Ahrue Ilustre (born September 17, 1968), commonly known as Ahrue Luster, is an American heavy metal guitarist. He is a current guitarist of American heavy metal band Lions at the Gate, and was the lead guitarist for the heavy metal band Ill Niño.[1] He is also a former guitarist for Machine Head,[2][3] as well as Manmade God and a Bay Area thrash metal act called The Horde of Torment who were originally called "Pestilence" but had to change their name because another Pestilence had signed to Roadrunner Records.[citation needed]

In 2015, Luster joined the horror metal band Terror Universal founded by Ill Niño drummer Dave Chavarri.[4] He produced Motograter's second studio album, which has been released on August 11, 2017.

In September 2019, Nonpoint announced Luster will be their touring lead guitarist for their upcoming tour.
