Age Of Agony are a band from Hungary that plays a very old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "For the Forgotten" which was released by Neverheard Distro.
Atmospheric sounds start off the album and after a few seconds the music starts to go into a heavier direction along with some morbid sounding melodies and death metal growls and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music is very heavily rooted in the early 90's style of the genre.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic fashion while a great amount of blast beats can be heard during the faster sections of the songs and the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and while the music is rooted in the past the production gives the tracks more of a modern feeling and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Age Of Agony plays a style of death metal on this recording that is very traditional, heavy and old school in the 90's tradition, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover anti Christian, death, war and hatred themes.
In my opinion Age Of Agony are a very great sounding old school death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Korps" "Gunners" "Knight Of Sky" and "Our Last Stand". 8 out of 10.
