RUST

RUST

BandMetalRock

Drawing influences from old school and new rock/metal. Our all original music is Guitar oriented with solid vocals. Our material is memorable with melodic choruses and shredding guitar work. We have great stage presence and crowd interaction. We are always professional and come with low drama.

Biography

Our influences differ amongst us individually, but collectively range from the likes of Motley Crue, Ozzy, and Dokken to Megadeth, Pantera and Suicidal Tendancies....and Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, and Soundgarden to Foo Fighters, Everclear, and Tool.

OUR INDIVIDUAL INFLUENCES SPAN A MUCH BROADER SPECTRUM, which gives RUST its unique presence and sound.

'Rust' formed because we got together looking for some time away from the drudges of our lives to escape and do what we love best. Soon it became much more than a hobby, and the ever increasing awareness of the market becoming more and more saturated with death metal and black metal music, we decided it was time to bring back some of the good old style rock/metal that we grew up on. That's what makes us stand out from alot of the upcoming original acts out here today.

Lyrics

DEVINE INTERVENTION

Written By: LYRICS BY JOHN FERREIRA AND BARRY COUCH MUSIC BY:RUST

VERSE ONE:
AWOKE ON CALL STRETCHED MY NECK
GRABBED MY RUCK DID WHAT THEY SAID
SPREAD A WEDGE A MOVEMENT TO KILL
THIS IS TELLING ME, IT'S ABOUT TO GET REAL

CHORUS:
MY FINGER'S ON THE TRIGGER
ARE THOSE THE SHADOWS I SEE
ONLY SOUND THAT I'M HEARING
IS BEATING INSIDE ME
THERE I WAS WITH A GUN TO MY HEAD
WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME
MAYBE THIS TIME I'LL BE DEAD!

VERSE TWO:
I'M ON LINE, HURRY UP AND WAIT
FEAR CONCEALS MY GROWING HATE
I'M READY TO GO DO WHAT I'M TRAINED
LOCKED AND LOADED HERE COMES THE PAIN!

CHORUS:
THERE I WAS WITH A GUN TO MY HEAD
WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME
MAYBE THIS TIME I'LL BE DEAD!
I'LL BE DEAD! I'LL BE!

VERSE THREE:
FEAR IS DECEPTION WHEN LICENSED TO KILL
THE PAIN THAT YOU FEEL IS INTENSE
EVERY SOLUTION YOU HEAR IS THE SAME
DECISIONS THE CHOICE IT'S EMMENCE
ACTIONS ARE SEARCHING THE WORDS FAR AWAY
NOW YOU HAVE FALLEN TO ME!

VERSE FOUR:
THE SCENE IS HOT, THE BLOOD IS SPILLED
NEXT TARGETS UP, DROP AT WILL
THE DIE ARE CAST, NO ROOM FOR FEAR
ALL ALONE, BUT MANY ARE NEAR

CHORUS:
MY FINGERS ON THE TRIGGER
ARE THOSE THE SHADOWS I SEE
ONLY SOUND THAT I'M HEARING
IS BEATING INSIDE ME
THERE I WAS WITH A GUN TO MY HEAD
WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME
MAYBE THIS TIME, I'LL BE DEAD!
I'LL BE DEAD! I'LL BE!

FEAR IS DECEPTION WHEN LICENSED TO KILL
THE PAIN THAT YOU FEEL IS INTENSE
EVERY SOLUTION YOU HEAR IS THE SAME
DECISIONS THE CHOICE IT'S EMMENCE!

DEVINE INTER -------VEN-TION!!

FREEDOM

Written By: LYRICS: JOHN FERREIRA MUSIC: RUST

VERSE ONE:
WAR!!
WHAT'S THE PRICE FOR FREEDOM
IT'S AIN'T FOR FREE
IF IT'S WORTH FIGHTING FOR
THEN IT'S FOR ME
THROUGH THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS
THAT WE'VE BEEN
IS THIS THE PATH CHOSEN
IF SO I AM IN

VERSE TWO:
WAR!!
WHAT'S THE PRICE FOR FREEDOM
YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
ONLY TIME WILL TELL US
WHICH WAY IT'LL GO
YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME
THAT WE'RE IN A F***ING WAR
YOU WON'T EVER GET IT
TILL THEIR LIVING ON OUR SHORES

CHORUS:
DENIAL AND THE HATRED
YOU'LL NEVER SEE IT MY WAY
YOU NEVER WILL UNTIL IT'S DONE
ALL THE BLOOD SHED AND THE WEEPING
LIVES LOST, NEVER FADE AWAY
DONT YOU KNOW, THIS IS WAR

VERSE THREE:
WHAT'S THE PRICE FOR FREEDOM
IT'S AIN'T FOR FREE
THE SACRIFICE THAT THEY'VE MADE
FOR YOU AND ME
WHAT'S THE PRICE FOR FREEDOM
BOW YOUR HEADS
AMERICAN HEROES
TIME TO HONOR YOUR DEAD

CHORUS:
DENIAL AND THE HATRED
YOU'LL NEVER SEE IT MY WAY
YOU NEVER WILL UNTIL IT'S DONE
ALL THE BLOOD SHED AND THE WEEPING
LIVES LOST, NEVER FADE AWAY
DONT YOU KNOW, THIS IS WAR

VERSE FOUR:
WHAT'S THE PRICE FOR FREEDOM
TIMES AT HAND
AMERICAN BLOODSHED
IN A FOREIGN LAND
WHAT'S THE PRICE YOU TELL ME
OUR HONORS AT STAKE
BETTER FIGHT FOR FREEDOM
FIGHT UNTIL IT'S TOO LATE

Discography

Although it was our freshman attempt at writing music together for the first time, our 4 song demo CD "Let it Rust" , has been well received, and we are presently in the process of recording a full length CD for release in late '09-early '10.

Our four songs are getting play time on internet radio and over the airwaves.

Set List

Our set typically consists of 10 songs.
Pain, Freedom, Hollow, Never Again, Strut, Cast Out, We All Know, Face Me, I Am The Man, Devine Intervention.
This is about an hour of music considering crowd interaction. Of course we have a condensed set as well.
