Heavy Metal

RUSSIAN ROULETTE is the seventh studio album by German heavy metal band Accept, released in 1986. It was again recorded at Dierks-Studios, but the band chose to self-produce rather than bring back Dieter Dierks as producer. It would be the last Accept album to feature Udo Dirkschneider as lead vocalist until the 1993 reunion album Objection Overruled. The album returns Accept to the darker, heavier sound of releases prior to the more commercial-sounding predecessor Metal Heart.
Cincinnati Pops Orchestra / Erich Kunzel - Russian Nights (2007, Telarc # CD 80657) [RE-UP]

Label/Cat#: Telarc CD 80657 | Country/Year: Europe 2007
Genre: Classical | Hoster: Filepost/Filefactory

…Kunzel's Ruslan and Ludmilla overture is suitably festive, even if it doesn't quite achieve the breathless intensity exhibited by Bernstein or Pletnev. But then, being "definitive" isn't the point of this album–enjoyable music-making is, and in that respect it's a triumph. Especially so as the Cincinnati Pops plays masterfully and with great enthusiasm throughout the program. (Listen to the bold trombones in Mussorgsky's Polonaise or to the singing strings in Spartacus.) Telarc captures it all in its signature vivid, high-impact sound. Yes, I know you already have a couple of Russian favorites discs in your collection, but this new Telarc release is special enough that you'll want to make room for it.

'Guidance features a more bad-ass Russian Circles, a group that seems less elegiac, and more ready to plant their feet solidly on the ground, fighting back bloodied and bruised against each body blow.' Pitchfork / "…the album the group's sixth is moody, dense and dynamic, the gripping soundtrack to an un-filmed drama." Rolling Stone / With their sixth album Guidance, Russian Circles carry on in their quest to conjure multi-dimensional dramatic instrumental narratives and to scout out new textures from their respective instruments.
Russian PO, Dmitry Yablonsky - Dmitry Shostakovich: Hamlet - Music for the 1964 Film, Op. 116 (2004)

Dmitry Shostakovich - Hamlet, Op. 116:
First Complete Recording of the Published 1964 Film Score (2004)
Russian Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Dmitry Yablonsky

EAC | FLAC | Tracks (Cue&Log) ~ 280 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 191 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Classical, Score | Label: Naxos | # 8.557446 | Time: 01:02:26

This disc is the first ever to offer the complete Shostakovich score to the 1964 Grigori Kozintsev film Hamlet. Actually, it contains a bit more: track 6 for example, "The Ball," presents music not heard in the film, music the composer wrote apparently because he wanted to reach a logical ending, even if in the film the music just fades away. There are 23 numbers in all, with a total timing of over 62 minutes. Stylistically, the music is related to the Eleventh (1957) and Thirteenth (1962) symphonies, but is of course less developmental and more programmatic, coming across as a sort of tone poem made up of many short movements. While there is a fair amount of bright, even happy music in the score, the mood is generally dark and intense, appropriately so considering the subject matter: Shakespeare's Hamlet is, after all, hardly a comedy. The music doesn't skim surfaces, either – it haunts, it sasses, it laughs, and it plumbs the depths.

CHINA BEACH recorded a new demo, entitled 'Six Bullet Russian Roulette', which scored favourable Japanese response from radio and record companies. The band even became embroiled in a bidding war between eight different record companies, but finally signed to Teichiku. The sound is heavy and melodic. The singer, Danny Fox, shows he can convey great emotion and give an amazing performance. A true rock band & a great first…and only album!

Chandos’s previous Prokofiev series, recorded in the 80s with Neëme Järvi and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, is still probably the most recommendable complete cycle available. Chandos now seem to feel the need to start again, the reason possibly being that they are now using ‘authentically’ all-Russian forces. Whatever the company’s motivation (or if indeed it is to be a complete cycle), the results are impressively powerful, and the coupling stimulating and generous.
