Neoteric Dawn started simply as an idea in Justin Smith's head: a band that doesn't concentrate solely on what is "in" or even trying to create something "no one's ever done before", but as a band that just plays the music they want. Inspired by bands like Opeth, TesseracT, Iron Maiden, etc. Justin met Seth Grunger after moving to El Paso, Texas. The two began writing almost instantly and started looking for other members to fill the gaps. After a while, Erwin Amezcua was able to fill the part of the second guitarist. Now, Neoteric Dawn is going to bring music to the people by any means necessary, not allowing anything to block their path.
