Agony Scene, The : The Agony Scene

At The Gates (particularly the Slaughter of the Soul album) must be the most-often referenced band when it comes to brutal, melodic death metal. Not a bad thing in my book. The Agony Scene (from Oklahoma, which in some weird, ironic way probably isn't as far from Sweden as we may initially think) have certainly taken a page or two from the book written by the legendary Swedes, put their own spin on it and emerged with this burning slab of passion. (Like ATG, TAS have a song called "Nausea." How weird is that?)

The songs here are powerful and often frightening (witness "Eyes Sewn Shut" or "Shotgun Wedding," along with "Vivid," a slightly less thrash-intensive track) but never less crushing than a cannonball landing on an ant. Dig their cover of the Rolling Stones classic "Paint It Black."
