Formed in 2003, the Cypriot rockers were fully determined right from the start. Truly-from-the-heart and no BS melodic Heavy Metal with classic rocking passages is their absolute passion as one can easily determine with just one listen. Enthusiastic and passionate about everything R.U.S.T.X do, their upcoming 3rd album “Center of the Universe” will unquestionably convince old school lovers that they do mean serious business.
The level of musicianship in “Center of the Universe” is beyond perfect and the band sounds completely harmonious and in perfect unity. Not surprising since, not only all band members are seasoned musicians, but all four are siblings (!), 3 brothers and their sister, who apart from their instruments, they all share vocal duties! A most definite (and amazing) family affair!
Legendary radio producer Robert Camassa, who pens a foreword on the album, couldn’t have put it better: “This album is like a swiss clock, ticking along nicely, never skipping a beat. This is a band that has paid its dues and has come roaring back with a killer album. If R.U.S.T.X should ever need a blood transfusion it must be Heavy Metal+.”
Featuring a stunning cover artwork by the amazing Chris Achilleos (best known for his painting of the heroine Taarna, on 1981’s “Heavy Metal” animated movie poster), the album also features guest appearances by Paolo Nipa (DARK QUARTERER) and Andrea Ramacciotti (DEADLY TIDE). The CD version features 2 bonus tracks, one of which is a cover of the classic “Band on the Run” (Paul McCartney and Wings).
