GAiN is a Russian heavy metal band featuring ex-Kruiz guitarist Val Gaina and ex-Hard Day singer Vladimir Bazhin. GAiN's one and only self-titled album was recorded in November-December 1990 at Sixteenth Avenue Sound Studios (Nashville, TN, USA) by Preston Sullivan who's known by work with artists such as Steve Winwood, Bon Jovi, Stevie Wonder, Mark Knopfler, Dolly Parton, George Strait, Alan Jackson, John Denver, Mariah Carey... The album was to be released in 1991 via Warner Bros. Records, but musical trends changed a lot after Nirvana came onto the scene with their hit album Nevermind - most hard rock and heavy metal bands disappeared from major labels. However, 5 years later this album was released through PolyGram Records. Nowadays it is out of print and very hard to find. 21 years after the recordings, in December 2011, Metalism Records re-released this piece of Soviet metal with new artwork, as well as the brand new Val Gaina solo album titled Fingertips.
