Angels and Agony are a Dutch futurepop band consisting of vocalist Reinier Kahle, guitarist Erik Wierenga, DJ Marco van Belle on synthesizer
and backing vocals and Fried Bruggink as sound engineer and drummer. The band formed in 1995 and produced two EPs before its first full
album, Eternity (2001). Eternity was produced by VNV Nation's Ronan Harris. Other high-profile collaborations include Axel Ermes of
Girls Under Glass, Diorama, and SITD. The band's current record label (since Eternity, 2001) is Out of Line, a German label of industrial- and
synthpop-oriented electronic bands. Metropolis Records is the band's US distributor since 2004.
