THE AGONIST announce new EP, 'Days Before The World Wept', in October
Canadian extreme melodic death metallers THE AGONIST will release a new EP, “Days Before The World Wept”, on October 15 via Napalm Records. Ahead of the release, the band releases the video for “Remnants In Time”.
Watch “Remnants In Time” below.
Frontwoman Vicky Psarakis says about “Remnants In Time” and the accompanying 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.”
“Days Before The World Wept” was produced by Christian Donaldson, who has previously worked with BEYOND CREATION, CRYPTOPSY and DESPISED ICON.
Psarakis adds about the record: “There’s a lot I could say about this EP and its importance to the band, but does it matter? Obviously, this is the part where I tell you these are the best songs we’ve put out to date. Honestly — it’s a journey. You’re either gonna reach the end and want to relive it or you’re not… and that’s okay. Let the music speak for itself.”
