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” (Roadrunner Records), named by Rolling Stone as being one of the “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time” 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. LOA went onto release two more studio albums for Roadrunner: “Ugly” (’95) and “Soul Searching Sun” (’97), before signing to major label Sony/Epic Records in 2005 to record “Broken Valley” with producer Greg Fidelman (Slipknot, Metallica). Life of Agony has sold over one million albums to date.
In 2017, LOA released its 5th studio album, titled “A Place Where There’s No More Pain”. Rolling Stone hailed it as “One of the Most Anticipated Albums of the Year” Life of Agony’s “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” is available on Napalm Records. The album was produced by Matt Brown & Life of Agony and mastered by Ted Jensen (Alice in Chains, Machine Head, Deftones).
