About this album

Volk is a concept album by Slovenian industrial/pop group Laibach. The album is a collection of thirteen songs inspired by national or pan-national anthems, plus the anthem of the NSK State, a virtual state to which Laibach belong. The album is a collaboration with another Slovenian band Silence.

The album’s liner notes credit Wikipedia as their source for information on the national anthems featured.

The anthem of the NSK is essentially the same arrangement as “The Great Seal”, a song on their 1987 album Opus Dei. Like “The Great Seal”, the words are based on Winston Churchill’s famous “We shall fight on the beaches” speech.

    Naneykins is right. What about the references to the merciless conquistadors and their ties to catholicism in Espana? Or the lyrics about collectivism(complete with insects buzzing in the background)in Zhonghua? Not only the UK and USA get criticized here.

    "Poland can't into folk" "Why Polonia non included" ...because there's nothing to criticize about Polandia ;)

    2Indestructibale их нигде не запрещали - только в коммунистической Югославии и никаких славян они не воспевают - у них различная тематика песен касающаяся как различных этносов - так и не имеющая к ним отношения

    germania is my favourite, but every song is special in it´s own way. I approve of this

    I'm pretty sure all the countries are criticized in a bad way, NSK (The Great Seal) was a nice rehash of the NSK state national anthem lol

    For me some of the vocals (the wobbly, breathy operatic stuff) effectively ruined this album. Not to mention, I expected more of Laibach lyrically. I think every country got a romantic, uplifting song, except for the countries that everyone loves to hate (US, UK) which got very critical ones. That was a bit unoriginal. Don't they have anything new to say? But not every song is terrible and there are two gems on the album - Francia and Türkiye. Türkiye might be my favourite Laibach track of all time.

    По непроверенным данным, у этой команды было всего два выступления. Их запретили практически во всех странах! Они - националисты и воспевают славян.
