Phestur began life in early spring of 1999. Early on the revolving doors of line up changes was a constant spin until the right fit for that time was fullfilled. By mid-2000 the final line up that would carry the band for the next 6 years was complete. The early years of Phestur took on a life of it\'s own. The band was full on grunge/punk, and hit the stages unrelentlessly from southern Ohio to Canada putting in an average of 100+ shows a year. In that time the band also released several discs including 3 full length and as many \'teasers\' and a selected hits album. \'Phestur\' released in early 2000, \'Fujita\'s Pad\' came along in the fall of 2000, \'Here it Comez\' released in late 2001, and \'Phestur 3\' in early 2003. In mid 2003 the band signed a one album deal with Sonic Wave International putting out their 3rd. Full length album \'Phestur 3\' but renaming the album Phestur-Downtown and Underground. This album earned the band 2 Grammy considerations for nomination. \'Jaded Me\'-best hard rock performance, and the album \'Downtown and Underground\'-best rock album. Just to be considered was a huge step for the band. In early 2006 the band\'s line up changed once again. This opened up new doors and set the stage for the biggest advance in the band\'s sound. The writing formula is still unmistakenly \'Phestur\' but with the addition of another guitar, the sound has reached a whole new level. Recording of the band\'s 4th album - Fine\' Pompeii began in the summer of 2007. The band decided to do this album all \'in house\'. No use of any studio was the set in stone order for this album. The band utilized the modern technologies that were now affordable and began a long learning process of trial and error which then stretched into an 8 month ordeal. Though the learning curve was lengthy, the whole process became fun and without having to watch the clock and scrape for hourly charge fees the band was able to be very creative and this is evident on Fine\' Pompeii. Recording for the band\'s 5th album \'Impact\' also wrapped up in late spring of 2008 and it\'s set for a release in 2009.
