Equations describing eigenmodes with the frequencies of the order of the geodesic acoustic frequency and the electron/ion diamagnetic frequency in toroidal plasmas are derived and analyzed, a code solving them is developed. It is shown that there exist drift-sound eigenmodes and a new kind of drift-Alfvén eigenmodes. This is done by means of an analytical consideration and numerical modelling of particular discharges in the stellarator Wendelstein 7-AS.
