I'm from Russia
If you have any questions - I will try for an opportunity to respond
Whta I can say about russian metal scene?
mmmm.... I love melodic hard rock/melodic heavy metal, not thrash/death, therefore I can tell only about bands played in this genres
1. GALAXY (Galaxy Group/Galaktika / Галактика)
- my best band.... sound similar US\European bands late 80's as Dokken but heaviest. The band recorded also some albums\EP before the release of his English-language album in 1990
By the way band recorded second English-language album in 1993, but never released. I have 8 demo-tracks from this and also all official albums. Therefore I can upload songs for you, no problem
