The project «ORGIA PRAVEDNIKOV» («Orgy of The Righteous») was formed in 1999 by uniting the creative potentials of art-rock band "ARTEL" and rock-bard Sergey Kalugin. The peculiar sound of the band arises from the original combination of acoustic (flute and acoustic guitar) and electric (drums, electric guitar and bass guitar) sessions.

From the moment of their origin the band has declared their purpose as forming the new style, in which the most valuable and the most interesting achievements of the native musical tradition would be combined with the tradition of world rock music. This challenge was very difficult, because the heart of Russian musical culture is romance, with its exceedingly free breath. While rock music means first of all exact and thorough rhythm. But combination of incongruous things is the forte of the band, you can see it even in its name. It turned out that the usage of high-speed and

I discovered the Russian band Orgia Pravednikov in 2005 when by accident I've found their first album in a Russian musical website. I was so impressed with that album (Oglashennye Izydite - Оглашeнные Изыдите) that I ended reviewing it to the first version of Progshine website, back in 2006. This review, by some miracle, was found by the vocalist/acoustic guitar player of the band Sergey Kalugin, that impressed with my review and the fact that a faraway person from Russia was able to understand their music, contacted me and sent me all of the band's CDs. Since them I receive all of their albums for review and I can say I'm Sergey's friend. The last studio album by the band (Dlya Teh, Kto Vidit Sny Vol.1 - Для тех, кто видит сны. Vol.1) was a bit of a different step from their previous three albums and the EP Шитрок (Shitrock) was just but a taste. The fact is, the live album I review now shows exactly this change of sound.

Вперед и вверх ? Vpered I Vverkh (2014) ? meaning Onward And Upward ? was recorded in 2010 in the release concert of Dlya Teh, Kto Vidit Sny Vol.1 (2010) and it comes in a beautiful (as every of their albums) cardboard/papersleeve box with 2 CDs and a DVD, the art emulates the artwork of that studio album too.

To say that Orgia Pravednikov is an extremely competent band is being redundant. The professional side of things, like the execution of the songs, are just perfect and even the overall feeling of the concert can be felt through the audio of the CDs and later on confirmed on the DVD. The band in this concert, as it could not be different, plays Dlya Teh, Kto Vidit Sny Vol.1 (2010) in its entirety in the CD 1 of this live release. Just the order of the songs are a bit different here (to be honest didn't understand why). My favorite tracks on this first disc are 'The Catcher In The Rye', 'По тонкому льду' (Po Tonkomu l'du), 'Дорога ворона' (Doroga Vorona) and especially the fantastic 'Гимн' (Gimn). Another track from the CD 1 that is a surprise is 'Скименъ' (Skimen) because of its aggressive feeling but at the same time full of flutes, also the closing track on the CD 1 'Школа Мудрости' (Shkola Mudrosti) is a great track, upbeat and a perfect ending!

In the CD 2 we have the classic tracks of the other Orgia Pravednikov albums, we have 'Офис' (Ofis), 'Das Boot' and 'Армагеддон FM' (Armageddon FM) from the album Уходящее солнце - Ukhodyashcheye Solntse (2007) and 'Туркестанский экспресс' (Turkestanskiy Ekspress) from the debut album Оглашенные изыдите - Oglashennyye Izydite (2001). We also have a track that would be recorded only 2 years later on the EP Шитрок ? Shitrock (2012). Oddly we don't have any songs from their second studio album, the experimental Двери! Двери! ? Dveri! Dveri! (2005).

In the DVD we can see very clearly what a concert of the band is all about, not to mention that the video/audio are from excellent quality, redeeming the band from the medium quality of their previous DVD Солнцестояние ? Solntsestoyaniye (2008).

Вперед и вверх ? Vpered I Vverkh (2014) for sure closes a cycle for Orgia Pravednikov and we can see that they're pointing to new directions with their music and, to be honest, I hardly can wait for their next studio album!

Вперед и вверх ? Vpered I Vverkh (2014) is simply essential for the fans of the band and it's a perfect introduction to the new ones. If you like music that don't see any problem in not being labeled and if you like to know new quality music I can highly recommend this album for you!

Orgia Pravednikov is one of my favorite bands since I've discovered them in 2005/2006 with their debut album Оглашенные, изыдите (Oglashennye Izydite) from 2001. Для тех, кто видит сны. Vol.1 (For Those Who Sees Dreams Vol.1) (2010) is their latest studio album so far and thought you can see their changing their style to a more heavy oriented kinda of rock you still have all the elements that made this Russian a great band.

Sergey Kalugin is like a bard singing in a band Metal and his acoustic guitar (even if not that present in this album) makes a big difference in their sound. Their weird combination of Metal, Folk and whatever else comes to their mind will be always great to my ears. On this album they even use wind instruments (on 'The Catcher In The Rye').

You can notice that the band was looking for a new sound with this album. Their original sound continues here but now added with new elements. This is for sure their less Prog Rock album, but still great. Not to mention the great artwork on the package, outstanding!

I’m a ОRGIA 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 (2010) 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 (2012) (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.
