VOLNAYA STAYA the only Russian totally female heavy metal act inspired by Doro Pesch music and appearance. They are five beautiful and very talented young girls, not only good looking but also very experienced and skilful. The idea to organize such band belongs to one of the main guitar heroes on Russian metal scene – Alexey STRIKE (ex-MASTER). This guitar virtuoso is famous not only as an incredible musician but also as a great composer, songwriter and producer. STRIKE created all the material for the debut album of VOLNAYA STAYA and together with the talent and the beauty of the band members, it made this incredible mix of melodic and lyrical heavy metal with “female face”.
Soon after the release of the debut album VOLNAYA STAYA signed the deal with international management/booking agency HARD ROCKER MANAGEMENT (ex-DRAGONIGHT AGENCY). The band gave interviews for European mass media and started to work at the English version of their songs. Despite the young age of the band, it accepted the tons of proposals for tour activities, including those from abroad. In 2008 VOLNAYA STAYA participated in the compilation "Tribute To Steel: A Tribute To Warlock" released by Pure Steel Records (Germany) with the legendary hit “I rule the ruins”. It was the first official WARLOCK / Doro Pesch tribute album and it featured many new and old heavy metal names including the members of WARLOCK themselves.
