Metsatöll
Hiiekoda

While Pagan folklore metal may not be my strongest forte, the genre has always interested me fromtime to time as new bands have cropped up over the years-many of them gracing the pages of U! thanks to other writers` interest. Haling from Estonia, Metsatöll play a very spirted romp through folk-tinged numbers and a rumbling bard-like tales akin to Turisas and Finntroll at times. The use of various homeland instruments and vocals chants add a unique quality to their frequent hard metallic drives, most notably on tracks like "Rauavanne", "Söjahunt" and the title track. Not something I´d put on every week, but an album I´ll indeed go back to from time to time and digest the fun`n`diverse nature of Hiiekoda.
