Before the upcoming virtual screening in April, Life of Agony has released the official trailer to The Sound of Scars documentary. The full-length documentary will feature personal footage, rare photographs, and never-before-seen conversations with the metal band.
According to the official website, the documentary follows “the story of how three friends overcame domestic violence, substance abuse, and depression to form one of the most influential bands in its genre.” After the success of their groundbreaking debut River Runs Red in 1993, the band channeled their life stories into a soundtrack for a broken generation. Their newfound fame allowed them to escape the tragedies of their pasts. But in the wake of their accomplishments, unforeseen obstacles came about.
Here are 5 reasons why we’re excited for the The Sound of Scars documentary:
5) The Director’s Cut!
Beginning Friday, April 16th, 2021, fans will get the chance to stream a virtual screening of The Sound of Scars Director’s Cut for a limited two-week window. As part of the bonus material, there will also be a Q&A discussion with the band and director Leigh Brooks. The Q&A session will be moderated by SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal host Shawn the Butcher.
4) They Ripped Themselves Open!
In a recent interview with Revolver Magazine, guitarist Joey Zampella states, ”We’ve completely ripped our deepest selves open for this film. The audience and our fan base will completely understand the mold we were broken from, and what this journey means to us.”
3) It’s A Gift of Imperfection!
In the 90-minute documentary, lead vocalist Mina Caputo will also open up on the topic of gender transition. Discussing the great lessons in the film, Caputo adds, “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.”
2) Meet & Greet!
Alan Robert recently tweeted there will be a virtual meet and greet packages for the Director’s Cut Screening of The Sound of Scars. Readers will get the opportunity to video chat with the band. Here’s your chance to come up with a good question that will blow their minds!
1) For Charity!
For a good cause, part of the proceeds from the event will go to support National Suicide Prevention Hotline and All Out.
