Rusty Eye – Possessor (9,5/10) – USA – 2009

by Jonathan “Hell’s Unicorn”

Originality is the rarest of all commodities in today’s world of music. Heavy metal affords a bit more freedom to experiment than other styles, but finding something genuinely fresh and inviting is still largely a challenging task within this side stream art form.

So, let’s make a stab at definition here: how does horror-soaked-tech-thrash ‘n’ roll sound? It rolls off the tongue beautifully doesn’t it? No? Oh well. “Awesome! Thrash ‘n’ roll…never heard that one before,” chuckles Mr Rust, the Eye’s bassist / vocalist, in unison with drummer / vocalist Miss Randall. “It has always been difficult to label our style because no one else is doing what we are doing. We’ve given up on coining any terms and will let others decide for themselves. We are definitely metal, that’s a fact!” Continue reading
