Coming from Southern California, Aestus is a metal band devoted to writing and playing quality music. It all started in the Summer of 2009, when Julian and Dakota met at a music camp in Los Angeles. They connected quickly with their mutual love for Lamb of God and Metallica. There, they wrote some of the current Trigger riffs. They jammed a few times between then and the Spring of 2010, but it was not until the Summer of 2010 that things became extremely serious.
