Like the calm after a storm, Slovenia's Laibach returns after three years with their most mature, powerful record to date. Giving their militant industrial boots a rest, the collective takes national anthems from several countries and converts them into sonatas that summon the anxiety and chaos of today's geopolitical climate. In typical Laibach fashion, "America" is an epic call-to-arms for the proletariat. Tracks like ""Germania"" and ""Slovenia"" invoke the subtle electronics of Múm while maintaining Laibach's trademark anthemic, growling vocals. Volk again solidifies these controversial icons' position in the history of revolutionary music.
