The band experimented with Metal Rock and Power Metal among other genres to finally have the unique rock sound that Nagmah is now known for. The band was formed by Jose P. Calvo and Jose Soto and since 2005 the 4-piece band has stayed together with Mónica Villanueva on vocals and keyboards, Jose Soto on guitars, Jose P. Calvo on bass and Roy Ross on drums with guest musicians joining in on lead guitar.

Nagmah released their first album “Diva Mortis” in 2009. That same year, “El Maleficio del Lindero” from their debut album was included in a compilation called “Story from Heaven” which had top International metal bands from Brazil, France, Finland, and Italy.
