MASTER

MASTER are considered the pioneers of Russian heavy thrash metal. Their first albums released in Soviet Union originally on vinyl were sold by millions of copies. Together with other metal monsters KRUIZ and ARIA they established heavy metal scene in USSR and then in Russia. At the same time, MASTER is still very popular nowadays. The band has gone through many line-up, musical style and the whole environment changes, but these musicians are still among the real leaders of Russian rock scene. One of the founders and original members, the permanent bassist of the band Alik Granovski together with the cult sound engineer Andrei Kruster Lebedev guarantee that MASTER is always true to its roots and real metal spirit.

MASTER was founded in 1987 by four original members of ARIA, who decided to play music which would be faster and heavier. And the idea worked. Actually, those musicians: Andrei Bolshakov (guitars), Alik Granovski (bass), Igor Moltchanov (drums) and Kirill Pokrovski (keyboards) presented almost whole instrumentalists part on the original ARIA line-up. Moreover, they were the authors of the big part of the material of the band at that moment. No wonder, that since the first days MASTER reached leading position in Soviet heavy metal. The band sold their first 2 LPs by millions of copies, played many shows including big festivals like the legendary Monsters Of Rock. In the beginning of 90s MASTER worked in Belgium, but as opposed to their colleagues KRUIZ, the band was more demanded in Russia and the years of successful career prove this fact. A few years after, in 1997 MASTER did a big tour in France.

In 1991 Mikhail Serishev who was the current MASTERs vocalist at that moment, played the part of Jesus Christ in Russian version of the world famous rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar.

In the spring of 1992 MASTER supported tour of SEPULTURA around Russia and Baltic States.

Many events like this, many albums recorded, many shows done including the famous 20 years Anniversary Concert in 2007 keep MASTER on the top of Russian hardnheavy scene and make it alive. This legend is still one of the most sold bands in Russia and former Soviet countries as a live metal rock band and as an author of many successful CDs.
