Two-part voice of folk melodies and flute’s tune merged in heavy sounding of guitars. The necessity of Russian-speaking name had become obvious, so the name OPRICH appeared. According to The Dal’s dictionary this Old Russian word means “from without”, “vice versa”, “against” - that is negative, opposition and struggle. OPRICH directs the edge of a hard militant spear at Christianity and bourgeois value system which transmute the Slavs into obedient and politcorrect inhabitants who are outsiders on their own land.
The words of OPRICH songs are full of heathen characters in its northern form. This form is the most close by Top Volga population. Peculiarities of local dialect also used in the songs. As a result of searching for brothers-in-arms OPRICH maintains friendly relations with Jaroslavl Slavonic community.
The members of OPRICH appear on stage in national dresses. OPRICH’s concerts are bright act which is full of strength and savage fury. It is worth seeing! Russian patriotic label Stellar Winter records edited mini album OPRICH “Wolfen loyalty” in spring 2005. It was a split with Ukrainian group KRODA.
This release symbolizes community of north and south Slavic branches. At present OPRICH works at full-size album creation. As well as the group records a split-album with Ukrainian group TCHUR. Read more on Last.fm.
