Vere Kutse Kohustab

You have never seen a band quite like Loits. Trust me, you haven't! In a world full of masked, painted or reclusive bands, Loits are a complete one-off! This is the Estonian five piece's 2004 released album that took eight months to make, features incredible, surreal and emotive artwork and layout, and mixes all forms of black metal, be it cold and relentless, folk-infused, pagan leanings or beautifully quiet and atmospheric. In the vein of old Ulver, Windir, Belenos and maybe a little of Enslaved and a heavy Satyricon comparison, but all given a thoroughly unique, amazing re-dressing into WWII style soldier clothes, battle imagery, and, also quite unique is the fact they make it sound like they are having fun playing the serious edged music and delivering their important message to the world about Estonia's misunderstood involvement in the war. The additional good thing about Loits is that unlike most bands with a political or religious message, it isn't overbearingly done so much so that it spoils the music. The quality is definitely there first and foremost and a fantastic album is delivered for fans of all forms of black metal.
