Future-Pop-icon Angels & Agony returns after a prolonged hiatus of almost 8 years. The new album „Monument“ combines gigantic melodies with massive beats on the Dutch band's most mature and best output, so far.
Angels & Agony have always been masters of the art of fusing catchy melodies, grand-scale anthemic moments and a foundation of highly club-compatible electronic rhythms with thudding bass and moving beats. The new album, which is aptly titled “Monument”, has the band elevating their captivating Future-Pop-sound to literally monumental heights. Every note has its place, while the band masterfully creates emotional arcs between club-sounds, Pop-sensibility, cleverly dosed bursts of pathos and honest feelings, with compositions that feel more mature and thought-out than ever before. It almost feels like the group deliberately took a long time in creating this record in order to create nothing short of a genre-milestone. When listening to the final result, which has been graced by a tight and full sound mix from renowned producer John Fryer (Nine Inch Nails, HIM, Die Krupps and many more), the only thing that one can say is: mission accomplished! Pretty much no other genre veteran has been able to dish up an electronic feast of this overall quality that is so filled to the brim with hit-potential in the past few years. A monument of Future-Pop!
