The Agonist Announce New EP, Stream First Single
Canadian melodeath marauders The Agonist have announced that they’ll release a depressingly-titled new EP, Days Before the World Wept, on October 29 via Napalm.
Along with the announcement comes a new single, “Remnants in Time” — and there ain’t nuthin’ depressing about that. An operatic neck breaker in the vein of Dimmu Borgir and Fleshgod Apocalypse, the song is another ripper that amply demonstrates how much ass The Agonist can kick.
Frontwoman Vicky Psarakis says about “Remnants in Time” and its video:
“‘Remnants in Time’ is the first chapter in this story. It marks the final moments of a person’s life and the journey that begins right after.
“We wanted the visuals to strongly reflect the lyrics and the concept behind them, and transforming me into a demon was key in that. I’m a huge fan of horror/sci-fi and makeup transformations, so working with a professional makeup artist and the use of prosthetics was the coolest part for me!
“This song – and video – is all about extremes. Angelic and demonic, fragile and strong, delicate and aggressive. It embodies a lot of what The Agonist is about.”
