Agony In The Garden
"Mack" a one man band that goes by the name Agony In The Garden (AITG) he is an independent (yeah!). He hails from West Carrollton, OH in the US of A
I got a tip to check him out from one of my twitter followers. Can I say it was one of the best things I did. I paid and downloaded his songs and well it is now on heavy rotation and I mean that I can't get enough of it, Let's get into it shall we?
The first track is "Aegis (The Contagious Mix)" and what a track it is, the awesome guitar intro to start the track is kick ass, then the vocals kick in and what a voice, it suits this music and the wall of sound guitar that dominates this track, the drums are amazing and I especially love the lyrics and mid way through it is like poetry one of my favourite tracks!
"BD - Shadows And Dust" I love the lyrics at the start of this track "Darkness is upon our gate..." and then this track kicks in with a guitar and drum intro, yeah I love it! The guitar and drums really set the mood and intensity of the lyrics and the vocals. Man I love this track, it has more emotion and soul than most music out there today, I do love the lull in the music about three quarters of the way into into the song and especially towards the end of the song when it launches into one of my favourite things of all time a "blistering guitar solo!" I love guitar solos as they really highlight how talented a musician Mack is, they are the sign of a true musician. Mack you are one gifted musician!
"In Despair We Rise" - absolutely one of my favourite tracks on the album (yes I can have more than one favourite). I love this song from start to finish. The guitar, the drums, the bass, the vocals, the lyrics the whole fucking song is perfection!
I highly recommend Agony In the Garden" it is truly awesome! Mack Perry is one super talented musician with an amazing sound and I feel so inspired after listening to his songs, I have been playing them non-stop, they have something that I can only describe as having been created by a true artist who knows his craft and each of the songs displays that talent and flair that only a true musician can create. The songs are almost like an experience you feel moved and only great musicians can do this and it is amazing! I especially love playing the songs really loud!
I am giving these songs a massive 5 shots of whiskey out of 5! Yes they are that good so do yourself a favour and get this songs for your collection! You can buy them here. On facebook here.
Till next week
Peace Out my Bitches!
