Vere Kutse Kohustab

Loits is no everyday Black Metal band with Pagan influences! Instead praising Satan or Odin this band's topics are Estonian history and nostalgia and fatherlandslove connected to it. With that they are absolutly free of "scene dogmas", but remain, voluntarily, dedicated to Black Metal as form of expressions, although they developed an own style, which does not hesitates from experiments. The hard inner of "Vere Kutse Kohustab", which consists halfly of the songs of their 7"EP-trilogy, is hard and grim Black Metal, not typically nordic, and some good Rock-elements, which make the music through its groove even better flowing into your blood.
Therefore helpfully is the constant mid-tempo, but the album uses its possibilities in this frame optimally. It's never boring, e.g. because of some for this genre untypical guitar-effects or sudden use of a march-music-sample. Closeness to their home and pride are always noticable feelings that unite the album. The vocals are reminding of traditional Black Metal and impressed me a lot. The very strong, grim voice is comparable in its grimness to old Immortal ... great to hear! Why can't there be such a voice in German!? ... Sometimes the original clear vocals play a leading role and lead to the most nostalgic moments on this album, which combines melancholy, hardness and hatred such impressingly. After song title 12 there is a nice "hidden track".
The CD, which looks like a small LP, includes a very tasteful designed multimedia-part.
Result: To make it to the really big ones there are a little bit of these "aha"-moments missing... those moments that let you stop breathing. Nevertheless "Vere Kutse Kohustab" is doubtlessly a very good album, which stands out from all those releases with a special, own character. I'm sure we will hear more of Loits in the future!
