Agony In The Garden began in 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. Adding drummer Bobby Milton and second guitarist Michael Greer in July, in September the band released the single Obsolete, “a sonically hard-hitting metal rock tune that dazes the senses” from the album Second Light. The band is set to begin touring in 2017.
Agony’s music style fuses rock, metal and blues incorporating poly-rhythmic guitar with “poetic song lyrics, compelling and socially relevant.” Perry’s vocals, “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 videos featured by guitar sponsor WT. Foster Guitars. “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.”
Within two years of Agony In The Garden entering the music scene Mack received sponsorship from Band-Brand, Cape Whoopies, Rest Assured Apparel and WT. Foster Guitars.
In July of 2015 Mack appeared on The #1 webshow in the world; The Jimmy Star Show featuring the title track Where Olympus Dwells from the premier EP.
Agony’s title track from EP Where Olympus Dwells has been included in the soundtrack for the film Precision. The second track from Where Olympus Dwells; Let It Burn is currently being featured during various CBS Sports events as well as being featured during The Super Bowl Live in 2016.
On October 26th Agony In The Garden announced their signing with Spectra Music Group.
While being interviewed Perry 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.”
