Death metal trailblazers THE AGONIST are thrilled to be nominated for a 2022 JUNO Award - Canada's most prestigious music award - in the “Metal/Hard Rock Album of the Year” category for their latest release, Days Before the World Wept, out now via Napalm Records! The 2022 JUNO Awards will broadcast and stream live on Sunday, May 15 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBC TV, CBC Gem, CBC Radio One, CBC Music, CBC Listen and globally at

Following yesterday's nominee announcement, the band offered:

"We are thrilled to learn that Days Before The World Wept was nominated for a JUNO Award! What can we say - what artist doesn't want their work to be recognized and appreciated? This was a very important release for us that will define us for years to come, and we're happy that it has made its mark on the metal world."

Inspired by real life experiences, fan and media acclaimed Days Before The World Wept explores a grim, conceptual tale of greed, gluttony, confusion, pain, redemption and hope enveloped in a new level of aggression and cohesive, technical prowess. 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.
