Must album

Here we have a band that is still relatively unknown in our Western countries. «Must Album» is in fact their third full length (but they already released two DVDs, three EPs and three demos). Even if this new work is quite different from what I heard many years ago on their previous productions unleashed through Ledo Takas records, there still seems to be a unique sound with this Estonian act that you don’t find elsewhere. The first thing that struck me about Loits’s new album is the fact that they don’t really sound very black metal. The album starts with a kind Satyricon structure coupled with a huge nowadays (I mean rock ‘n’ roll / crust orientated sound) Darkthrone background and generally continues that way throughout. I must now have listened to this «Must Album» about seven times and I just can’t make my mind about the ‘new’ Loits musical direction. Of course, it’s absolutely not the heaviest album ever written but on the other side, it features some very good song-writing and almost enchanting melodies I’ve heard for many months. Generally, the mood here is heroic rather than grim and it’s more than obvious that a lot of effort has been put into the creation of strange and different atmospheres. Nice and original.
