3 stars Where do people find out about all those Russian prog bands? I'm from Russia and hear about most of them here on PA. Like many modern prog bands, Orgy of the Righteous (as it's translated) is a revivalist band. Reviving in this case the traditions of so-called Russian rock, essentially somber, lyrically pretentious bard rock, best enjoyed in your kitchen after party, but amplified for a small outdoor arena. This album is mostly built around epic folk and hard rock. Like russian rock classics, it is fond of utilizing flutes, violas and such. While being of different Genesis than western prog, it does feature some complex arrangement and non linear structures. This is above average of what passes for russian rock nowadays, to be sure, but sometimes I wonder if it is too cleverly formulated for those wishing to understand the famed mysterious Russian soul.
