Biography

The Arrow (previously known as Black Arrow) was formed 24th of October, 1994, by Pavel Blischenko in Moscow. The band began to prepare the material for its first concert program. Right during those days was formed the very special sound that later became The Arrow’s trademark: brutal guitar riffs, lyrical and sparkling solos, attacking keyboard passages and, of course, the dynamism that emphasized the band among its likes.

The concert program was finally composed. It was called “Flying High Live” and included songs “Children Of Gods”, “Mystery”, “Saver”, “Jewel Roads” and “Never Return”. The first Black Arrow’s show, that took place in “R-Club” on November the 2nd, 1996, gave the appreciable resonance in press and Fido. The band continued to rehearse.
The culmination of all efforts was the C.D.M. show that gathered over 1500 fans of the band. By that time Black Arrow already had an imposing fan-club. The show was more than a mere success, and it was February the 18th, 1997, that became the countdown point. Having reached the peak of its first luck, Black Arrow was torn apart from the inside by insuperable contradictions that led to total fiasco on Death-Rider-Festival show, and the band split. Lead singer Andrey Khramov and Black Arrow’s leader Pavel Blischenko were the first to leave the band, followed by the drummer Valentin Dobrovolsky. As far as Sergey Knyazev (guitar) and Dmitry Mertzalov (bass) are concerned, they gave up their musical activity a year later.
