Hailing from Umeå, in norther Sweden, comes Carnal Agony. The name itself is derived from the feeling we want to convey with our music – especially the lyrics. The band was founded in 2011 when we've decided that we all have been away from music long enough and wanted to create something new. We are united inspiration-wise by the obvious classics, Iron Maiden and Metallica, but we all have our individual influences. A few of those include Iced Earth, Mercyful Fate, In Flames (yes, pre-Colony), Testament and Morbid Angel. Lyric wise, we find our muses in the spectrum from the dusty bookshelves of a 17th century library to our anger over how the political and religious climate is limiting our existence.
