Blazing Rust is a Russian band doing a respectable job of emulating early US Power Metal on their debut album, Armed to Exist. Strong vocals, twin guitars and chugging riffs flow freely through tracks like "Shimmering Dawn", "Time of the Brave" and "Under the Spell." Blazing Rust mixes up the tempo on tracks like "Witch" when they go from an almost Doom pace to stomping on the gas in time for the Maiden-esque twin leads. The lyrics aren't great but that's probably a language issue and should improve over time. Malice is the band that sprang to mind most often when the album was on though there's a fair amount of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest in Blazing Rust's take on traditional Heavy Metal. Armed to Exist doesn't break new ground but it is definitely a fun listen.
