Trailer For Debut LP "Energia!" Posted By Russkaja

Vienna based act Russkaja, dubbed "Russian Turbo Polka Metal," is set to unleash its unique blend of polka, jazz, thrash and rock on a unsuspecting world on April 7, 2013 via Napalm Records. The band has posted the first teaser trailer for the new release "Energia!" (shown below).

Russkaja are very Russian, but always with a wink. That's what happens when a group of Russians, Ukrainians and Austrians decide to start a band in the world capital of classicism, Vienna. Made up of skilled and charismatic musicians with varied cultural backgrounds, Russkaja spread their postmodern version of Russian folklore -- a version that screams into your ear: "dance, dance, dance!"

Band founder Georgij A. Makazaria was born and raised in MoscowGeorgij's voice, mixed with a rock band setup, plus a violinist and an incredible brass section including an instrument called "Potete" (a unique hybrid of trumpet and trombone) already suggests the lunatic nature of Russkaja's sound. The Sojusrocket is launching! With Russkaja, Kasatchok dancing becomes a brawl: the brass section is a Kalashnikov and the stage outfits a mixture of Genghis Khan and the Red Army.....with compliments of the Tzar, of course. With two successful albums, 300 concerts on both sides of the Iron Curtain, the band has more than deserved the title of "Working Class Hero" including a golden badge of honour. The first five-year-plan has finally been fulfilled, some comrades would be proud indeed! The next one starts with "Energia!"!
