АРИЯ picture
Ария (Aria), the oldest and most famous russian metal band that plays classical Heavy metal in the vein of NWOBHM, was founded in 1985 in USSR by Vladimir Holstinin (guitar), Alik Granovsky (bass) and Valery Kipelov (vocal). Since 1986 band (produced by Victor Vekshtein) started playing in small clubs and festivals. In 1985 and 1986 they recorded two debute albums "Mania Velichia" (Megalomania) and "S Kem Ty?" (Who Are You With?), released on tape.

In 1987 more than half of members, including Granovsky and Andrey Bolshakov, left Aria and founded Мастер (Master) to play Thrash metal. New Aria, though, became more successful. With Vitaly Dubinin (bass), Sergey Mavrin (guitar) and Maxim Udalov (drums) they recorded their new album "Geroy Asfalta" (Hero of Asphalt), the first one released by state publishing monopoly "Melodia". This album discovered Aria to public and they toured to Germany. In 1989 the band dismissed their manager Victor Vekshtein.

АРИЯ Игра с огнём

Album · 1989 · Heavy Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
siLLy puPPy
There's no denying that Ария (Aria) borrows heavily from Iron Maiden (and Judas Priest to a lesser extent). So much so that you can tell exactly which song they lifted a riff or fill or lead from. I'm normally totally turned off by such blatant plagiarism. However, these guys really nailed it big time. Not only do they sound like an Iron Maiden from a parallel universe, which the Soviet Union kinda was back then, but they add their own ideas to make some really catchy and profound music.

The reason this works so well for me, despite sounding like a clone at times, is the context of time and place the music was created. In the late 80s and early 90s when Ария (Aria) was at their peak, the situation in the Soviet Union was nearing utter collapse. Music, especially heavy music was the anecdote (along with maybe vodka) to help ease the pain of the horrible existence many youth endured. The fact that they could hear of bands like Iron Maiden but would never have the opportunity to see them live or even own their albums unless it be some bad quality bootlegs, meant someone had to fill that slot. Well, Ария (Aria) was there to save the day to give the hungry metalheads what they craved. Not only did they deliver it like pros and in their own language but they equaled the passion, the musicianship and songwriting of their influences.

I find myself listening to this album more than I ever thought I would and will be seeking out others. 4 stars.

Warthur
The Soviet Union was falling apart over the course of 1991, and what better soundtrack for a slide into chaos than Ария? On Кровь За Кровь the gang issue forth a furious Iron Maiden-inspired onslaught given their own unique twist thanks to well-honed compositions and the forceful vocals of Valeriy Kipelov. He might be offering a Russian-language take on Bruce Dickinson, but as far as vocalists taking inspiration from Bruce go he's extremely good at it, and indeed the band seem more than capable at matching their influences at their own game. I might not be able to understand Margarita Pushkina's lyrics, but I can tell when they're delivered passionately, and that's very much the case here.
