In 2002 George and Panayiotis Xanthou, two brothers and their childhood friend, Adamos Adamou, decided to form a band. George was playing the bass, Panayiotis and Adamos the guitars. Finding a lead singer didn’t take too long as Tasos Karonias was in the same school with George. After jamming with a few drummers, Andreas Kallis took the place. “Flames in Ice” were born and performed their first gigs playing covers and some of their own material.

In the summer of 2004, Kallis had to join the army. As a result they had to come in contact with one of the drummers they met during their first search. The new drummer of the band was Achilleas B. Adamos had to go abroad (army training) for a couple of months . The band continued with only one guitar player for some live shows. In 2005, on Adamos return, the band decided to change their

R.U.S.T Forged In The Fire of Metal

Cyprus, not exactly a country you'll expect to find a band that plays Manowar, Judas Priest, or Iron Maiden style, but R.U.S.T's 'Forged In The Fire of Metal' is a shout-out to the world that the spirit of NWoBHM is alive and well in their country. The first track, 'The Thunder Rolls', is a homage to Maiden's harmonic style, the riffs are awesome, the passage from Verse to Chorus is perfectly done, all in all a great track. The second one, 'Metal Child', is pretty good as well, but from these two tracks, I get to a point that R.U.S.T has a little trouble in their singer. Tasos Karonias' vocal to me here, is a bit hollow and sounds weak, or more like a heavy metal karaoke if you ask me.

That's a let down considering the rhythm section, especially the guitars, are tight and nice. 'Phoenix In The Night', if sang by a better singer, could be a monster track, with a major highlight on its huge chorus. Nevertheless, that track with the closing title track, are two of my favorites. The latter is more of a Manowar style, but somehow should have been shorter.

I think R.U.S.T shows promise but the band should consider thinking twice on whether this formation should last or perhaps try to do some reshuffle and see how it goes. Tasos might need more practice to control his pitch and enhance his singing style, but I'm eager to listen to the next effort and hopefully it'll be much better and original than this.
