Vere Kutse Kohustab

Something discrepant from Estonia.

When one is greeted by a warrior-monument on the CD cover, the title of the album is printed in blackletters and the logo of the band contains a life-rune, one should examine the lyrics of the band in question very closely. Because the pictures inside the booklet are quite militaristic it is even more important.

LOITS are from Estonia and present their second album with "Vere Kutse Kohustab" (Obliged By The Call Of Blood). They call their variant of Black metal "Flak'n'Roll", but I would suggest "Rock'n'Black" with influences of Folk instead.

The CD starts off with the smooth acoustic guitars of 'Soomepoiss', but change into a heavy storm after a fe seconds. 'Eesti Auks' and 'Aeg Ärgata' show the most prominent Rock'n'Roll features, while 'Võitluslipp' is remarkable because of its atmosphere. Without any doubt, LOITS master their instruments and know how to play Black metal that you can remember. A small treat in the form of a folksong is hidden after the end of the last regular song. Musically a fine work, indeed!

Why then is there no judgement in points for this album? Simply put: LOITS are, according to themselves and their label, not a right-winged band. However, I personally believe the nationalist lyrics, in Estonian, but English translations are available at the band's website, as well as the militaristic design, including pictures in WW2 uniforms, as too hard to digest. Therefore I cannot give a just final judgment on this CD.
