MATERIA PRIMA was founded in 2002 by three big heavy metal followers Sergey Orlov, Oleg Urosov and Alexander Shamraev. Since in the beginning the band didn’t have a permanent vocalist, they rehearsed with the famous LEGION frontman Alexey Bulgakov, and also with some musicians from other experienced and well-known Russian bands like ARIA, KIPELOV, TRIZNA, FACTOR STRAHA who helped them to rehearse and to compose new material. Finally the vocalist was found in the person of Nadir Kulov. Interestingly enough, in the past he studied with the same vocal teacher as Russian metal legend Valery Kipelov.
One day a big friend of the musicians, the legendary ARIA’s bassist Vitaly Dubinin came up with the idea to begin the real work at the debut album recording. Thus, in the summer of 2007 MATERIA PRIMA entered ARIA Records studio. The mixing and mastering were done by the famous Tommy Hansen in Jailhouse Studios. No wonder that the album was warmly welcomed by both the metalheads and the critics.
