BioAS THE WORLD BURNS (formerly RUST) is a Norfolk, VA. based hard rock/metal band, and consists of five guys, longtime friends, John Ferreira – Lead Vocals, Rich Clark – Lead Guitars, Evan Swenson – Guitar, Jim Vandale - Drums and Barry Couch – Bass Guitar.
A brief bio - AS THE WORLD BURNS was formed in early 2005. We are seasoned musicians. A.T.W.B. has a strong rhythm section and guitar and vocals that rival what is currently being played on the radio.
We sound like Megadeth had a one night stand with Ozzy and were raised by Steve Vai and David Gilmour. Bands we would fit with, style wise, range from rock like Skid Row- Guns and Roses and Motley Crue to Metal such as Avenged Sevenfold, Megadeth ect.
We play regionally. On the east coast mainly. We frequently open for national acts at The NorVa. Other venues worth mention are Jaxx in Springfield, Va- Alley Katz in Richmond- Sonar in Baltimore and Lamoure's in N.Y.C. We have aquired a healthy following over the years.
Some band's we have played with include- George Lynch, Kix, Duff McCaggen's Loaded, White Lion, Devil Driver, Finger 11, Doro Pesch, Airbourne, Doro Pesch, Veil of Maya and a slew of tribute bands.
Late spring ’08 we released a 4 song Demo CD, “Let it Rust”, that was been well received. Our full length debut CD was just released May 12th, 2011. Currently available at all digital retail outlets. Including itunes and Amazon.
