Legion Estland

Black metal is a truly strange world. It´s not easy to find styles where the differences are that strong, not only musically but also philosophically and expressively. In the most cases the bands, not only the metal ones, just write marginal lyrics, to have something to speak about. And so among the usual fantastic stories or the most cruel tortures the room for a deepening of any kind is very limited. It does not happen this way in black metal, where often we are in front of bands that have something to say, and maybe, in their field, often exaggerate a bit...Loits is an unknown project coming from the baltic lands and which pushes a politically well placed concept, which they express through an impersonal cold black metal, not only debtor of masters like Dark Throne but also of more folk and traditional visions like Enslaved´s. The band of Fenriz remains a reference point for Loits but in this context the music´s not the role of leading character, since it is outshined by the belief of the group, made of a deep respect for their own fathers and for their struggle supported in the faraway 1944. The music is truly involving, since Loits are not afraid, and succeed to build rather well rhythmed dynamic songs, thanks to a cold cutting production, where the predominating black metal merges with folk matrixes but also with a taste for a sort of rock ´n´ roll riffing that gives the compositions the encessary energetic charge. Well, Loits is a particular band, author of an elitarian offer, but filled up with brightness and contents: a rare reality in a world, even the underground one, more and more often dominated by recycling plastic.
