Song: Wahre Liebe
Agonoize is a German Aggrotech band constituted of Mike Johnson (composition, programming, production & mastering), Oliver Senger (composition & programming) and Chris L (lyrics & vocals).
Established in late 2002 as a duo between Johnson and Senger, it soon became apparent that the act needed a frontman to improve their stage performance and Chris L. became lead vocalist, making Agonoize a trio.
Their first concert was on April 11, 2004 at Edinburghâ€™s annual Dark City Festival billed alongside VNV Nation, Gothminister, NFD, Seize. The bandâ€™s follow-up concert was in Berlin as the support act of [:SITD:], who in return remixed â€œParanoid Destructionâ€, later to become an eponymous track in the groupâ€™s debut release, Paranoid Destruction.
The MCD was an instant success, entering the Deutsche Alternative Charts at number seven and remaining in the charts for eight weeks. Agonoizeâ€™sâ€™ fanbase has been rapidly growing since then. 2004â€²s Assimilation: Chapter One completely sold out, leading to re-release titled Assimilation: Chapter Two was made in 2006 containing a bonus twelve-track disc. Agonoize have since released three further albums, â€™999â€² in 2005, â€˜Siebenâ€™ in 2007 and â€˜Hexakosioihexekontahexaâ€™ in 2009.
