"A TOMB FOR THE HAUNTED"
Mexico's AGONY LORDS are back and better than ever. These guys have absent from the
scene for over a decade and have finally unleashed a new Death Metal masterpiece. These
guys originally started out back in 1989 under the name RIPPING FLESH. In 1993 they
changed their name to AGONY LORDS and then later they broke up. Then in 2008 they
reformed and in 2012 released their first new album "A TOMB FOR THE HAUNTED".
These guys don't play your typical sounding Death Metal music though, they play a clean
melodic style of Death Metal music with much more. They actually have a lot of elements
of New Wave Of British Heavy Metal mixed in with their sound. The music is super crisp,
clean and crystal clear. It has a lot of intricate and well thought out passages all through out.
It goes from fast paced blasting into a stylistic guitar shredding frenzy straight into a slow
melodic riff. The vocals tend to cross over all these styles as well. There are mid ranged
Death Metal growls mixed with mid ranged clean vocals as well as mid ranged almost
Thrash like vocals that border on Death vocals. These guys are amazing and put a different
twist on the Death metal genre that i don't think I have heard before. It's as if IRON
MAIDEN & JUDAS PRIEST merged with MERCYFUL FATE & IN FLAMES. This is
a very unique combo and they pull it off perfectly. If you want to hear one of the best bands
that Mexico has to offer than you need to get AGONY LORDS in your hands!!!
