ABRYCT Otvetniy Udar LP (1988)
4.Tochka Otscheta (instrumental)
5.Doroga V Nikuda
7.Rock N Roll
8.Tsvetnoy Son (instrumental)
Again, this one is for the metallers that read this blog. If your a punk, I can almost guarantee this ones is not for you. Sorry.
The band was from Russia, and the name translates into "August". August formed in 1982, and were always dealing with problems with the USSR government. The Soviet government scrutinized and kept music within certain boundaries of content and artistic creativity.
The music on This LP is a killer attempt at early power metal, that has gone on to influence the likes of Rhapsody, Blind Guardian, Nitro, etc. This stuff is over the top with melodic, fast, operatic, classical influenced riffs. If you hate key boards, you'll hate this. Like I said this stuffs not for everyone, and has had people in the metal scene scoffing at them for years. I love it, its over the top and obscure as hell. If you see this bands stuff grab it up, its rare as hell, and barely made it into the States at all.
