A violent clash between Armenia and Azerbaijan’s military forces has been unfurling in the Middle East, with over 100 military deaths being recorded so far. In a bizarre piece of what could be called propaganda, the Azerbaijan military has released a heavy metal song along with a music video filled with missiles and tanks.
The current clash between nations revolves around the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, which is technically part of Azerbaijan. However, Armenia claimed the territory following a military victory in 1994 and the current population of Nagorno-Karabakh is almost entirely comprised of ethnic Armenians. In this conflict, Azerbaijan has support from Turkey, who committed a genocide against the Armenian people from 1915-1917.
