"RESURRECTION ROAST" THE AGONIST CUSTOM DARK ITALIAN BLEND
Days before the world wept, there was an elixir of depth so dark, so bold that it could only be conjured by Blakhart Coffee and The Agonist. "Resurrection Roast" is that said beast.
Stemming from an alliance Brewed in Blood with Vocalist Extraordinaire, Vicky "Killer V" Psarakis, Blakhart and The Agonist took the forging of their accord to the next level.
We literally scoured the 4 corners of the globe to blend our most extreme Italian Roast to date. Curating from around the world and the travel experience of the artist we drew inspiration from Africa, South America, Central America and Indonesia to craft this one of a kind spiritual essence virtually guaranteed to resurrect the dead!!! *(not actually guaranteed)
"My first sip of Resurrection Roast felt as if I was standing in a dark venue after hours- and then the lights and PA speakers just suddenly came on full blast, all at once. Like if someone turned on a spotlight, but behind my eyeballs. I am a very picky coffee drinker and I can proudly say that one sip of this coffee will transform you from cadaver to headbanger."
About the brew:
Resurrection Roast is an extra dark Italian roast. It has all of the punch, kick and bite that you would expect from a rabid unchained demon. The time spent in flames only added to the depth and angst of this liquid weapon. It's not for the weak or those with a delicate palate. Drinkers be warned!!!

Canadian extreme melodic death metal juggernaut THE AGONIST took the world by storm with the release of their bludgeoning 2019 full-length, “Orphans” – garnering fantastic critical acclaim and even a revered Juno nomination.
With that undeniable skill in tow, THE AGONIST takes another bold step in their musical and lyrical progression with “Days Before The World Wept”. Inspired by real life experiences, it explores a grim, conceptual tale of greed, gluttony, confusion, pain, redemption and hope enveloped in a new level of aggression and cohesive, technical prowess.
Opening track “Remnants In Time” begins ominously with ghostly piano lines performed by lead vocalist Vicky Psarakis before slamming into a double bass, one-woman choir explosion rife with needle-precision guitar work by deft guitarists Danny Marino and Pascal Jobin. The death metal burner brings non-stop energy throughout, showcasing Psarakis’ multifaceted vocal attack as she nails searing highs, guttural lows and magical clean passages in one fell swoop.
The onslaught continues with the rhythmic soundscapes of cry for salvation “Immaculate Deception”, blending fast paced, aggressive verses with haunting, melodic choruses.
“Resurrection” reaches into blackened territory before Psarakis splits it wide open – annihilating with her pinpointed vocal attack calling for rebirth. In addition to Psarakis, Marino and Jobin, dexterous drums from Simon McKay and the bass attack of Chris Kells lead the listener through metallic melodic passages topped with emotive poetry before breaking into the next track…
“Feast On The Living” stands tall with rollercoaster clean and gritty vocals, rapid fire drums and blazingly precise guitar leads and solos, cementing the track as one of the most technically meticulous of the entire offering.
Shifting into fifth gear, title track “Days Before The World Wept” brings it all home, beginning with a beckoning acoustic introduction before roaring in with intense blast beats, polyrhythms and bellowing screams.
THE AGONIST pulls out all the stops, showcasing their chops in all directions with breakneck instrumentation and staggeringly superb vocal approaches. Soaring through a kaleidoscope of blistering metal mastery and hopeful lyrical dramatism, the opus dominates as one of the most impressive works of the band’s catalog.
Produced by Christian Donaldson (Beyond Creation, Cryptopsy, Despised Icon), “Days Before The World Wept” packs several albums worth of skill, songwriting prowess and melancholic lyrical mastery into just five tracks – leaving no stone unturned and listeners clamoring for more!
