Aghora  


Aghora was formed by guitarist Santiago Dobles and gained some fame with its 1999 self-titled release as it featured the rhythm section of Sean Malone and Sean Reinert, of the then-recently-disbanded Cynic. Aghora, the album, is an intriguing fusion/metal/rock album, featuring smooth melodic vocals from Danishta Rivero, excellent guitarwork from two guitarists with differing backgrounds (one, Dobles, seems more jazz/fusion-based, the other, Charlie Ekendahl, metal-based), and exactly the masterful rhythm section work that one would expect from the Cynic Seans. There is quite a bit of variety here, the band is quite willing to explore different moods and styles. By the time of the followup Formless in 2006 the lineup had changed greatly, and the recent lineups no longer feature the Cynic Seans.
