Vere Kutse Kohustab

Loits, from Estonia have now released their second assault, 'Vere Kutse Kohustab', an album released on Ledo Takas Records alongside albums by the likes of Obtest, Dissimulation, and also Nahash. And yeah, you probably guessed, Loits are a black metal band.
'Vere Kutse Kohustab', over 55 minutes in duration, varies from a slower pace to high speed but overall it prefers to stay at an energetic mid-pace bounce. The combination of in-your-face punchy, grim black metal ala latter-day Moonfog recordings, the subterranean, dirty grooves similar to Khold, some folkish slashings, accordion surprises, indifferent atmospheres, and some good old rock'n roll is what Loits bring to the battlefield. The 12 tracks are diverse, always interesting, never uneventful...but not overly outstanding. They do have a lot of moments that are highly enjoyable where I can't help but my grin to myself and think that these guys are just having fun playing...although in saying that, Loits appear to be a very patriotic, militaristic band and serious about their lyrical content.
Sticking to the Baltic tongue, if you mixed the following elements of three particular voices; the gargle of Abbath (Immortal), the delivery and roughness of Gard (Khold), and an evil touch of the Emperor from the movie 'Star Wars'...I think then you'd be very close to Lembetu's vocals.
Overall, 'Vere Kutse Kohustab' is very enjoyable in its consistency and its quality endurance, although I think if Loits were to totally excel in the black metal scene, then they are going to need to push themselves further on their next release...BUT, don't get me wrong, this is a very strong record and they will get more recognition from this rather than being an unknown statistic.
