AGORA FORTE is a five-piece progressive rock band from the Twin Cities. The bandâs original lineup is comprised of local musicians with the shared interest of composing and performing challenging and sometimes unconventional songs. AGORA FORTE draws influence from a wide range of musical styles and bands, including such great and timeless acts as Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Rush, Opeth, Coheed and Cambria, Porcupine Tree, Tool, Ayreon, Muse, and countless others.
Since its formation, AGORA FORTE has set to work writing, arranging, and recording their own music. This has since culminated in the debut album, Monuments, released in Spring 2011. Presently, one can learn more about the band and preview the album at www.reverbnation.com/agoraforte.
With the completion of their full-length debut Monuments, AGORA FORTE is taking the music contained therein public and bringing a unique mixture of sounds and attitude to the stage. The band looks forward to the unique and exciting challenges that lie ahead as they strive to be not just a progressive rock band, but an ambassador for an often overlooked, mysterious, and rather misunderstood genre of music.
