Vicky Psarakis said the following about the EP:
“There’s a lot I could say about this EP and its importance to the band, but does it matter? Obviously, this is the part where I tell you these are the best songs we’ve put out to date. Honestly — it’s a journey. You’re either gonna reach the end and want to relive it or you’re not… and that’s okay. Let the music speak for itself.”
A video for the effort’s first single, “Remnants In Time,” can be found below. Psarakis added the following about that:
“‘Remnants in Time’ is the first chapter in this story. It marks the final moments of a person’s life and the journey that begins right after.
We wanted the visuals to strongly reflect the lyrics and the concept behind them, and transforming me into a demon was key in that. I’m a huge fan of horror/sci-fi and makeup transformations, so working with a professional makeup artist and the use of prosthetics was the coolest part for me!
This song — and video — is all about extremes. Angelic and demonic, fragile and strong, delicate and aggressive. It embodies a lot of what The AgonisT is about.”
