THE AGONIST Premieres Its Cinematic Video For Bluesy Track "The Raven Eyes"
The Agonist released its very-aptly titled album Five last year, and now the band is back with a music video for the track "The Raven Eyes." The video is incredibly cinematic and follows loosely the stories of renaissance plague doctors, according to the band's statement. Between the stunning visuals and the bluesy, acoustic track, what's not to love?
"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."
