You read ruski? Kewl. Is that the book I've heard about which include just about every HM tape album released in the USSR in the 80's?Metalipeiklo wrote:(Loosely) translated by myself from "Russkij Rok - Malaja encyclopedia", Lean-Antao Moscow 2001.
Yea, some! Could very well be the same book, though I've seen other editions of it with different covers. I got mine today and I haven't the slightest idea where to start. So much stuff I've never heard about, and several listed bands haven't even released anything it seems! So, just in case someone needs any info on some hyper-obscure act from Russia (my edition is from 2001), let me know and I'll see if I can provide with any info.DaN wrote:You read ruski? Kewl.

If we are talking about the same "2nd Credo" it is a Latvian, not a Russian "band" (released on Melodija as you said). I've seen it here and there and maybe it is this particular LP you're talking about?DaN wrote: Has anyone else heard about this other Russian CREDO who released an album on Melodia (probably) around '86? I think it's supposed to be symphonic rock and not related to the "real" MAGNIT/CREDO, but I wanna be absolutely 100% sure there's no connection before I write them off my wantlist.
Interesting! Thanks for the insight. However it appears odd to me how people could care more about (the overrated) MASTER and (not so good) BLACK COFFEE instead of good bands such as CREDO. Alright, I can't judge their live performances. And seeing the band pictures of CREDO I guess people were interested in the more image oriented bands, hehe...Boris wrote:Well about these tape albums that were re-released on vinyl, as far as I know they are the same recordings because it was pointless to rerecord them. The tape albums of the late 80's had a good quality and the masters could be used for vinyl.
Regarding Kredo not making it, not reforming or whatever, that's because no one in Russia cared ! They were a mediocre band on the scene, while there were the eternal 4 tytans of Russian metal - Aria, Master, Black Coffee and Black Obelisk, and no one really cared about most other bands. Same with bands like Paranoia and First Aid.
Well we moved to Israel in 1991 so we pretty much missed this period in Russian metal, and anyways I was pretty young back then. A good chance is that my dad saw Magnit play live, and he might know someone from the band. He does know personally the guitarists from Aria and Black Coffee ...Metalipeiklo wrote:By the way, Boris, you mentioned CREDO/MAGNIT making live performances? You've seen them play? Are you maybe in possession of any interesting facts, photos or similar of the band(s) yet unknown to public?
