Metsatöll
Hiiekoda

These guys are from Estonia and this is their sophomore album. Their music is a mixture between traditional metal and ancient Estonian folk music and you can find influences from In Extremo in their music. I liked the fact that they are using real traditional Estonian instruments and not synthesizers or samples. Their songs are not bad, although the arrangements could use some improvement. One thing that definitely needs to be improved in the future is the production since sometime the instruments are not on the right level, some are too up front, while some others (especially the guitars) are too much in the back. It sounds a bit sterilized and not as aggressive or heavy as it should be. The vocals are another thing that could be a bit better. But the album is certainly interesting and people who like their metal served with a folk toping and ancient, traditional instruments and influences will find some things to like.
