: “These two songs” Defend the Land “and” Genocidal Humanoids “both speak of a fierce and fierce war going on in our cultural homelands of Arzac and Armenia.” And, ‘We are proud to share these songs with you and hope you enjoy listening to them.

Most importantly and urgently, we humbly ask you to donate small or large sums to help those who have been badly affected by ever-growing accounts of crimes against humanity. “

Tensions have been high since July as the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan collided for several days.
