Art Against Agony
ARTIST: Art Against Agony
There’s more to it than meets the eyes behind these masks and much more than meets the ear: ART AGAINST AGONY, who just finished work on their upcoming album Shiva Appreciation Society, are brilliant composers and instrumentalists who see the band as just one of many tools of expression in their creative garage.
Their albums, leaving the listeners highly satisfied, politely appreciative or outright flabbergasted, have been met with all sorts of media reactions, leading to the most brilliant approach of describing what the listener gets pulled into: "a journey from a metal concert to an absinth jazz-bar." Stylistically, the virtuoso jazz/metal unit has been called "Prog-Jazz-Experimental-Brainfuck-Metal" (metal.de) and even named "Messiahs of Prog" (progsphere.com).
