War metal from Vietnam? Yes, it's a thing, even if by "war metal" here I mean bands that sound more like Sabaton rather than Blasphemy. Anyway, Vietman is definitely not a metal country, and most Vietnamese metal projects I've heard so far were playing quite generic lo-fi black metal (not to mention most of them actually were started by Vietnamese immigrants inother countries). This album is quite poorly produced too (which is understandable, though), but features a completely different kind of music - heavy metal with folk and alternative rock elements. Definitely an interesting release, despite all the production flaws.
