History
Moscow’s Kruiz (KPYN3) was first formed in 1978 as a rock band called Young Voices, but apparently was ordered to disband by the Soviet authorities five years later. The band, and in particular guitarist Valeri Gaina, reformed the band as a heavy metal band however. The band was taken over by the new members eventually and despite a European tour disbanded and came back again as a rock band. Kruiz from 1988 and Gain feature English lyrics. The former album was recorded in Russian for the domestic market. The band opened for AC/DC and Metallica in Russia in 1989. Apparently, several members defected to Italy as political refugees and Gaina moved to the USA where he joined Karma. Gain was a 1995 split with Gaina. Gaina reformed the band in 2001 or 2002 as a metal band once again. 25 и 5 was a compilation of re-recorded material from 2006. Live In Omsk 1986 was a video issued in 2008. Alexander Monin died in 2010.

The albums in the latter half of '90s are classified as metal. The band has sold millions of records in its homeland.
