Vere Kutse Kohustab

Estonian LOITS are a 5-piece metal band with a female keyboard player which mixes a dark, moody black metal sound with an 8-beat rock 'n' roll attitude (they call it "Flak 'n' Roll), producing something I'm still not fully decided on.
On one hand, they are a bit fun to listen to and the music is good and interesting. On the other hand, it's some of the music which I don't think is accessible for every metal fan as it is sung only in Estonian language and handles a serious historical theme like the cover artwork already speaks itself. It can be a great originality and an appealing feature if they sing about the history of homeland in their native tongue, but as long as I don't understand what they sing, my enthusiasm about the band and their music will be damped.
Including some spoken words in music, they build up a moody, dramatic song with more of the harsh black vocals, intricate tempo changes and simple chord-bashing with a dash of folky keyboards. It's difficult to make the amalgam of references, but it's uniquely heavy and uniquely catchy in any case. LOITS' Flak 'n' Roll (for me rather "Black 'n' Roll") is quite an underground thing for me. I will, however, get back to them again if I have a chance to understand their lyrics. They must be very interesting.

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!
