New EP, Days Before The World Wept, out this Friday, October 15 via Napalm Records
Canadian extreme melodic death metal juggernaut THE AGONIST takes another bold step in their musical and lyrical progression with their blazing new EP, Days Before The World Wept, out this Friday, October 15, 2021 via Napalm Records! Inspired by real life experiences, Days Before The World Wept explores a grim, conceptual tale of greed, gluttony, confusion, pain, redemption and hope enveloped in a new level of aggression and cohesive, technical prowess.
Following up to their dynamic latest single, “Remnants In Time” and its haunting music video, THE AGONIST is thrilled to reveal the EP’s second single, “Feast On The Living” and another killer video! The certified burner stands tall with rollercoaster clean and gritty vocals, rapid fire drums and needle-sharp guitar leads and solos, cementing the track as one of the most technically meticulous of the band’s career and a forewarning of the band’s more extreme leanings.
Musically, ‘Feast On The Living’ is a much more straightforward metal track. You’re 4 songs into the EP, at this point you know exactly what you’re going to be served and you’re loving it.”

Produced by Christian Donaldson (Beyond Creation, Cryptopsy, Despised Icon), Days Before The World Wept packs several albums worth of skill, songwriting prowess and melancholic lyrical mastery into just five tracks – leaving no stone unturned!
Opening track “Remnants In Time” begins ominously with ghostly piano lines performed by lead vocalist Vicky Psarakis before slamming into a double bass, one-woman choir explosion rife with needle-precision guitar work by deft guitarists Danny Marino and Pascal Jobin. The death metal burner brings non-stop energy throughout, showcasing Psarakis’ multifaceted vocal attack as she nails searing highs, guttural lows and magical clean passages in one fell swoop. The onslaught continues with the rhythmic soundscapes of cry for salvation “Immaculate Deception”, blending fast paced, aggressive verses with haunting, melodic choruses. “Resurrection”
