Sometimes I feel like I've just heard something so many times before that it barely keeps my attention. Sort of like the 80s, when there were a handful of good Hair Metal bands, and a billion others that you couldn't tell apart. They all sound the same. Unfortunately the same thing happens in the Death Metal scene. Bands leech off what has already worked, duplicate it, and presto! Instant Death Metal.
Antagony possess everything. A couple of growling vocalists, a decent group of riffers, and a plausible rhythm section. In fact, on DAYS OF NIGHT there are a few really nice riffs like the tunes 'Terror' and 'Exhale Her Poison', however nothing seems original or different from the 10,000 other Death Metal/Deathcore bands that have crossed my desk over the years.
Mixing Death Metal with some Hardcore/Deathcore is hardly original anymore, and quite frankly it's grown boring. Though Antagony seem like a talented group of players, they're hardly breaking ground here, just stuck in a trend that's pretty much over. Still, if this is your bag, then check it out. It's not a bad record, just an uninspired one.
