Six Dead Bulgars are one of the most long-running classic industrial/noise projects from Russia, formed in Arkhangelsk during mid-1990s and having released more than a dozen full-length albums since then. Their general style can be compared to Einsturzende Neubauten, but this particular album stands out of their discography because it consists mostly of remixed folk song of the Russian North. The album was recorded in collaboration with the members of Moon Far Away and the folk singer Ekaterina Zorina. The folk music of the Nenets people (which is obviously different from the Russian folk songs) was also used, particularly in the tracks #3 and #7. The electronic part of the music ranges from ambient to IDM and rhythmic noise. Surely, this is a controversial release which may not meet the taste of some fans of "pure" folk music, yet it's quite unique in terms of sound, being one of the most interesting albums in the band's whole discography:
