January, 2001. Three guys from different bands and similar tastes looked at one another and asked: “why not?”. The three piece alternative rock band Rusty Project was born, aiming to mix and renew the member’s main influences: From 80s metal to Seattle’s grunge to nowaday’s metal and everything between. Defining harmony and originality as a top priority, the band started composing and playing in the local circuit.
July, 2002. The first demo album, project II, was released. Although it was not a pro recording, it achieved great response from, at least at the time, acclaimed music websites such as MP3.com and IUMA.com, reaching top10 on mp3.com’s genre rank for a long time.
September, 2004. Project III is out. Now with some road and studio baggage, the band could finally show what rusty project is all about. Solid songs with unique harmonies, well placed vocal lines, excellent execution. Albums were sold worldwide, mainly in North America and Europe. More than 500000 track downloads were done so far.
June, 2009. 4 years after their last release, the band gathered to rehearse and record their new independent project, with one thing in mind: Leave all commercial/producing stereotypes/cliches/deadlines and simply do what they wanted to do. One year and a half later, “Unite” was ready, with 21 songs - all of them produced by the band and 90% of all tracks recorded at the band’s own studio. “Unite” is by far the band’s most pretentious work to date and shows that rusty project has grown up in comparison to its last releases; harmonies are tight, guitar riffs are strong and present, vocal lines are sticky and well made/built. The Songs blend old school and modern rock influences with a prog touch, resulting in a singular and well produced album overall, which should please anyone who loves modern rock and good music.
Three years after the release of Unite, Rusty project rejoin forces to record their latest and most promising release to date, Project IV.
Project IV builds on their latest release with hard-charging tunes, crunchy guitar riffs and sharp vocals. Mixed by Enrico Fontana and Mastered by Justin Wise, rusty project still keep some of the prog rock influences found in unite but this time around the songs are more cohesive are straightforward.
The band has carefully chosen 11 songs, from breathtaking mellow tunes like "Resolutions" and "Sunny Days" to songs that will strike a nerve such as "Worst-Case Scenario" and "Just Like Sheep", proving they still know how to rock hard.
Rusty Project is: Elton Sobrinho/Drums, Enrico Fontana/Guitars, Lucas Lemke/Bass and Vocals.
