What can be said about this amazing band? Well this release remains to be in my top 10 favorite albums for nearly four years now. Self described as “militant flak-n-roll” and it is just that! Think Motorhead meets Immortal with touches of Burzum for those who are uninitiated to the sounds of Loits. A lot of riff variation never leaves the listener bored. Often associated with the “pagan/folk black metal” genre, but these guys stand out within that genre due to their style and beliefs in addition to the more mid-paced metal. All songs are sung in their native Estonian language that also adds another layer of depth and individuality to their music.
Quote: "If anything it reminds me of Edith Piaf and sums up images of gnarly old villagers stubbornly playing draughts and drinking wine on the streets as bombs explode all around them."
I never actually liked the "hidden" song "Metsavendade laul" particularly, but this visual image brought it much closer to my heart. I'm not kidding when I say I had shivers down my spine after reading this passage. Thanks, Pete!
