"If it was not for a few sons of a bitch, egotists, hypocrites and liars, the world would be an authentic paradise". This is the motto of the group Antagònics, created in 2007 and presenting themselves with a debut album which is an authentic declaration of intentions of their musical discourse, expanding alternative rock with nu-metal, a touch of funk-rock and a bit of pop-rock. Verbal, with direct lyrics, simple and without mincing words, full of criticism and social vindication.
Their influences include alternative rock from the 90s as well as Basque radical rock bands. This quintet from Barcelona has brought together in Work in Progress... the intensity of Red Hot Chilli Peppers' funk in What's Going On? the power of grunge guitars in Freedom, or rhythms inherited from the most classical Anglo-Saxon rock, in Home de Palla and T'estimo Tant, this latter track being a sincere tribute to Pau Riba and Sisa, who gave intellectual although not stylistic inspiration to the band.
Having taken part in festivals such as Trobadors i Joglars or Fusiònica and the international concerts of Solistes a l'Alta Ribagorça, their live concerts combine music and performances specially prepared for each occasion, alternating their strongest compositions (names such as Rage Against The Machine or Extremoduro come to my mind) with others of a more intimistic and acoustic nature.
In June 2009 launch their second album release Instint that is distributed including a DVD with two music videos of the songs Barcelona and Només Tu directed by David Raya and Jason Acero as a director of photography. Also includes the making off and two bonus tracks with acoustic versions. This album is available at many online stores: iTunes, Amazon, Napster, CD Baby and more.
