Italian High-octane Rocksters drop their hugely impressive debut offering through Ant Street Records on 7th March 2011.

Hailing from Northern Italy, from the quaint seaside town of Savona, Italian riff merchants Aaron’s Agony were formed in 2008 after the demise of their previous band, The Choice. Members Gabry (drums), Max (guitar/backing vocals) and Zack(bass/lead vocals) joined forces with Eros Pedone, aka “Diè” (lead vocals) and Gionata Damele (guitar/lead vocals), to form Aaron’s Agony. Tied by a long time friendship stretching back to school and in brothers Gabry and Max, by blood, the posse have grown up together sharing the highs and lows of life’s challenges. Last year, the up-and-coming rock combo locked down management with established Italian management agency, Alkemist Fanatix Europe. After securing management, the vigorous five piece soon penned an album deal with German label Antstreet Records. Aided by a melting pot of influences ranging from the hardcore through to electronica, and from punk to metal, Aaron’s Agony have sculptured a sound that is rammed with melody and riff stomping ingenuity.

Aaron’s Agony are now all set to drop their eagerly awaited debut album entitled “Lost Inside Myself”. Blasting from your speakers with soaring sing-a-long choruses and super-charged riffs, the record unleashes a hefty blow to the senses and promises to please, from the hugely infectious up-tempo rhythms and shout-out refine of ‘We Are Back’ through to the two-prong vocal attacks and beefy jack hammer guitar slams of ‘It’s Manna From Heaven’ (which features Parachutes’ vocalist Stefan Kinn), the record is stuffed full of innovative hooks and driving beatdowns. There’s no letting up as the album draws to a dramatic close with the brutally dynamic ‘Voices From Inside Call For Valkyria’ where voice-box Diè scrapes the bile from the guts of his soul with a hearty performance. Mastered in New York by Alan Douches (A Day to Remember, Atreyu), the record is all primed and ready for your consumption. Load up and soak it in!
