"Lilith" Single Review
The track opens with an intro that takes a bit to get going. It's slow, brooding and builds a darker, more Grunge like tone for the first minute and a half. The track then barrels full speed ahead with a crunch and vocals that'll get the live crowd moshing and singing along to. Later on, the track goes off the rails and gets more circle pit like with its riffs and harsher vocals. The guitar work on spot on and helps elevate the track even further. The five minute long track packs quite the punch and shows the natural progression that the band has gone through.

Dark Agenda up the ante on what they bring to the Metal scene.

"Dark Agenda" EP Review
The EP starts off with "Alone" with an almost early Metallica sound. The screeching guitars and the more traditional Metal sound welcome the listener to that throwback era nicely. The guitar solo later in the track is excellent. "Outer Skies" keeps the breakneck pace moving along at a full clip. The track goes all in and shows its vocals and instrumentation is hard, heavy and catchy. "See You In Heaven" slows things down a bit as its a more emotional track. The more melodic track will bring out the lighters for sure at a live setting and really tugs at the listeners heartstrings. "Vampire" brings back the upbeat energy of the opening track with a shotgun blast of Metal to your earlobes. The track is fast, unrelenting and features a subtle guitar solo that adds a layer of depth. "Will You See Me" features melodic guitar work that's top notch and memorable. The driving riffs, melodic vocals and toe tapping pace has this track screaming single loudly. The closing track "Genesis" saves the heavy of the heavy tracks for last. This is the track that will induce mosh pits as soon as someone hears it.

Dark Agenda show enough grit and confidence that makes their EP shine bright.
