Agony In The Garden’s inception occurred on April of 2013 as a one man band with singer/songwriter multi-instrumentalist Mack Perry writing and recording all of Agony’s music. Releasing a debut four song EP, “Where Olympus Dwells,” in May, 2015. In Feb. 2016 Mack and Clint Lowery of Grammy Nominated Sevendust co-wrote 3 tracks. In September that same year the band released the single “Obsolete,” which was “a sonically hard-hitting metal rock tune that dazes the senses”.
In July of 2015 Mack appeared on the #1 web show in the world, The Jimmy Star Show with Ron Russell, featuring the title track of Agony’s premier EP, “Where Olympus Dwells.” The track was also included on the soundtrack for the film “Precision.” “Let It Burn” from the same EP was repeatedly featured on CBS Sports as well as The Super Bowl Live in 2016.
Agony’s music style fuses Rock, singer/songwriter and Blues incorporating poly-rhythmic guitar with “poetic song lyrics, that are compelling and socially relevant.” In a prior review Perry’s vocals were cited as “one of the best voices I’ve heard in years. Deep, rich with a bit of grit.”
Agony’s sound and techniques are high lit not only in the music but also demonstrated in various videos featuring Perry’s profound guitar technique and style. “Perry’s intricate rhythms and medieval feel remind me of Alter Bridge. The almost psychedelic, brilliant guitar calls to mind Dream Theater’s best music.”
With AITG’s arrival on the music scene Mack and Agony received various sponsorships and endorsements including CT Music Straps, Dean Markley Strings and WB Gear, supporting and proving his musical prowess.
On the new single “Vertigo” which is now available worldwide, Agony In The Garden’s tone continue to evolve with the ever-changing times. This single is sure to engulf you in Vertigo.
Perry has stated that Agony’s message is simply, “no matter what you’re going through as long as you wake daylight never dies. It’s never too late.” He exemplifies this himself and returns to light the fires once again for all to hear!
