Mark Jansen comments: “’Faceless Spies’ is the last track on the album and deals about governments spying on their people, not only for safety reasons but also in order to control them.”
»Antagonise« is featuring 11 tracks, and will be released on January, 31st 2014 via Nuclear Blast. The band explains, that “it’s about the current state of the world in which a small group of elites have all the power and try to dominate humanity. The tension is rising and the outcome yet unknown.”
