Read the official announcement:
R.U.S.T.X is the continuation of R.U.S.T. and they welcome you to a never ending metal party.
R.U.S.T. formed in 2003 (known then as Flames in Ice) with the purpose of playing Traditional 80’s Heavy Metal following the footsteps of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Warlord, Savatage, Stormwitch, Riot, etc.
R.U.S.T. have been a live active band in the island of Cyprus and Europe for many years now. Some of the highlights during their career where opening performances for legendary heavy metal bands such as DARK QUARTERER,PRAYING MANTIS,SABBATON,OMEN, TOKYO BLADE, PAUL DI ANNO, MARAUDER, ROSS THE BOSS & SCOTT COLUMBUS, BONFIRE and also participating in festivals in Greece like UP THE HAMMERS and ROCK YOU TO HELL festival. In addition, they are proud coorganizers (along with Hardraw and the rest of the P.O.T.N. Crew) of the annual Power of the Night Metal Festival. And of course, delivering live performances whenever possible!
In the summer of 2007 R.U.S.T. released their first EP at the 2nd “Power of the Night Festival”. In 2010 their first single, Metal Child, was ready to be released, and at the 6th Power of the Night Festival in 2011, “Forged in the Fire of Metal” was officially out. R.U.S.T.’s first full length album. In November 2012 the first official video clip, METAL CHILD, was released.
Through the years R.U.S.T became known for their powerful songs and energetic stage performance, with unique acts that include motorcycles, flaming anvils, the rising of the phoenix, smashing guitars, and even theatrical acts on stage.
During 2014, Tasos (Vocals) and Adamos (guitars) had to unfortunately leave the band due to personal reasons, thus creating a pause time for R.U.S.T. That’s when R.U.S.T.X were born, consisting of George, Panayiotis and Johnny Xanthou, along with a new band member addition, Katerina Xanthou. Katerina’s addition marks a new era for the new born hard and heavy metal band, since all of R.U.S.T.X members are siblings.
R.U.S.T.X released in the summer of 2015 in the Power of the night festival the EP Destiny Riders with three brand new songs .The band has plans for the summer of 2016 to record a new studio album. Stay Tuned.
