Vere Kutse Kohustab

I had reviewed previously two 7"EPs of this young Estonian band [Legion Estland and some other which I don't remember the title right now], but I deleted those reviews in order to do this one, due to the fact that this album is their last work to date.
Loits is a young band, and I admit, I'm very cautious about young bands. Very few have this high level of professionalism. And this is their second album, released with a superb presentation and production. The cd comes in a special edition with booklet and a great multimedia presentation, and the LP is worthy of being checked out as well.
Ok, now to the point: Loits play a mixture of a midtempo Nordic Black Metal basis, some folk and rock'n roll elements. Their songs sound fresh and catchy and heavily personal. The songs are sung in their native language: Estonian, although the respective English translations are of course included here: as I said, in the interview, the songs are mainly historic and nationalistic, with emphasis in the Estonian conflicts during WWII, which they vindicate not only through their attitude, but aesthetics and historic facts.
Some of the songs here presented were previously included in their previous 7"EPs, but this time they have been re-recorded, making them sound even more powerful.
Ledo Takas is supporting the ever growing eastern european scene, filled with great bands such as this one, as all that I've heard from those lands is great. Get this album!

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!
