    I usually listen to rap, like Влади, Каста, Баста, Гуф.

    And some rock/pop stuff, like ДДТ, Наутилус помпилиуc and Агата Кристи.

      Thanks a lot! I only know the band Russkaja (Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6AYJdCGJHk) who partially sing in Russian (Actually most of the band members come from Austria).

      They describe themselves as "Russian Turbo Polka Metal". I would say they are more of a Ska/Folk band. But it might nevertheless be interesting for metal lovers. :-)

      Yes, it is one of the most famous ones. But personally I don't like it very much (except few songs like this one: Этот поезд в огне)

      "Машина времени" is also famous aтd I like it more: Синяя птица

      Thanks, I don't actually like rock myself. That was just a name I remembered seeing a lot.

      A Trip into Elysium is actually one of my favourites :). But it does not have any Russian.

        For those who like black metal, definitely listen to Old Wainds, they have great all-Russian lyrics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YTyPhVEdLs

        Pseudogod are also very good but I don't believe they incorporate their native Russian in their songs at all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Su0buCsrE9A

        Go with Сварга, even the growled parts are rather easy to understand in my opinion.
