Rusty Eye proudly presents collaboration with solo artist Sergio Arau in his new musical phase.

IMG_0108cropSergio Arau is one of the most iconic personalities in Mexican Rock en Español. He was one of the founding members of the eighties seminal band “Botellita de Jerez” and has released 3 albums as a solo artist. Simultaneously, his talents go beyond music and has directed music videos, animations, and movies. He is best known for directing the film “A Day Without a Mexican”.

Sergio Arau saw Rusty Eye play live and thought it would be a good match to incorporate their sound with his blend of Hard Rock, Metal and Punk with traditional Mexican Folk Music. The whole trio has joined as his backing band.

Jorge Herrera, from the famous “Hermanos Herrera” joined as a multi-instrumentalist. He plays a wide array of traditional Mexican folk instruments such as: Huapango violin, Jarana Jarocha, Accordion, and the Requinto Jarocho (to name a few).

The band has recorded a single called “No Me Late la Tira (Ni me Latirá)” which roughly translates to “I Don’t Like the Cops (and Never will). They plan on recording a new Sergio Arau solo album and will be playing shows soon.

Rusty Eye welcomes this new project as it brings back drummer Miss Randall, together with bassist Mr. Rust and guitarist Baron Murtland. A brand new Rusty Eye studio album in English is in talks as well.

Power Play Magazine UK. “Saca el Cobre” Review


Rusty Eye are a band in transition, with this being a parting album for female drummer Miss Randall, who also shares vocal duties. “Saca el Cobre”, or to give it its English name “Bring Out The Copper”, is a homage to Mexican metal. These Hollywood residents give us their take on eight tracks that range from the utterly fantastic “Cara de Pizza” to the English spoken last track, “Mr. Cannibal”. What you get in between is some really good dual vocal songs in the native Mexican tongue, taken to the absolute extreme of the heavy scale for me.
Whilst the production is very crisp, it lends itself to the ferocity of the music and really brings home the power that these guys are going for. It is a short set, with only eight songs on here, but it hits you right where it wants to, and as the meaning of the album title says, it “shows its true self”.

Rusty Eye at the Down n Out Review

Metal Assault

By Andrew Bansal

May 26th 2014, Down & Out Bar, Los Angeles CA: Based out of Atlantic City NJ, metal quartet Hammer Fight are currently on a US tour and made their way to Los Angeles to headline Metal Monday at the Down & Out Bar in DTLA last night, along with local support acts Panties and Rusty Eye. Put together by prolific local metal promoters Church Of The 8th Day and Thee Static Age, the show promised an entertaining Monday night out for supporters of the metal underground in the area.

Hollywood’s very own horror-themed progressive metal trio Rusty Eye originated in Mexico City in 1995 and transitioned to becoming an LA band a decade later while still keeping their roots intact. Of late, they went through some lineup instabilities but are now getting back into the groove by playing the occasional local gigs, with original drummer/vocalist Miss Randall returning on the kit. Here they played an 8-song set consisting of three covers off of the latest Rusty Eye album ‘Saca El Cobre’, their all-covers tribute to a selection of Mexican music groups/artists, along with a few of their original tunes including a Spanish version of ‘Mr. Cannibal’. The covers are clearly targeted towards their Spanish-speaking fan base and for people unfamiliar with the original artists or the language, it’s a little hard to follow these tunes and takes a bit of getting used to. So for me, the original Rusty Eye tunes still stood out as the more enjoyable parts of the set, specially ‘Mr. Cannibal’ wherein Mr. Rust’s bass line is strongly reminiscent of Iron Maiden’s Steve Harris, and ‘Mondo Cane’ in which guitarist Baron Murtland gets to express himself fully as the band lays into some proggy jamming. Performance-wise, all three members were solid but it was clear to me that they can reach higher levels if they play on a more regular basis. Rusty Eye is undoubtedly an intriguing band in its own unique, weird ways, and it’s be good to see them back playing shows again.
