Agony’s beginning echoes honor to those who would challenge the sun. Though our overture reflects the eternal dream the sleeper has awakened. As we bore witness to this paradox the logic is ill refute.
Lyrics that could only be written in the stones, they will echo through eternity and well beyond. Enter our coliseum, let it begin. Submerged in a rich sound filled musical background ranging from Blues to Metal, combining these multifaceted influences to create a wall of sound engulfing the listener at the event horizon and never letting go.
