Metsatöll
Hiiekoda

Let me just start off by saying, those of you that don't already know, I am a huge folk metal fan, in fact, it is my favorite genre of metal. I listen to a lot of various sounding folk metal bands, and I have heard some unusual stuff. Well this band, Metsatöll, is one of those weird bands. If you have not heard of this band, no worries as they are probably just about as underground as you can get, without being black metal. Although they are signed to a label (Nailboard Records, which I have no idea who the hell that is) it is hard to find anything on them. These guys are from Estonia, and to be honest I don't even know where that is. Their vocals are all sung in the Estonian language I guess, I'm not exactly sure. Although I am a huge folk metal fan, I must admit I'm not too satisfied with this album, mainly because the vocals are just nasty. Markus really can't sing, I don't even know why he tries. The music is really cool, very folk oriented and heavy. These guys would do good with a vocalist such as Jari Mäenpää (Wintersun) instead of who they have.

Another downer about this album is the fact that it has 18 tracks, and is filled with bullshit and useless songs which start to get annoying after a while. But, luckily they do use a lot of cool instruments that folk metal bands tend to use.

If your looking for good kick ass folk metal avoid this, but if you are a true folk fan and are looking to hear all you can that this genre has to offer than be my guest, but don't say I didn't warn you. Advice I have for this band is get a new vocalist and cut the crap and just play metal, don't dick around with useless filler tracks.
