You really like Korrozia Metalla? I remember they got even stories in german Metal Hammer Mag back in the day (mostly for their NS background) but when I got my first KM LP I thought huh that's quite punky. Also can't understand the hype around that Oblachnuy Kraj LP (or Varvar - sure it's hyper rare). The others on the pic are obviuously great.
Of course I like Korrozia Metalla. "Orden Satani" and "Russian Vodka" are absolutely classic demonic speed/thrash albums. Might have a small percentage of punk in them but so did Venom and Celtic Frost.
Oblachnyj Kraj might be an acquired taste but I think it's genius and it's wonderful to hear a truly original band that also sounds unmistakably Russian. Another album in the photo that might be an acquired taste is Valkyria, surely not everybody likes that.
As for Varvar though I can't understand how anybody can not love such pounding classic metal with so much power, passion and charizma. It's understandable if you don't like the vocals... but that also makes you less of a man.
