The Agonist seem to be designed to make it all the way

Montreal Metal –a seal of approval to be reckoned with: the perfect breeding ground for bands looking for a menacing wall of sound!

Next to Despised Icon, Beneath The Massacre and Cryptopsy, The Agonist seem to be designed to make it all the way to the top of the extreme metal scene with their fine-tuned mixture of melodic death metal and metal core.

Five makes the elite status of the Canadian five piece even clearer, enforcing their goal to escape the mundane.

Singer Vicky Psarakis’s joining of the group in 2014 only enhanced The Agonist’s knack for touching melodies (just give the lascivious ‘The Raven Eyes’ a whirl), and flirting with alternative rock became a habit.

However there is still palpable aggression in the air, discharging in technical death metal solos, beastly growls and massive breakdowns. The Agonist are destined to keep the throne of all things luscious and catchy yet indefinitely brutal!
