Like a twisted lovechild of Trent Reznor and Al Jourgensen, producer and frontman OTT EVESTUS’ blending of bouncing rock sound with future-noir synths and distorted vocals hits you like a bag of bricks.
Intense, emotional and engaging, Evestus takes the stage like every show was his last one.
Having toured with the likes of MINISTRY, YOUTH CODE and HOCICO, aside from numerous headlining tours, EVESTUS has already reached the fans of industrial music in Europe, Russia and UK.
With their song «Welcome To My World», EVESTUS was one of the 10 finalists in the Estonian Eurovision Pre-Contest, Eesti Laul, in 2018. Also the shock-rocker Ott Evestus was chosen to be the spokesperson for Estonia on Eurovision, making quite the waves announcing Estonian votes at the worlds biggest music event to over 200 million people on Live TV.
In 2019 Evestus signed with UK label Syndicol Music, released a furious surprise EP titled “Post 18 Depression”, had an opening track on the legendary <PiG> remix album “Stripped and Whipped”, just released a music video for their Tears for Fears cover “Mad World” and are currently working on their next album with producer ADE FENTON, best known for his work on GARY NUMAN albums “Splinter”,“Savage”, etc. The new album “All Goes Black” is due to be released this autumn.
“Evestus is a tenacious, brazened and talented composer. You will be dazzled by his originality, overwhelmed by his mystery, and mesmerized by his musical diversity” (Cyrus Rhodes, musesmuse.com)
Evestus' often distorted vocals are accompanied by massive bass-lines and broken beats tied together with grinding synths, sizzling guitars and orchestrated backdrops making an electro-industrial rock band that has been noted for it's aggressive and theatrical live performances and unique approach toward songwriting, "bringing to the table a lot of musical variety and a lot of unpredictability" (Cyrus Rhodes, musesmuse.com). Evestus straddles a wide range of genres, "creating music that is as aggressive as it is accessible, full of
malevolence as well as melody" (Re:Gen Mag).
MTV Baltics perhaps said it best, describing Evestus' sound as
"Symphonic Orchestra scoring a fight between Marilyn Manson and The Prodigy."
