THE AGONIST: 'Gates Of Horns And Ivory' Video Released

"Gates Of Horns And Ivory", the new video from Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based melodic death metallers THE AGONIST, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's new album, "Eye Of Providence", which will be released on February 24 in North America (one day earlier internationally) via Century Media. The band's first CD with singer Vicky Psarakis was recorded at The Grid studio in their hometown with producer Chris Donaldson (CRYPTOPSY). Vicky joined THE AGONIST as the replacement for Alissa White-Gluz, who left the band to focus on her new gig as the frontwoman of ARCH ENEMY.

Guitarist Danny Marino had this to say about the "Gates Of Horns And Ivory" video: "We had a great time shooting the 'Gates Of Horns And Ivory' video with our good friend and longtime collaborator David Brodsky. It was great to finally have a video where we get to laugh at ourselves as well!

"If you've ever met the band, you would know were not always as serious as our music may let on.

"The title and lyrics of 'Gates Of Horns And Ivory' were inspired by the ancient Greek text The Odyssey.

"It is said that within dreams should you see something enter through gates made of horn you can know it to be true in life. If the gates are ivory, that it is a deception, and in life you should not trust whatever you saw come through those gates.

"It's a very interesting concept and I adapted it to things I have witnessed in my life.

"For the video we decided to use the music industry as the setting for the duality of horn (truth) and ivory (deception)."
