In the first East of Eden album, Mercator Projected, there is an anecdote told in a Slavic language. In their second album, SNAFU, there are two songs (more precisely, parts of songs) sung also in a Slavic language, probably the same.
 
I know what language this is not: it's surely not one of the Eastern Slavic languages (not Russian, not Ukrainian, not Byelorussian); almost surely not one of the Western Slavic languages (not Polish, not Czech, consequently, not Slovakian; the Upper and the Lower Sorbian have too little native speakers to have a chance).
 
Hence, it must be one of Southern Slavic languages: Slovenian, Serbo-Croatian, Bulgarian. Which one? Does anybody know?
 
Also, who of the three (Nicholson, Caines, Arbus) knew the Slavic language?

Haven't listened to the music of EAST OF EDEN for donkey's years. As the track Communion is based on a Bartók theme I wonder if it's Hungarian.

It's definitely Slavic. I am a native speaker of one of the Slavic languages. If it was Hungarian I wouldn't understand a single word, but here I do understand some, and, moreover, I realise the Slavic nature of the speaking (I mean the linguistic nature).
 
I know there are some Slavic speakers in the forum. I hope someone would know the answer.
