The Agonist – FIVE (Album Available Sept 30) Napalm Records

Vicky Psarakis – Vocals | Danny Marino – Guitar | Chris Kells – Bass | Simon McKay- Drums | Pascal “Paco” Jobin – Guitar

First of all, I feel guilty for not experiencing THE AGONIST before. When listening to songs off their new album ‘FIVE’ I was immediately struck by the power of this band,from Vicky Psarakis stunning earth-shaking vocals to the screaming guitars of Danny Marino and Pascal “Paco” Jobin.

For me, all I want out of my metal experience is for a band to hammer me right over the head with their sound and The Agonist seemed to have done that.

Designed to make it all the way to the top in 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. If you’re not on board the bandwagon by now, than you had better get on, because from here on out  THE AGONISTare only going to get better.

Love music! Being around it, watching it, sometimes even playing it since I was a little Trouble-Maker growing up in the Orange County California Punk Scene. I was that one kid who would scale walls and fences just to get a glimpse in side venues to see big bands like Iron Maiden, Circle Jerks, Van Halen ,Black Flag, etc, etc. My past job's has taking me to many cool places. I worked as a PR Asst that has helped with actors & actresses. I have also helped a few bands with their bookings, promos and some management opportunities. For me, music has always been my drug even when I found myself caught up in the drug scene here in the Los Angeles area where I now call home. Today I'm proud to say I've been clean & sober from drug use since 2000. Rock is what I'm mostly into! "Shit that moves you, Shit that has heart and soul." Says the late great Dimebag. I'm currently working as a west coast rep for the radio program Maximum Threshold Radio @ (www.maximumthreshold.net). You can find me @ www.facebook.com/radchad70 where you can see my many journey's into the music scene. MTR: www.facebook.com/MaximumThresholdRadio/.
