The Agony Scene Premiere “The Ascent And Decline” Video

The Agony Scene have premiered a new video for their song “The Ascent And Decline.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Tormentor.“ The group commented:

“‘The Ascent And Decline‘ lyrically, is about watching as people abandon a belief system that they built their lives and careers upon in order to catch a ride on the next train, diving headfirst into a cult of personality. [It’s] effectively selling one’s voice to be on the winning team.”

The Agony Scene Premiere New Song “Serpent’s Tongue” Feat. Emil Werstler (Ex-Chimaira, Etc.)

The Agony Scene have premiered a new song titled “Serpent’s Tongue.” This track features Emil Werstler (ex-Chimaira, etc.) and it will appear on the band’s new album “Tormentor“ (out July 20). The group commented:

“‘Serpent’s Tongue‘ was the first song we wrote after getting back together in 2014. Lyrically, the song is about individuals who give no fucks about deceiving or trampling on others for personal gain. The track also features a guitar solo performed by the one and only Emil Werstler.”

The Agony Scene Premiere “The Submissive” Lyric Video

The Agony Scene have premiered a lyric video for their new song “The Submissive,” via New Noise Magazine. This track is from the band’s new album “Tormentor,“ which will be released on July 20. The group commented:

“The song is about the abuse of power and trust. More specifically — authority figures preying on naivety and using fear as a means to control and manipulate.”

The Agony Scene Share “Tormentor” Album Preview

The Agony Scene have shared an album preview for their new album “Tormentor.“ That effort will be released on July 20. As previously reported, the band will be hitting the road on The Summer Slaughter Tour.

The Agony Scene Premiere “Hand Of The Divine” Music Video

The Agony Scene have premiered a new video for their new song “Hand Of The Divine,” via Revolver. This track is from the band’s first new album since 2007, “Tormentor“ (out July 20).

Chris Emmons commented:

“There is an underlying theme to much of the record, and that is the idea of an insane, manipulative creator, a ‘Tormentor‘ of all mankind, if you will. The lyrics also touch on the idea that an unquestioning belief in such a creator and an infallible doctrine can lead to a more chaotic and dark world in many cases.

‘Hand Of The Divine‘ was written about the Rubio murders that took place in Brownsville, Texas in 2003. These murders occurred as a result of a man who believed that his three children were possessed by demons. The video for ‘Hand Of The Divine‘ follows along the theme of an insane creator, but does have some loose parallels with the Rubio murders.

It tells the story of ‘The Binding of Isaac’ that can be found in the texts of the Abrahamic religions. This story finds god demanding Abraham to sacrifice his son as an offering, proving his love and obedience. An insane and criminal act by modern standards and law. The story is portrayed a bit loosely, taking interpretations from multiple texts.”

01. “Awakening”
