RATFARM is a hard hitting heavy metal band based out of Pitman, NJ featuring Greg Rubin and Rick Mitchell (formerly from the band No Warning Shots) and Scott “Stanley” Pustilnick (formerly of MCA recording artist Familiar 48 a/k/a Bonehead whose major label album “Wonderful Nothing”, with the hit single “The Question”, charted on both the Billboard Rock and Hot AC charts).

The group met while recording at Audio Alley in Pitman, N.J., where Scott introduced his experience recording with Grammy-nominated producer Don Gehman (John Mellencamp, REM, Blues Traveler) and Mark Dearnley (AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne) and touring with such artists as Creed, Nickleback and Rob Zombie.

RATFARM takes the aggressive lyrics of “New” Metal and combines that with the addictive guitar and bass from such greats as Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden to produce what it calls “Smart” Metal. RATFARM does not scream to confuse the audience rather, RATFARM screams to be understood. Gone are the 10 minute endless confusing jams that no one can comprehend. Gone are the dog barking lyrics that no one can understand. RATFARM defines Metal in 2015 bringing back the addictive guitars and adept song writing that is lacking today.
