Broadside is Yaroslavl alt core music band

There are lots of gorgeous music bands in Yaroslavl. Today I want to tell you about one of them — it is Broadside. Let's start with their song "Ustala" (in English: Exhausted) from the new album "Inside of Me":

The band was founded in 1997 year, but Broadside's birthday is January, 1998. Three students of Yaroslavl Music Specialized School after L.B. Sobinov have decided to create a music band of an unknown style. The style consisted of elements of funk, punk-rock, hard-rock, jazz, rap core and a form and features of classic music. They defined their style as alternative rock/nu metal. Band's rendering is bright but not aggressive. Music and creative work of the band is for general public: both youth and adults.

The creativity of the band was influenced by a lot of different music: from Grieg, Mozart, Ludwig van Beethoven, George Gershwin, to AC/DC, Deep Purple, Metallica, reen day, Korn, Limp Bizkit, Guano Apes, R.H.C.P., S.O.A.D.

Every year the band takes place on the festival Equilibrium in Yaroslavl. Also in 2007 year Broadside won in rock-festival in Kovrov in nomination "The best alternative music band".

Broadside remains untouched for all time. There are only three musicians in the band:

  • Andrey Kharchev — band's father, vocal, guitar and lyrics
  • Dmitry Shapulin — vocal, bass guitar, lyrics
  • Alexey Prilepsky — drums

The band had performances in many cities: Moscow, Arkhangelsk, St. Petersburg, Vologda, Orenburg, Rossosh, Nyandoma, Tutaev, Ivanovo, Rybinsk and other.

Broadside has recorded four albums:

  • "Spherical" — 2002 year
  • "Bezdna" (in Russian: Бездна, in English: Abyss) — 2003 year
  • "Antarktida" (in Russian: Антарктида, in English: Antarctica) — 2004 year
  • "Pozitiv" (in Russian: Позитив, in English: Positive) — 2006 year

In 2008 year the band decided to add something new. They took on Anastasiya Subbotina (vocal) and started to work on the new program "Inside Of Me".
