Not to be confused with the Cyprus Metal Warriors, R.U.S.T. (short for: Rock Under The Sign Of Thunder) is a Romanian Heavy Metal-band, which was founded in 2004 in the capitol Bucharest. They have already released a demo (“The Beginning...”, 2007) and an EP (“Warriors Of Heaven”, 2009). On the last release there were featured already some of the album-tracks like “Sign Of The King” and “Fire Storm”. The band deliver excellent traditional Heavy Metal in mid and faster tempos based on solid riffing and excellent riffing. This is Teutonic Steel sure not for the weak ones. Listening to their stuff the early Manowar came into my mind and this is something more than a positive comment... do you agree? You can also add the epic acoustic parts, the obscure interludes, the great vocal performance -full of passion- and the powerful rhythm section as great elements of this records Some emphatic parts with violin are making the final results even more interesting.Well I will put it the simply way: every headbanger, who is interested in East-European Metal-bands and such exotic origins like that, should really check them out!
