Despite deeming themselves progressive, the members of AGHORA appeal to those of the death-metal old school, those who like their guitar dirges irony- and humor-free. Lead vocalist Diana Serra very seriously suggested the staff at this newspaper wasn't heavy enough to fathom AGHORA, saying, "Perhaps you should send someone from a magazine that's based on hard rock/metal and have them write about our performance." The closest person to that description that guy Riki Rachtman from the original version of MTV's Headbangers Ball wasn't available, so you'll just have to check out AGHORA yourself.
AGHORA performs Saturday, August 12, at the Roxy Theatre, 1645 SW 107th Ave, Miami. The show begins at 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, $9 at the door. Call 305-226-0030 or visit www.myspace.com/aghora for more information.
