Origins

In 2002, dissension in the heavy metal band Aria led to Aria members Valerie Kipelov (vocals), Sergey Terent'ev (guitar) and Aleksandr Manyakin (drums) leaving that band and joining with former Aria member Sergey Mavrin and bassist Aleksey Kharkov of Maverick to form Kipelov. The band was named to make use of the fame of the best-known member, singer Kipelov. Since Kipelov was, essentially, just a revision of Aria, they were able to begin performing immediately. Aria (Russian: Ария) is a popular Russian heavy metal band that formed in 1985. ...

In May of 2003, after a brief hiatus from touring, the group performed a concert in the open-air Voel Amphitheatre in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Valerie Kipelov described this concert as the most memorable event of his creative life: "It was very important for us, since only a few had believed that, after the breakup of Aria, we would again become big stars."

Sergey Terent'ev left the band shortly after this concert, being replaced by former Strayk and Legion guitarist Andrey Golovanov. The new lineup immediately resumed touring.

On March 6, 2004, a concert at DK of Gorvunov showcased the new lineup to Muscovites.

This video achieved a high ranking on the MTV Russia charts, and the band received the "Most Promising Band of 2004" award at MTV Russia's Russian Music Awards.


In October 2004 Kipelov began another tour of Belarus, the Ukraine, and Russia, after which Sergey Mavrin left the group to pursue a solo career. He was replaced by Victor Smol'skiy from the German group Rage, and the band began work on a new studio album, River Of Time. Rage is a heavy metal band from Germany, currently consisting of Peter Peavy Wagner (Bass, Vocals), Victor Smolski (Guitar), and Mike Terrana (Drums). ...


The band worked on River of Time through the late winter, spring, and early summer of 2005, after which the album was mastered at Gernhart Studios in Germany. With the album mostly completed, Kipelov toured Belarus and Russia showcasing the new material, tour highlights including an appearances at LDS in Saint Petersburg and at DS of Luzhniki in Moscow, each concert attracting over 11,000 fans.[citation needed]
