History

These Mexicans have been around since at least 1989 and changed monikers in 1993. The band is influenced by both heavy metal and death metal sounds and the singer's name should not be construed as a pro-Christian message. Nihilist Passion features 5 studio and 9 live with the latter songs recorded during the 1998 The Tour Of The Cursed.

Reviews

AGONY LORDS - NIHILIST PASSION - X-RATED
Formed out of the ashes of death metal band Ripping Flesh, Mexico's Agony Lords probably mislead many into believing they still are a death metal entity given the band moniker, album title and record company's information sheet asserting the same. In fact, Agony Lords are a heavy metal band with rather gruff vocals and the tendency for more progressive/ fusion interludes - probably a harbinger of things to come. the album at hand is a live records including no less than six studio tunes show casing the Mexicans. What is lacking is a good sound, with the studio tracks particularly under-dubbed. Nevertheless there are quite a few original riffs here and as an underground curiosity with an interesting cover art this is worth some investigation. - Ali "The Metallian"
