Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based melodic death metallers THE AGONIST have posted a teaser for their forthcoming album — their first since signing a worldwide deal with Napalm Records. The CD was recorded with producer Mike Plotnikoff, who has previously worked with BUCKCHERRY, OTEP, HALESTORM, DROWNING POOL, THEORY OF A DEADMAN, 3 DOORS DOWN, FEAR FACTORY, FLYLEAF and SKILLET, among others.
THE AGONIST guitarist Danny Marino stated about the band’s new material: “Since recording ‘Eye Of Providence’, we have been exploding with creativity and are set to record our best record to date. We’ve been working non-stop on the material on and off the road and now after four albums we have really found ourselves.
“Vicky [Psarakis, vocals] and I seem to operate on a hive mind where we know exactly what the other is going for in the writing before it happens. It can actually be freaky sometimes. We are also very excited to be recording this album with Mike Plotnikoff. His experience and input will really help take our sound to a new level.”
“Eye Of Providence” was released in February 2015 via Century Media. The band’s first CD with Psarakis was recorded at The Grid studio in their hometown with producer Chris Donaldson (CRYPTOPSY).
Vicky joined THE AGONIST as the replacement for Alissa White-Gluz, who left the band to focus on her new gig as the frontwoman of ARCH ENEMY.
