The Agony Scene was a metalcore/deathcore band from Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. The band was named after a picture of Jesus weeping. On October 8 2008, frontman Mike Williams confirmed that the band had broken up in the spring of that year. Although The Agony Scene was known for blending several corrosive elements from genres including thrash metal, black metal and hardcore punk, the band was also generally considered to be a part of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal.

The band had released three albums, one on Solid State Records, one on Roadrunner Records, and one on Century Media Records. It had been signed to Abacus Records for a while when it folded.
