NEWS: The Agonist share “Immaculate Deception” video ahead of EU/UK tour!
Ahead of their impending European tour that starts in just a few days time, Canadian Melodic Death Metal act TheAgonist have shared a music video for “Immaculate Deception” from their surprisingly heavy recently releaed EP “Days Before the World Wept“. Produced by Christian Donaldson (Beyond Creation, Cryptopsy, Despised Icon), it’s one we highly recommend with the dates upon our shores being just around the corner…
05.10 London, Islington Assembly Hall
06.10 Birmingham, Institute II
07.10 Manchester, Academy II
Vocalist Vicky Psarakis says: “Immaculate Deception is a song about societal pressure and feelings of remorse over time.
The main point I want to highlight is the concept of time and the fear that comes with it. We all reach a point where we start noticing that we’re aging. In current society, there’s a big push to try and preserve our physical state. There’s a huge movement of cosmetic procedures and products that promise us “eternal youth”. People like to think that they can keep reliving their 20s, instead of embracing the natural course of life and the challenges and rewards that come with it.
To bring this vision to life, we focused on our main character coming face to face with different versions of herself: her naturally aged older self chasing her with an imaginary “mob” (representing society) and her unrecognizable cosmetically altered self staring at her through the mirror. She ultimately realizes she can not run anymore.
Remorse is a powerful feeling and influencing factor for a lot of our decisions, but the fact is you can never go back in time and change the things you’ve done. All you can do is learn and push yourself to be better over time.
To thank all our fans who directly donated money for this video to be made, we added their names to the credits. We could not have done this without you!”
