Crossover that runs through a gambit of influences
Agony Kings are an enjoyable crossover act out of New York. The record has been an ongoing project for the last ten years and finally reached fruition this year as an independent release. The album features vocalist Mike Stack (False Gods) and runs through a gambit of influences like Suicidal Tendencies, mid-era Anthrax and D.R.I. A lively percussion serves as the chainmail behind the one-guitar attack, seemingly walls of riffs behind the occasional mid-paced groove. It's energetic, engaging and I wish I could bottle one-tenth of its energy to get through Mondays.
