10 Oct 2013 Dear friends, here it is the new Rustfield’s logo! Since the moment we chose the band’s name, back in 2008, we had the idea to create a logo intertwined with barbed wire but in that period, for technical reasons, we opted to use a font that we liked, the one that you all know, allowing ourselves to change it in future. That day has come! Directly from Andrea’s pencil, with the technical support of Simone Ronfetto, Rustfield’s new logo is finally shown and is now part of the cover artwork of the debut album "Kingdom of rust", out on December 6th 2013 by Massacre Records!
