Vere Kutse Kohustab

The reader can make up their own minds on the subject of Loits' agenda, which as usual with politically challenging Metal is tentative and highly equivocal, with the band keen to denounce what they are not rather than commit publicly to what they actually are. Their passion for Estonian nationalism is however backed up by impressively pumping war metal that is infinitely more thoughtful than many in the field. An excellent passage opens this album by coupling lush acoustics over a sombre but pounding drive, setting sights high from the start. Elsewhere, the accorian that is intelligently employed furthers the sense of culture and heritage that Loits are obviously keen to propagate. Possibly the most effective creative point about this album is its lack of blasting and concentration on a solid, insistent dirty 4x4 swaggering beat, as popularised by you-know-who for a million others to copy. But Loits have at least infused their material with a seriousness and intelligence that is beyond the grasp of usual NS banalities. Nothing on this cd equals its opener, but it is solid, stern and somehow melancholic rather than triumphant; a much more entertaining proposition. Make of the imagery what you will, but the music is definitely worthwhile.

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!
