WHAT’S WHAT: A product of Mexico City, Mexico, RUSTY EYE are the epitome of hard work in the music business. With a “make it or break it” attitude, the three piece could have gone anywhere when they left Mexico, but they went straight for the throat of the Heavy Metal scene in America and claimed Hollywood, California as base of operations. Nobody puts RUSTY EYE in a corner, meaning that you can’t slap a label on this band and lump them in with anybody else. The current lineup, consisting of Mr. Rust (bass/vocals), Miss Randall (drums/vocals) and Baron Murtland (guitars) broke the mold with the release of Stendhal Syndrome (2007), and followed strong with the impossible to wear out Possessor (2009), all on their own imprint Epoché Records. Constant work has earned them the respect of metal fans the world over, and also the love of critics in both the music and horror world, as they have done things the old school way, bypassing all of the bullshit and devoting themselves to standing out by writing and playing the gnarliest music possible. Now a certified legend in the Hollywood scene, RUSTY EYE have taken to the legendary Rainbow to record and unleash upon a new live album upon us. Live at The Rainbow MMX is 70-odd minutes of succulent metal, tinged with punk rock, including all the platters that matter from the fifteen-plus career of these DIY heroes. If this band isn’t already one of your favorites, they damn well need to be. (Bubbs Harris)

Kiss Army Warehouse, to Kiss nerds what Craigslist is to prostitute-slaughtering serial killers, have an issue of LA-based music paper Rock City for sale on their site, due to the fact that the issue (dated March 2006) carries a large Kiss article and a copy of one of Paul Stanley’s awful self portrait paintings on its cover. But also featuring on the cover are Rusty Eye, the horror metal band formed in Mexico in 1995 who later relocated to Hollywood.
Now, this could easily stack up as just another cool piece of memorabilia for the band members to pick on in their twilight years, yet there is a greater evil at work….in a good way of course. Continue reading

Yeah, so I’ve said this before, but I can’t say it enough: Rusty Eye is one of the coolest horror-themed bands working today, to the point of redefining the whole concept of “horror metal.” Every aspect of their music – songwriting, performing style, production and visual presentation, the whole deal – reflects the same passion for all things macabre that you FEARnet fiends share. But all that would be wasted if they weren’t also a technically solid, entertaining and insanely heavy band. The sonic proof’s all in there, evolving with each new release and proving that the LA-based trio isn’t just some Fulci-obsessed garage combo. Now Rusty Eye have released a new live record chronicling their April 2010 performance at the legendary Rainbow Bar & Grill, and I got to spend some quality ear-time with the album. Read on and I’ll drop some knowledge on ya… Continue reading

While Lemmy is Away… RUSTY EYE will play. As we’ve been carrying on about this week, Lemmy will be at Club Nokia tonight to be deservedly feted for all he has done to make this world a more tolerable place. But while all that fun is happening, back at his second home RUSTY EYE will be putting on a two hour set on the second floor of the Rainbow Room. Yes, two hours – that’s no joke. They will be recording the show and playing tracks from Rust n’ Roll, Stendhal Syndrome and Possessor. It all starts at nine and will be followed at 11:30 by the Hells Belles Burlesque show. We’re guessing Lemmy will return to the ranch in time for that. The cover is just $5.
