Vere Kutse Kohustab

Well, well… LOITS managed to release their new album before I’ve finished this issue. Anyway, I think it’s good because now you have reviews of two efforts from this band here; and since both are very positive, I hope everyone who haven’t heard those Estonians yet will give them a chance and buy some of their releases. Believe me – there is some high quality music to find, LOITS plays some of the best black-metal sounds nowadays! “Vere Kutse Kohustab” is not an exception! This new album follows the path, which was marked by their previous releases, starting with debut CD “Ei Kahetse Midagi” (shit, how many years ago did I hear it for the first time? Is it already over two years?!). It’s a style that was progressing with every effort. It’s pure black-metal, with a proper dose of atmospheric playing… But don’t get me wrong – word “atmospheric” isn’t about some wimpy gothic / vampiric boring crap; it’s about playing your music in slower tempos, sometimes with a melancholic mood, it’s not also playing fast as hell! Everything in here is about creating a specific mood. There were many comparisons with early SATYRICON, ULVER in the past – there are still influences from those / such kind of bands, but definitely LOITS managed to transform it into something own. This band has its own personality, own style and sound and that’s a big achievement. I think that it’s because LOITS bases everything on things, which aren’t common in the Western Europe – like Estonian culture, traditions and patriotism… Also singing in Estonian is very unique and characteristic for them (but “Vere Kutse Kohustab” has also some English written lyrics). Generally, I don’t find many things I couldn’t like on this album. Actually it’s perfect for my taste, so I was listening to it day after day… I think that the only fault of “Vere Kutse Kohustab” I could personally find is “Furor Aesticus” track, which is just BURZUM song – there are riffs purely taken from one of the old Vickernes’ anthems… But I hope it was just an accident and won’t happen again he, he!

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!
