Brooklyn-based metal group Life of Agony
went through many different phases in their early days, ranging from hardcore and heavy metal beginnings to endless lineup changes and even embracing a more alternative pop-friendly sound for a time. The Complete Roadrunner Collection 1993-2000
gathers together material from more than five of the band's early albums, including the 1993 thrash debut River Runs Red
as well as the more trend-hopping later albums Ugly
and Soul Searching Sun
. The compilation's 68 tracks are rounded out by live tracks from a 1997 unplugged performance.
