2014 reissue. Aria's Noch Koroche Dnya (Night Is Shorter Than Day (MIR 100606LP, 1995) set new standards for the band in terms of composition, performance, and production, and established Aria's relevance to a new generation of fans. In 1998, however, they managed to outdo that success with Generator Zla (Generator of Evil). This album marked the band's evolution on all levels. The heavy, laconic '90s guitar sound of Vladimir Holstinin and Sergei Terentiev captured the style of the moment, and Aria fully regained all of its mid '80s popularity, even before the triumph of Russian rock radio station Nashe Radio. Such hits as "Gryaz' (The Dirt)," "Otshelnik (The Hermit)," and "Begi za Solntsem (Run for the Sun)" were huge on the airwaves of the day. This double LP reissue is the first vinyl edition of Generator Zla and includes two bonus tracks from the 2003 live album V Poiskah Novoy Zhertvy (In a Search for a New Victim). Also includes a huge poster, which, along with Yuri Koltygin's cover art, was restored from a recently discovered slide of the original CD cover art. Fully remastered for vinyl under supervision of the band. Includes printed inner sleeves.
Each record is protected within its record sleeve by a white vellum anti-dust sleeve.
