Vere Kutse Kohustab

Just to have the idea of recording this stuff I would quote words coming from the band: "This album is dedicated to all Estonian freedom fighters, who sacrificed their years of youth for battling against the enemy...". "Vere Kutse Kohustab" is the second full-lenght album from the Estonians which music can be described as melodic black metal with heathen / patriotic values. With the first listening I`ve got the impression of manifoldness, variety which has taken me to the point that I have thought I don`t even like the album. But after the third listening I just has begun finding hidden turning back points of the album. First of all the album is sung in Estonian language what is making it more original and reaching the listener. It has also some catchy riffs, which are maybe not the most likeable parts for me in the Loits`s music, but very similar to Sartyricon ones (e.g. "Furor Aesticus"). In general the whole album musically is close to the Scandinavian performes from some years ago. Anyway it`s carried to the Estonian ground and given some Baltic atmosphere little bit. I think the whole music is enriched with a great graphic layout concept of the cd (digi and jewel case) and lp although I possess promo version so can`t be sure of that. One is sure, the cd contains great multimedia bonus where you can read about the album`s concept by turning the pages of the book and listening to the warlike "Raiugem Ruunideks" track!

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!
