The Agonist release lyric video for ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth’

Canadian metallers THE AGONIST have released a brand new lyric video!

The video is for the track, The Man Who Fell To Earth, which is taken from their latest album, Five (read our review here) which was released back in September.

Watch the official lyric video for The Man Who Fell To Earth here:

Speaking about the video, guitarist Danny Marino says, “when the news broke this year of David Bowie‘s death it hit me pretty hard. Especially because of how his last album Blackstar turned into more than just a new record but a swan song of an artist still breaking boundaries even today. I had an instrumental that I knew was outside the box for THE AGONIST and felt I could make this a Bowie dedication. I used a lyric writing method called “cut-ups” that I had heard Bowie himself used. It is when you find books or magazines surrounding the topic you are writing about and cut out individual words, and rearrange them until it starts to form a story. I used album reviews of his last album that were written before it was known he was dying. In the end the result comes out as a eulogy to be read at his funeral. I’m really happy with the dark vibe we achieved in studio with this one”.
