The development of Evestus started in 2003 as a totally personal project. With no compromise and no surrender to the laws of composing. It was nothing more than self indulgence.
In 2004 however, Evestus got signed to Dtrash records with his first release “Destiny in Life”. A collection of works originally put together for close friends and family. The label however expected more from Evestus and so in 2006 a concept album “Wastelands” was released. Influenced by the bestseller PC game “Fallout 2”. “Wastelands” got 7.5/10 from “Terrorizer” and 7/10 from Virus Magazine.
“This is Dramacore!”
After the huge success of “Wastelands”, and turning down hundreds of requests to play live, Evestus decided to create something colossal. To create a band and an album that had plenty of everything todays industrial and alternative music lacks - balls and originality.
“This Is Dramacore” is a whole concept that Evestus has been building since 2006 - The Music, The Show and the Movement. Test shows were given in 2007, 2008 and 2009 to develop the live concept.
Sacrifice single and video released May 2008 - #12 on MTV Baltics Top 20 (6 weeks in the chart)
Enemy promo single and video released November 2008 - #4 on MTV Baltics Top 20
By 2009, Evestus live band had been completed by two keyboard players, a drummer and a guitarist sharing stage with the manic composer and frontman Evestus.
In 2010 “This Is Dramacore” was released and received very good reviews from publications all over the world! The record granted Evestus a spot on the biggest Rock festival in Estonia, “Hard Rock Laager” as well as a deal with Mama Trash Promotions who will help spread the awareness of Dramacore!
Evestus is currently actively working on follow up to “This is Dramacore”!

Evestus says on his myspace page :
- “I’m tired of musicians trying to get rich and famous by selling me cheap and simple music that says nothing and sounds like a copy of a copy of a copy… Fuck you! I’m going to create something that makes you feel ashamed of ever calling yourself an artist! Music is art not handicraft! And I am an artist not Bob the fucking builder! Beware - I’m going to drown all of you.”
