Agony is a Colombian metal band, formed in Bogotá, Colombia in 1992. The band was founded by Alfonso Pinzón and Andrés Jaramillo, two college friends that shared a common interest in metal. A demo tape of the band's first songs, was quickly spread through Bogotá's metal fans in 1994. The band created a reputation of strong and fierce live shows, which was recorded in the first live album published by a Colombian band, Live All The Time in 1995, featuring two cover songs: Pantera's Strength Beyond Strength and Sepultura's Propaganda. First studio album entitled Millennium was recorded at Audiovision studios in Bogotá, released in 1996 and later re-released in 2006, with César Botero on vocals, Andrés Jaramillo and Carlos Marín on guitars, Carlos Reyes on bass, and Alfonso Pinzón on drums. Agony opened for several international bands in Colombia, including Testament in 1998. In 1999, the band relocated to Los Angeles, California, to record a new album and widen their fan base to worldwide level. Shortly after relocation, Reyes left the band and returned to Colombia. After the first show in American ground, at the famous Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood, and with Juanes filling in for Reyes on bass, Marín left the band. Second album Reborn was recorded at Cornerstone Recorders with producer Tom Fletcher, mixed by Rich Renken and released in 2002 on Sum Records. Agony went into hiatus in 2002, after Botero left the band, and reunited in 2007. In 2004, Jaramillo and Pinzón created Dia de los Muertos. Agony performed in the world's largest 'free of charge' rock festival Rock al Parque festival several times, headlining the metal day on its first editions, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 and 2002, this last one with Static-X's Tony Campos on bass, last time was in 2007 when they headlined the event alongside Brujeria. Third album The Devil's Breath, with Cello Dias on bass and mixed by Logan Mader was released online in 2009. Last show to date, was in Bogotá, December 6, 2009, alongside Venom.
