CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE

Band:R.U.S.T.X.
Album:CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE
Label:PITCH BLACK RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:HEAVY METAL

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). For fans of: Scorpions | Deep Purple | Black Sabbath | Journey | Savatage | Riot | Crimson Glory

 

 

A DARK LAMENT

Band:MORTEM ATRA
Album:A DARK LAMENT
Label:PITCH BLACK RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:MELODIC DEATH/DOOM METAL

MORTEM ATRA, were formed in November 2011 in Limassol Cyprus and they describe their blend of melodic death/doom metal as an amalgamation of genres, a mixture of emotions . The main lyrical themes of the band s songs consist of internal struggles, aggression & depression, sensitivity as part of the human nature, dark stories and elements that can best be associated with fairy-tales. The band s upcoming debut album A Dark Lament will sooth the soul, while at the same time darken those inner feelings. The atmosphere that the melodic keyboard lines provide, along with the double bass drumming, heavy riffs and growling and clean vocals, in combination with female operatic vocals, will set listeners drifting into otherworldly emotions but always in good companion by some of their favourite metal genres, namely Melodic Death and Doom Metal. All blended into one magnificent arrangement. Special mention should be made to the band s fallen brother, Tasos Bratsos. In 2016 tragedy struck and Tasos passed away after losing the battle with cancer which he had fought bravely. He was in his early thirties at the time and apart from being an extremely talented drummer, he was always positive and highly energetic and undeniably the main driving force of the band. A Dark Lament has been in the making since then and it features his recorded drum parts. With the album now finally completed, the band is of course paying tribute to Tasos by dedicating it to his memory and legacy. For fans of: Moonspell | Candlemass | Paradise Lost | Crematory | Tiamat | My Dying Bride
