Latest reviews

From behind the Iron Curtain has risen a band that plays heavy metal like Iron Maiden once did, called Aria (Ария). The result is amazing, you feel strongly reminded of that certain sound of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal...   Review by Pierre Tombale ››
Many Westerners refer to Aria as "the Russian Iron Maiden" - either in honor of their patriarchal relationship to the Russian metal scene, or as a derisive commentary on their stylistic similarities. While the Maiden influence cannot be discounted, this latter usage unfairly marginalizes one of the brightest stars in the entire Eastern European metal scene. Aria have demonstrated countless times their songwriting prowess and accomplished musicianship, but perhaps no album better represents this pillar of Iron Curtain metal than 1987's Герой Асфальта.   Review by ScreamingSteelUS ››
The second album of the russian metallers Aria is called Whom Are You With? This time the sound is much more consolidated and driving to the 80's metal and hard rock that the decade is known for.

The cd opens with a considerable hard rock track...   Review by Pierre Tombale ››
