Kaustik is a heavy metal band from Southern California generating exceedingly heavy, hook filled music influenced by numerous genres including: classical music, classic rock, jazz, punk, and almost every metal sub-genre from old to new. This amalgamation of diverse ideas gives them a fresh, unique sound to be enjoyed by music fans from all walks of life.
Kaustik has released a self-titled album in 2011, and an EP, entitled “Forged in the Bones of Our Freedom”, in 2014. In October 2016 Kaustik toured with thrash legends D.R.I., accompanied by the release of their politically fueled compilation EP, “Fuck Politics, Listen to Kaustik” on Black Voodoo Records, which includes music from both previous releases as well as two songs from their upcoming full length slated to be out in the fall of 2017.
Kaustik has played countless shows touring the country, most notably the southwest, performed at major music festivals such as Mayhem and Knotfest, and has shared the stage with some of music’s most legendary artists such as: Judas Priest, Rob Zombie, Korn, Nile, Twisted Sister, Gwar, and many more. Kaustik is now a prominent band who metal fans are talking about, are excited to see, and are anxious to hear what’s next.
