Antagonist AD’s music and message could be best described as ‘modern hardcore with old school ethics’. It is raw aggression at its purest and sincerest – not watered down or compromised in any way. Harnessing the frantic intensity of hardcore and the heavy, abrasive sounds of early metalcore, Antagonist AD’s infectious sound is sure to leave a lasting impact.
Lyrically the band speaks of the cancerous nature of western culture, the infectiousness of apathy, its symptoms & consequences, and the exploitation of animals across the world, for pleasure, science, fashion or food. With topics ranging from social and political commentary to brutally honest self-retrospect and analysis, Antagonist AD are full of venom, conviction & passion. Still screaming, still fighting for change.
