Official press release:

Death metal trailblazers The Agonist have just revealed a twisted new music video for the crushing, grooving track "Immaculate Deception", cut from their Juno nominated EP, Days Before the World Wept, out now via Napalm Records!

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 cannot 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!

A Whorse named The Agonist:The Agonist drops a pile of horseshit. Pick it up and let the psuedo "Gothenburg influence" slide between your cradling bare fingers. Then lick the remnants of the feces off of your bare knuckles.

I would pay a fistful of Yen to watch the vocalist drop a "Cleveland steamer" in a mega Hot Sauna.

Wow that chorus sucked donkey balls. I was rooting for this to be better than arch enemy but it's just bad and it has no riffs.. at least arch enemy has one riff per 5-6 songs
