Pillars of Hercules began almost 4 years ago as a studio project between Marcus Terrazas and Jason Edelstein. They hit the stage on April 26th 2012 with their first live appearance at The Avalon in Santa Clara with various members from different bands. Shortly after, they made a more permanent line up with Keyhan Moini and Michael Rubino from the Santa Cruz Progressive Metal act "Silly Creature". Ever since, Pillars of Hercules have been striving to make music unheard of before in the local scene. Fusing instrumental metal, electronic grooves and thundering breakdowns, Pillars Of Hercules is making waves in the scene.
