Montreal-based five-piece metal outfit THE AGONIST are set to release THE EYE OF PROVIDENCE on Tuesday February 24th in North America. The band has joined forces with Revolver Magazine to bring you a stream of the entire album!
Check it out here:
THE EYE OF PROVIDENCE, or God\’s all-seeing eye, is a piece of religious iconography with origins stemming back to ancient Egypt.
But THE AGONIST aren\’t going all History Channel on their new album. The lyrical center isn\’t about pyramids, the Freemasons, or its appearance on the United States one-dollar bill. As on previous albums, The Agonist are commenting heavily on advances in monitoring technology, particularly as it relates to governments intruding on the private lives of its citizens.
\”We are embracing a number of new topics,\” admits guitarist Danny Marino with a cryptic smile. \”The Agonist still wants to be a voice for change. However, there are many socio-political and personal topics that we haven\’t yet covered. We get into some of those on this record.\”
You can check out their most recent video for \”A Gentle Disease\” on Century Media\’s YouTube channel: http://youtu.be/
