Antagonist A.D. are a vegan metallic hardcore band from New Zealand, formed in 2005.

Taking influence from mid-90’s and early-2000’s metalcore.

Known for their commentary on the apathetic ills of western culture, the band has doubled down on that message; holding nothing back lyrically, while pushing forward with a darker edge to their music, and the simple goal of opening minds to the ideas of a better way of living. From racial to animal to social justice, the band have solidified their beliefs, and now find themselves holding nothing back.
