Para fãs de rock'n'roll cru e pesado, vale a audição.
Obscure gem from Leningrad, in the former Soviet Union and now St. Petersburg. The group
Bol'shoy Zheleznyy Kolokol (Большой железный колокол) was formed in 1973 by former members of Sankt Peterburg and was another band to play in illegality by government restrictions. They didn't release anything in the few years of activity, just old live recordings circulates on the internet, keeping alive the memory of the Soviet rock.
Post here the bootleg Концерт в ДК им. С. Орджоникидзе (which would be a live in Leningrad in 1974). Divided into 7 short tracks, unfortunately marked by a poor quality recording, but we can still hear a sound with a strong influence of hard and garage rock, guitar and organ solos taking turns in the instrumental and very discreet violin. The lyrics are all in Russian. For fans of raw and heavy rock'n'roll, it's recommended.
