OPRICH are delving into the viking theme retaining the original sounds and exuding a rare flair while keeping it heavy. Their new album titled ‘Poveter’ which translates to ‘All Sails to the Wind’ glorifies the heritage of the ancient Russian viking parallels – the Ushkuiniks of Novgorod. This album comes in a fantastic 4-panel digipak with a 20-page booklet highlighting the ancient, overlooked history of the ‘Russian vikings’.
