Formerly known as Heinous, Aghori is a thrash metal band founded in 2000 by singer Dustin Keimig and drummer Seth Roscamp, while both were still in high school.
“It’s basically about not being afraid to be an outsider,” says Keimig. “It’s about refusing to follow life’s prescriptions.”
In 2011, the band won the Project Independent North American Ballot, to become the 2011 Project Independent North American Featured Artists Of The Year.
