"I'm a long time loa fan since their first album back in '93. At the time (unfortunately presently) the only radio station that played LOA in the NYC/Newark metro area was/is WSOU 89.5 FM Seton Hall's GREAT hardrock radio station. That's why 92 KSUCK blows cause they don't play LOA or Type O Negative great bands that ARE from Nu Yawk! But because of this treasure of a radio station -that you can stream on the net, (www.nj.com/wsou/) I was able to sample, then become a die hard fan of Keith Caputo's haunting wail & the hard driving screech & blast from Joey Z & the boys . These boys -ahem, now men ! ; pour their soul's out in concert. When I heard they reunited after six years, I was ecstatic! I missed them the 1st time around, & when I got the opportunity to see them cause I won tickets from SOU; I was in pig heaven. I missed the Irving plaza show cause I heard the tixs sold out in minutes and was really bumed. I heard that it was going to be a farewell reunion. So when I showed up at the now departed Birchill club (RIP 2003) in Jersey: I was so psycho. They did not disappoint me. So buying the "River Runs Red Again" on blind faith is not a concern. These guys ROCK! And what so cool about LOA is they attract a lot of babes! Unlike a Slayer concert which is a leather boy convention (Just kidding Slayer fans!).If you like your hardrock with passion & soulful vocals. Life of Agony is your band. Keith Caputo is one of music's (not just metal) great singer & songwriter ; his solo cd effort sees to that. You cannot go wrong with this purchase. Buy the way, my cousin won tickets from WSOU to see LOA this time in Sommerset NJ on Jan 24th. He's gonna break his LOA concert cherry. We are so there. Ain't my cuz & I some lucky motherf@#%ers !!!"
This DVD brings back a flood of memories

"I first saw LOA about 11 years ago, opening for Type O Negative at Asbury Park's legendary Stone Pony. My interest in the band fluctuated over the years, especially after they brought in Whitfield Crane to replace Keith on vocals. I was still saddened when the band broke up in 1999. In the intervening years between the band's demise and resurrection, LOA has achieved a legendary status that few bands ever know. This DVD captures everything about the band we ever loved: the pure emotion of the lyrics and the raw dychotomy between Keith's delicate vocals and the anger of the music. Don't just watch LOA, LISTEN to LOA. That's the only way to understand what drives this band. Then you'll see what makes older fans like myself keep flocking to their shows and younger fans connect with them."
