The world's top Russian Turbo Polka Metal band, Russkaja, released their fifth album, 'Kosmopoliturbo', through Napalm Records last week and now the second track from the album is unleashed today.

The Austrian crossover sensations are in the midst of their heaviest touring schedule to date and we are delighted to bring you 'Alive', which is a great representation of a great album.

Russkaja have previously released 'Hey Road' from 'Kosmopoliturbo' and in case you missed it the first time around, here it is again.

Wacken resounded to the sound of the Austrian crossover sensations on Saturday as Metal's biggest festival was treated by a band who are most definitely not typical of the genre. You can relive the whole performance right here:

Just after the band's triumphant main stage performance, Russkaja lighting technology maestro Mimo got himself a permanent souvenir from Saskia of Santa Sagre Tattooing of Cologne in the backstage tattoo parlour.

After management and behind-the-scenes changes, Russkaja are currently riding the crest of a wave and ready to conquer with their best album to date already making an impact.
