Underappreciated Musician of Color #12: WRUST
~Special Edition Post~
Meet WRUST, the Black Metal band - every kind of pun proudly intended - from Gaborone, Botswana in Southern Africa. No...you're not hallucinating. No, rock wasn't originated by white folks so yeah...it's allowed.
Now, I'm not usually a fan of extreme metal because so few bands sound good, but damn...they're one of those bands who actually make that shit listenable (talkin' bout the song "Prophecy of Doom", just FYI).
So...why is this a "special edition post"? If you have to ask, then you must not know me very well.
In the meantime, the members are as follows:
Stux Daemon- (guitars and vox)
D.O. - ( bass)
Dem Lord Master- (drums)
(...and Ben Phaks Mophakedi on rhythm guitars, wherever his pic may be).
There's not much info on these guys, even though their music is awesome and they are pioneers who will must assuredly go do down in history (i.e., woefully underappreciated). So I welcome discussion and contribution on these fine gentlemen. Have you been to a concert? Do you own all their shit? Inquiring pygmies wanna know.
Check 'em out on YouTube!!!! (By the way, is it just me, or does Stux have the whole "totally hot lead singer & guitarist" thing going on? Notice how he keeps in touch with fans, providing lyrics and apologizing for not being able to tour in America due to, you know, lack of a promoter.)
I wanna see 'em in concert!!!! I want an excuse to break out my Goth gear once again, damn it!!!
