4 stars I'm a ORGIA PRAVEDNIKOV fan since 2005. I've followed every step since then and I still think they're an awesome band that mix a serie of unique elements and have an even more unique sound.

Their 2010 album Для тех, кто видит сны. Vol.1 (For Those Who Sees Dreams Vol.1) is being terrible bashed here, and I still dont know why. By the way, it's free to download on their official website. In this release they changed a bit of their sound, a bit more heavy I must say, less 'unique sounds' maybe. But still one of their finest. Maybe because the band now is able now to work on their own studio things can be more like they really want.

This EP Шитрок (in english Shitrock, a word that acording Sergey Kalugin Russians use to call their own Rock Music) is a re-recording EP. I must say that a first glance, the overall sound dont appeal to me as it used to. It's too heavy, probably that's why they re-recorded the songs. To me the only great track is the final one, 'Королевская свадьба', and that alone gave thos EP a 4 stars to me.

One this that must be pointed out is about their artwork. I own all of their CDs and they work hard to present a high quality art in every album. Not different on this one as well. Amazing artwork.

The EP can be streamed at their website and even free downloaded as well. Worth a listen, for sure.

4 stars 2012 saw the release of the four-track EP 'Shitrock', and the led title track provides an excellent example of what is so good about these guys when they get it right. Musically there is plenty of folk metal, along with pronk and prog, and while the guitars crunch and are incredibly heavy there is also room for brass, a balalaika and probably the kitchen song. It flexes, it moves, it twists and moves through myriad styles and fashion, all of which just makes the listener want to turn it up just that little more. The EP is incredibly intense, with a great deal going on, as the music is powered and pushed along.

Three of the songs are less than four minutes in length, while the last is in excess of ten, and it is this that shows just what this band are really capable of. There are times when it feels like modern opera, with over the top baritone male vocals and a female soprano who has been multi-tracked to sound like a choir, all with robust folk metal accompaniment underneath. This feels much like a return to form than their previous album, as there is no longer a sense of parody and instead here is a band determined to carry through their vision.
