Canada's most exciting female fronted export, The Agonist, strikes back with their second full-length offering, Lullabies For The Dormant Mind, which combines shredding leads with pure technicality, topped off with the glamorous Alissa White-Gluz's brutal growls, as well as dramatically melodic clean vocals, that take The Agonist to a new level of musical grandeur. It is extremely rare to find an up-and-coming metal band taking strong political stands, much less one that's led by a dominating, beautiful, edgy female. This quartet delivers introspective, scathing lyrics, and their debut album, Once Only Imagined, definitely caught people's attention.
