    Russian band recommendations

    Can anyone please recommend some not-so-mainstream bands from Russia? Preferably bands leaning to 'progressive' metal, or alternative metal.
    Something along the lines of Tool, let's say, or Isis, maybe Deftones etc.
    (Alternative rock bands too )
    I haven't had much luck browsing youtube by now...

    So far, when it comes to Russian music I liked the sound of Theodor bastard, Джан Ку, some stuff from this singer Linda ...and couple more.

    Thanks!

    P.S. Any sound related to those mentioned above would be useful as well.

    P.S. P.S. a piece of my playlist

    Not sure I’m ready to give you specific recommendations but probably you can try out the following set of steps.
    1. Look at the lists of popular Russian bands from the wiki

    Альтернативный метал в России
    Ню метал, ставший невероятно популярным в Европе и США, проник и в Россию. Наиболее известны такие коллективы как Amatory, Психея, 7000$, Tracktor Bowling, Слот, KAIRA, Stigmata, Rashamba и др. Группы Психея, Art Blanche и ##### («5 Diez») также усиленно используют в своих песнях компьютерные эффекты и смешивают метал с музыкой самых разнообразных жанров. Как представители инструментального метала известны такие группы как Silence Kit, Skafandr, Aga_Me, Thousand Scars

    http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Альтернативный_метал

    В России также имеются исполнители прогрессив-метала, например, иркутская группа Extrovert, новосибирская группа Glass Reason, ярославская группа Tumulus (синтез прогрессива с фолком), ярославская группа Neophron (Мелодичный дэт-метал с элементами Progressive Death metal), амурская команда Azazello и приморская группа Gebeth Arts.

    2. Test if you like the sound of the bands on YouTube . Some may be present with one or several compositions.

    3. Go to BitTorrent 鴃繩辮 RuTracker.org (ex torrents.ru) , register there, search for the band you've found appealing, and download respective torrents with full albums . Most of the bands from the wiki lists above are expected to be there.
