Canadian melodic death metallers The Agonist have released a brand new video for “Immaculate Deception” taken from their 2021 EP “Days Before The World Wept” out now via Napalm Records.

Speaking about the track and video, 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 can not 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!

The Agonist are set to return to the UK supporting headliners Hypocrisy alongside special guests Septicflesh and fellow support artist Horizon Ignited. Tickets are available below.

The Agonist – Immaculate Deception Lyrics

If you look at the face of evil
Evil will look right back at you

They raise their pitchforks to the sky
Summoning the moon as their guide
Their dragging feet march on the slab
To the beat of an absent snare drum
A vision unseen of bodies dancing in the night
For the beauty in unison cannot be denied

You can nail them to the cross
You can burn them at the stake
But their sins will never be forgiven

Would you trade an arm and a leg for the promise of time?

Memories fade as new thought is created
They kindly move out for the good to take their place
The hope of redemption will never undo your wrongs
Time is unforgiving to those who try to run

For those who see the world as evil, let me tell you this
Even cruel actions have a purpose to fulfill
They’ll sing in places you thought no notes were even left
‘Cause you see in the end
Music would not live in an evil world

If you look at the face of evil
Evil will look right back!

Would you trade an arm and a leg for the promise of time?

Memories fade as new thought is created
They kindly move out for the good to take their place
The hope of redemption will never undo your wrongs
Time is unforgiving to those who try to run

These hands are unforgiving to those who try to run

These hands are unforgiving to those who try to run
