Metsatöll
Terast mis hangund me hinge 10218

Now Metsatoll really do sound like a band from Estonia. Once again I have no idea what they’re actually singing about, the title translates as Steel Frozen in Our Souls. Sounds like a rather colourful mix of what I imagine Estonian pagan/drinking/fighting/folk music to sound like - a kind of epic blend of bombastic metal, odd time signatures and traditional folk based around what I’m told is old Estonian runo-singing. Traditional instruments (including what we’re intriguingly told is a stinking drum) weave around metal riffs and thrashy drums. Seems they’ve become “a paragon or a symbol of the preservation and revival of national culture and the Estonian language” – I really hope that if that is the case then things are done in the right way here. Nationalism bothers me, healthy preservation (and evolution) of artistic culture that has some kid of root in a place and time – fine. I have no idea what Metsatoll are singing about, they sound rather good, they’re intriguing and almost certainly unique and their metal sounds rather like Tarantula Hawk (that is a massive compliment). This is really rather good, Metsatoll are well well worth your time and further investigation
