"It pummels their debut with 12 beautifully lined tracks that finally provide us with a personal insight into [SoR's] world."

"...opens slowly and then shifts into overdrive, its synthetic rhythms charging like galloping horses."

Album description:
"Vicious Cycles", Son of Rust's sophomore effort, explores the idea of freedom. Is it surrendering to ones id or baser desires? Is it achievable by sheer will or faith? Can you give yourself to another and find yourself complete? Are you ever truly free if your life is defined by repetition?

"Vicious Cycles" Includes the up-tempo, hard hitting EBM dance floor thumpers "The World You Live In" and "Falling Down", as well as old school synth-pop stylings in "Violator", "Discordia" and "Alien Taste". Rounding out the mix are 80's industrial throw-back "Welcome to Chaos" and modern-era new wave revival "The Highest Cost".

Unlike many modern electronic albums, the 12-track "Vicious Cycles" contains very little filler. Work on this album began shortly after "Six Years" left off, so each track has had a chance to benefit from ample love and meticulous attention to detail. Add to that mastering by one of the industries most well known engineers, Mike Marsh of The Exchange UK (Depeche Mode, Mesh, Pet Shop Boys, etc), and you've got a sonic experience you can really sink your teeth into.

Scream, dance, reminisce and dream along with Son of Rust as we take you on an intimate, expansive and sometimes frightening electronic journey through a multitude of electronic and rock styles.

Six Years has been a work in progress since late 1999, and has been through multiple iterations. The final product is a culmination of that work, as each track has been remastered and re-performed specifically for this release.

Six Years features music, lyrics and vocals by Justin Coope and guitar and backup vocals by Ben Purdy. Additional vocals by Cameron Cartier. Mastered by DRT at www.drtmastering.com. Mixed and performed in 12:01 Studios, Portland OR.
