I got some of these for the distro. The Contr Act CD is better of the two. The shitty recording quality adds to the charm of these bands. Too bad they didn't upload the opening tracks from both bands because they're better than the ones they uploaded.

CONTR ACT "Warriors of Rock" CD (1989 / 2011)CONTR ACT was Russian Heavy Metal band from Ulan-Ude. The band was based on traditions of classic Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. This is brilliant and underrated album of the USSR' times, when the Metal music was unique and original. 9 melodic and atmospheric songs with high vocals and solos. Lyrics have deal with themes about eternal fight of Good vs. Evil, God, Religion, Death etc. The raw sound of the records sends us back into the atmosphere of 80-th years, when the Metal was magical and the prohibited. 100-percent Russian Heavy Metal classics. 4 pages black and white booklet.

KONSUL "Night Riders" CD (1987, 1989 / 2011)

One of the underrated Russian heavy metal bands of the early 80's. For the first time on CD the classic fighters of his undying energy. 9 tracks of 100 percent Heavy Metal classics from the '80s. 8-page color booklet.

Great stuff... Every time you think you have some knowledge about the USSR bands, some obscure bands pop up from the mid 80ies.

I would guess these were all tape albums, anything released back then on vinyl would have been on Melodiya and had relatively large quantities pressed.

Will be getting both of these.

Also got the ANTI CD from the same label but it's not as good. It's more like Chaos AD era Sepultura.

Actually not 100% sure how much banned it was, it was depending on bands. Some was some wasnt. But to play gigs back than band must be approved by officials, as well as to record officially

not doubting, i guess such mythology can be good selling point for foreigners.. though in case of particular band(s) can be true. tricky question...

but for example even Korrozia Metalla wasnt banned, but according to rumors them had to change some lyrics like song called AIDS(Spid) was originally called "God"

That's the Konsul who did the Proklyatiy Mir demo, right? Great stuff...

Was there any compilation of Legion demo recordings? I'd really like the Apocalipsis demo 1986 on CD or even LP.

just got both, killer old metal here. Best $10 I've spent in awhile. Would buy on vinyl if some smart label released them.
