    Who in this Maiden BB is familiar with this band? These guys from Russia are so far the best Maiden clone(except for the singing) that I've ever heard. They have been around since the mid-80s and are still pretty active and one of Russia's most popular metal bands. The most notable difference between Aria and Maiden is Aria's singer, who sounds more somewhat like a cross between Rob Halford and Hansi Kursch(Blind Guardian's singer) than like Bruce Dickinson.

    I have all of Aria's albums and last year they released their latest album "Christening by Fire" which I also have. If you disliked the British Dance of Death, then you'd probably like the Russian one(though the Russian one sounds pretty distinct from the British one). ;)

    BTW, you don't have to mind the fact that this band also sings completely in Russian.

    I agree, this band should be taken seriously as they deserve it.

    Oh come on you two this band DOES exist. Go search the UM Hub as there are a few people there who have their albums(like I do.)

    Also, do a search for Aria on http://www.metal-archives.com/ and you'll know that it exists.

It's pretty crazy ive seen video's of Aria and songs tons of stuff he has it all there not really a clone just pretty similar ...
