The Agonist – Eye of Providence – Review

Let’s cut right through the waffle shall we? If you’ve been following the metal news you’ll no doubt be aware that the once leading lady, Alissa White-Gluz has departed for Arch Enemy and in her stead has left newcomer Vicky Psarakis.

These Swedish warmongers have been dominating the scene for more than two decades now, with very little, if not any low points in their careers (I find ‘World [...]
