The Agonist release “The Raven Eyes” video

The Agonist have premiered the music video for their song “The Raven Eyes”. Guitarist Danny Marino comments:

“Writing this was a departure for Vicky and I but it may have been one of the most rewarding as songwriters. It allowed us to explore sounds and emotions we’ve always wanted to but could never quite get to in a metal setting.

Also, working with Igor Khoroshev (Yes) really helped bring out the full depth of Vicky’s piano and string arrangements. The lyrics were originally inspired by stories of the renaissance plague doctors. FTB Visuals was able to take these themes and create a modern world storyline with an equally dark overtone that captured the painful emotions in the song.”

The song appears on the group’s latest offering Five (Napalm Records). Next month, the band will heading out on a headlining tour of their native Canada.
