Here we have a remake of Metsatöll’s 1999 record, Terast Mis Hangund Me Hinge; the number 10218 that appears on the remake is a reference to how old the world is according to Estonian chronology (the title translates as something like “Steel Frozen in our Souls”). I can’t get my hands on the original record (it had a limited pressing, damnit) so I couldn’t say how this remake has changed the face of the songs, but I can tell you that whatever differences there may be, the record is outstanding. Metsatöll create a raging folk atmosphere over an impossibly catchy metal backdrop—and they do it well. The seeming ease with which they create amazing music is surprising. If you’re into folk metal at all, check out this band. You won’t regret it…even if you do have to buy an Estonian-English dictionary.
