This blog is featuring the band "Agony In The Garden" and their album "Where Olympus Dwells" - Agony In The Garden surprisingly is a one man Rock/Metal band and not something you see everyday which makes his music that little extra awesome considering the fact makes the beats on the drums, guitar, bass and lyrics himself and mixes them together perfectly.
The Album features 4 tracks, Angels Fall, Let It Burn, Where Olympus Dwells and Queen Of Hearts.
My two favorite songs from the album are Queen Of Hearts and Angels Fall. Now, although this genre of music is not what i would usually listen too I enjoyed this album but these particular songs.
Angels Fall - This is a very low beat song at the beginning which brings the song in slowly but nicely showing off his guitar skills. As the time increases the beat gets a little heavier and faster and the drums start to appear along with the bass which shows more passion and empathy within the lyrics. I think this is a really beautiful well though about song, due to the lyrics and he sings with passion which you can clearly hear - what can be more beautiful than passion?
Queen Of Hearts - Again, this is another slow song which again is brought in so perfectly. I'm unsure whether it was acoustic or electric guitar, my guess - Acoustic with amplified effect or he has a second guitarist or two instrumentals layered together. Like "Angles Fall" (mentioned above) the drums are slowly brought in, just like the bass. Being located in Ohio really shines through his voice in this song and almost gives it rural metal feel which i really enjoyed.
