Beauty of Suffering
Classic Rock: 'If your taste in progressive rock leans toward the Tool/A Perfect Circle/Mars Volta side of things, then this new Cincinnati quartet could be just the band for you. The Healing lulls you into a false sense of security with it's low-key beginning, before it morphs into an expansive, atmospheric song complete with an extended instrumental break. Fans of latter-day Marillion will find much to enjoy here.' ------------ Metal Hammer: 'Every track does have it's moments of brilliance. Another Tragedy attempt to merge Deftones with Tool, and then Opeth with early Incubus. When the approach works, as on the walloping dreamscape of 'Nowhere Anthem', or the downtuned groove of 'The Healing', this is an intelligent, yet primal force of a record.' ------------- Rocksound: 'Inspired moments that suggest they might just develop into something truly great...Plenty of generic hard rock riffs...You can't help but be intrigued by the possibility of what lies ahead' ------------- Rock Midgets: 'This is an ambitious and stylish, multi-textured and multi-faceted album...Around a heavy rock heartbeat there are snarling riff attacks...Huge arena-bound choruses...Guitars spit and slide and scream with equal flair...If your faith in rock and metal has been shaken recently, this is truly more than enough to reconfirm it...This is too good to ignore' ------------- Ytsejam.com: 'Technical, aggressive, melodic, punchy, and melodic...The album could be seen as provoking a new sense of hard rock in the world of music...How to put some balls back into the world of rock music' ------------- Soldier: 'This is a superb hard rock album...It's original and musically sound...Another Tragedy's debut album is a must' ---------------- The four piece progressive heavy rock act hail from Greater Cincinnati, Ohio. The bands sound is fuelled with the rawness and brutality that made bands such as Black Sabbath and Rage Against The Machine so compelling. The band is made up of Johnathan Chapman (Vocals), Lee Dixon (Guitar- vocals), Matt Menard (Bass) and Caleb Campbell (Drums). Another Tragedy perfectly blend syncopated rhythms, driving bass and slab heavy guitars with the thought provoking and radio friendly vocals of Chapman. The band draws on influences such as Led Zeppelin and Tool for their brutal but beautifully melodic songs. "Broken", "Nowhere Anthem" and "Nothing Left" provide the album with enough aggression to allow for the more emotional heartfelt songs such as "The Healing" and "Headcase" to create the perfectly balanced album. "The Beauty Of Suffering" executes well crafted heavy-progressive rock songs with enough soul to convince you that Another Tragedy drink from the same well of invention of bands such as Incubus, A Perfect Circle and The Mars Volta.
