Biography

Bands named Agony:

1.) Agony, originally formed as Agoni in August 1984, was a swedish thrash metal band. Their first demo-tape titled “The Future Is Ours” was released in March 1986. A tour in Britain with swedish punkers Anti-Cimex, and a second demo-recording (“Execution of Mankind”) followed the same year, before changing name to Agony.
In 1987, the band obtained a record deal with the famous Music For Nations label, and released their full-length debut album, “The First Defiance”, in 1988. The music was similar to the early works of bands such as Exodus, Metallica and especially Testament. Sadly, it would also prove to be their last effort, as the band disbanded shortly afterwards.

2.) Agony, an important Death-Thrash Metal band from Bogotá (Colombia) burst out of the scene in 1992, when then-college students, Alfonso Pinzon (drums) and Andres Jaramillo (lead guitar) started playing together.
They released a demo tape in 1994, with all of the songs controversially written in English. The response to their demo, along with their energetic live shows helped attract a solid fan base. They later landed support slots for international acts such as Testament (USA) and A.N.I.M.A.L. (Argentina), as well as headlining the Rock Al Parque festival numerous times.

One of their shows was turned into a live album, Live All The Time. This release became one of the first live recordings released by a Colombian metal act. This release also featured new members, vocalist Cesar Botero and guitarist Carlos ‘Beto’ Marin (Pestilencia).
