Life of Agony

Life of Agony is a hard rock/metal crossover band from Brooklyn, NY. Best known for their debut album “River Runs Red”, LOA has shared stages with the biggest names in rock for over two decades, including Metallica, Black Sabbath, Slipknot, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Other studio albums include “Ugly”, “Soul Searching Sun”, and “Broken Valley.” Life of Agony released their 5th full-length album on 4/28/17 titled “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” (Napalm Records) to critical acclaim.

Silvertomb marks the return of Type O Negative guitarist Kenny Hickey and drummer Johnny Kelly in their first new project since the death of TON frontman Peter Steele in 2010. The band’s debut album, currently in production, is a eulogy to Steele featuring Hickey on guitars and vocals, Kelly on drums, NYC hardcore veterans Joseph James (Agnostic Front) and Henry Belfor (Inhuman) and guitarist/keyboardist Aaron Joos.

Why Silvertomb? The name is simultaneously light and dark, and is coupled with imagery that harkens back to native and Egyptian mythologies where death was not feared, but embraced as a transformation. In death comes new life…Silvertomb.
