Vere Kutse Kohustab

'Vere Kutse Kohustab' is the title of the second album of this Estonian horde. The title means something like 'Obliged by the call of blood' and the album contains twelve pieces of Heathen Black Metal. Actually, I’m depriving the band by labeling it with this term; what we hear on this album is a lot more than heathen black metal. Loits lacks the sincere mentality of thousands of bands who are playing their music exclusively within the visual borders of their genre. Loits exceeds these borders. So you can hear a fresh sound/style thanks to the typical rock 'n roll-groove and some punk-alike guitar riffs on the album.
People who are already familiar with the previous album and the 7" EP's that Loits has released in the past know what to expect from these men and woman on "Vere Kutse Kohustab". Their style hasn't changed a lot actually and during the 55 minutes playing time you won't get surprised by the songs. Nevertheless, all tracks are of a very high level so it will absolutely not disappoint you in any way.
Trademarks of Loits are the very catchy melodies mixed with a dirty/raw style of instrument-torturing, so the real underground feeling stays alive. While listening to the album, the love of the band members for their country becomes very clear thanks to the use of melodies and inspiration from old traditional songs used in the Loits tracks. Also the lyrics are sung in the Estonian language and are dealing with historical subjects; honouring their forefathers. Lembetu the vocalist of the band is the main pacesetter of the band. Both, his screams and his clean vocals perfectly fit in the music; his screams are even one of the greatest I've heard in a long time; they're raw and dirty yet still quite clear, see it as a mixture of the screams from Immortal's Abbath and Satyricon's Satyr.
Not all tracks on the album are totally unknown to fans of the band. 'Vanade Leegionäride Laul' and 'Furor Aesticus' have already been released on the 'Legion Estland' 7" EP, and the songs 'Raiugem Ruunideks' and 'Tuleristsed' can be found on the other 7", namely 'Raiugem Ruunideks'. With 'Vere Kutse Kohustab' Loits released an above average album with lots of potential to grow bigger and establish a steady name in the underground scene.
