctive sounds in its genre. Best known for its 1993 metal/crossover debut River Runs Red, the band instantly built a die-hard, cult following. For over two decades, the group toured relentlessly all over the world, sharing stages with the biggest names in rock, including Metallica, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Foo Fighters, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. After the much-praised Ugly (1995), Life of Agony opted for a highly energetic alternative rock approach on Soul Searching Sun (1997) and Broken Valley (2005) – the latter produced by Greg Fidelman (Slipknot, Metallica). LIFE OF AGONY has sold over one million albums to date.
Yesterday, on April 28th, LIFE OF AGONY’s 5th studio album, titled A Place Where There’s No More Pain, finally saw the light of day and celebrated its worldwide release on Napalm Records!
Produced by Matt Brown & Life Of Agony and mastered by Ted Jensen (Alice in Chains, Machine Head, Deftones), the drive and intensity these ten blistering new tracks possess, surpass all expectations that built up in the past 12 years – a cathartic Sturm & Drang experience for the listener that matches the ferocity of River Runs Red with gut wrenching rock melodies. Raging guitar riffs, heartfelt lyrics and killer grooves mark the return of LOA’s signature sound and turn A Place Where There’s No More Pain into a passionate, soul-searching affair.
The worldwide music press celebrates A Place Where There’s No More Pain and says:
“One of the Most Anticipated Albums of the Year!”
“Life Of Agony’s return is set to blow you away!”
“One of the best rock albums of the year!”
“Life of Agony have reinvented themselves and returned with A Place Where There’s No More Pain, an alternative hard rock record that features the group’s strongest material since their debut!”
“Comeback Album of the Year? Very well possible!”
Metal Hammer Germany
“A true return to form which will satisfy the hunger of their loyal fanbase whilst recruiting newbies along the way. It’s great to have them back!”
Vive Le Rock
Well-deserved, and with their brand new masterpiece which came out yesterday, LIFE OF AGONY already made it on several cover stories all over the world!
