Zhraja - "Forgotten Songs of Dead Nation" [2002]

Artist: Zhraja
Title: Forgotten Songs of Dead Nation
Genre: Experimental Industrial/Folk Metal
Country: Belarus
Year: 2002

Track List:

  1. Vain
  2. Oriental Setting
  3. Over Him

  6. Years of Soft Living
  7. Discretion
  8. State - Hysterics

A very obscure and strange release that defies a simple genre classification and can be best described as electronic metal with black metal-style vocals and folk elements. There's not much information about the band, except it's a duo from Minsk led by a member of a late 90s black metal band called Bachus. I found out about Zhraja many years ago when I was only starting getting into underground metal (interestingly, the site where I've found some of their tracks back then is still alive and well).
