Home / Biography / Aghora


An extremely unique and unusual rock act, Aghora was initially conceived in 1995 simply by guitarist/programmer Santiago Dobles, while he and initial co-conspirators Maximum Dible (guitar) and Andy Deluca (bass) were attending the Berklee College of Music. Arrive 1997, Dobles relocated to Miami, Florida, where he recruited his sister, vocalist Danishta Rivero, and guitarist Charlie Ekendahl, and some years (and demos) later on, the legendary tempo section of intensifying death metallic pioneers Cynic, bassist Sean Malone and drummer Sean Reinert (also ex-Death). Meshing the second option organizations’ penchant for compositional inventiveness with Dobles’ jazz fusion-based playing and Rivero’s obvious, melodic tone of voice, Aghora documented a self-titled debut recording in 1999. Malone, Reinert, and Ekendahl quickly shifted to other tasks, but despite announcing substitutes in Alan Goldstein (bass) and Richard Komatz (drums), Aghora offers yet to create any songs.
