Life Of Agony Documentary ‘The Sound Of Scars’ To Premiere In April, Trailer Available


A new full-length documentary on Life Of Agony dubbed ‘The Sound Of Scars‘ has been announced for a two-week virtual screening that will begin Friday, April 16th. The director’s cut of that film will be available for a limited two-week window starting on that date, with more details regarding tickets and more to be made available via

The 90-minute film was directed by Leigh Brooks (‘Terrorvision: Wired Up and Scary‘), who commented of the feature:

“This isn’t a typical music documentary. It’s as personal as it gets. I first saw the band live at the London Astoria in 1996. Since then, LOA has become an absolute go-to when I felt alone and insecure about myself. This film is an intimate portrait that sheds light on the real life stories that make their music so vital and relevant.”

An official press release said of the feature:

The Sound of Scars‘ utilizes personal archive footage, rare photographs, and lost interviews, along with new, never-before-seen conversations with the band and their family members that tells the story of how three friends overcame domestic violence, substance abuse, and depression to form one of the most influential bands in its genre.

Through the success of their groundbreaking 1993 debut ‘River Runs Red‘, hailed by Rolling Stone as ‘One of the Greatest Metal Albums of All Time’, they channeled their cumulative life stories into a soundtrack for a broken generation. At the time, that newfound fame allowed them to escape the tragedies of their pasts, but in the wake of their accomplishments, unforeseen obstacles arose.

‘We’ve completely ripped our deepest selves open for this film,’ says guitarist Joey Zampella. ‘The audience and our fan base will completely understand the mold we were broken from, and what this journey means to us.’

The 90-minute film also takes a deep dive into lead vocalist Mina Caputo’s gender transition. ‘We’ve never avoided tough conversations and we don’t pretend to have all the answers,’ says Caputo. ‘But, this film is a roadmap with many great lessons. It shows a ton of vulnerability… moments of falling downward and others where we rise strong. Enjoy this gift of imperfection. May you find the tools to be braver with this film.”

A portion of the proceeds from the virtual screening events will go towards National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and All Out. A trailer for the ‘The Sound Of Scars’ can be seen below:
