The group OPRICH was found in cold autumn 1998 in Rybinsk, Russia. The members of OPRICH came from a hard-core project Kontra. In the beginning it had former name.
Having completed the membership of the group with two vocalists who can also play the flute the group began to realize earlier born ideas under the leadership of Jaromir. Two-part voice of folk melodies and flute’s tune merged in heavy sounding of guitars.
