Vere Kutse Kohustab

Estonian pagan-black, released by Lithuanian label Ledo Takas. Please don´t think that Loits play Slavonic pagan-black which is popular these days. No, it´s rather the other way around.

The press-release attached to my promo copy had an explanation of the band´s ideology written from a historical perspective. Something quite interesting for our listener to listen to. Unlike many of their colleagues, Loits do not look back to the ancient times. It´s enough for the Estonian lads to look only half-century back, to the times of Estonia´s occupation by Soviet troops. The essence of the band´s concept lies in glorifying their own soldiers, who were serving in German army during WW II.

But let´s come back to the music. It is presented strictly within the limits of genre. Pagan-metal which i would compare with, for example, Temnozor´. Probably only the quality of this Loits release is better. The band also tries to diversify its sound with accordion, but this happens quite rarely, so it´s hard to blame Estonians´ music for being too varied. Naturally, all the lyrics are written in Estonian, but the label promises that the booklet will contain them translated into English, the mother tongue of all metalheads. The album ends with a song performed on same accordion, which strongly reminds of our warsongs, but probably that war indeed evoked similar feelings in common soldiers fighting for both sides.

Quote: "If anything it reminds me of Edith Piaf and sums up images of gnarly old villagers stubbornly playing draughts and drinking wine on the streets as bombs explode all around them."

I never actually liked the "hidden" song "Metsavendade laul" particularly, but this visual image brought it much closer to my heart. I'm not kidding when I say I had shivers down my spine after reading this passage. Thanks, Pete!
