Rust N' Roll
Although known these days for being based in Los Angeles, California, Rusty Eye trace their roots to the mid-'90s and Mexico City. After a slew of demo releases and live recordings, this is their debut album proper. Groove-laden, you can hear Mr Rust's different influences at play here - early Maiden, garage punk, elements of early cross-over (DRI, Suicidal Tendencies...), among others. Those familiar with the way in which the band progressed subsequently will notice a looser vibe at work here, not to mention a different vocal approach. But the key elements of Mr Rust's visions are here to be found - existential nightmares, death and gore - as is the hint of his musical ambitions which were to be realised just a few years later.
