Vere Kutse Kohustab

Just a few months later here estonian Loits are back with a work that remarks a good musical growth, thanks to which new songs get merged with old classics to give life to a homogeneous personality-filled work. The movement towards pagan black metal of early Enslaved is a clear fact, and so they have almost completely abandoned the past Dark Throne references used in the past to focus on a more heroic and folk vision of music, that now closely follows the strong connotation the band gives their own lyrics inspired to a nationalistic spirit, sometimes a bit xenophobe. The pagan black metal they express in this “Vere Kutse Kohustab” (that could be translated as “obliged by the blood call”) is truly persuading, since the songs are not written in blind fury but with awareness, uniting violent sharpened scores with epic warlike openings, with the raw pathos-filled voice to remark the musical constructions the musicians arrange, constructions that also are based on the excellent work of the guitars, engaged with creating rows of riffs, not all so original but always fitting and well alternated, and on a diligent and accurate rhythmical section. The will to divagate has not abandoned the band, that in this sense follow the class of Enslaved, and so the gloomy black metal is put apart to make room for diversions, especially guitar oriented, that really enrich the work of original edges, though seeming unfitting at the first listening. The epic sense is the key to read the work, an intense album that is not that surprising from a band that had already expressed all of their enormous potential in the past. Go on this way.

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!
