Hukkunud Hinged
"Tühjusesse Suurde"

[01] Loojangu Laul
[02] Juurte Nukrus

Estonian Doom Metal isn't something that you're likely to hear on a daily basis so make sure you pay special attention. This two track single entitled "Tühjusesse Suurde" is creeping and oozing with Black Metal influence but is too slow in pace for that moniker and so fits quite nicely into the Doom catagory.As well as the obvious there is a small element of folk leanings in opening track "Loojangu Laul" mainly in the vocal area and that along with an extremely prominent bass player makes this adequately eye catching. It has an Eastern European feel to it also and although there is nothing specific within the melody that hints at it's ex-Russian state beginnings it does have a raw brilliance that reeks of frost bitten winters, hardship and toil. Where I feel that Hokkunud Hinged really come into their own though is finale track "Juurte Nukrus" with it's intricate melodic intro and it's rasping Doom fury as it plunges headlong into sturdy deep riffs that shatter the peace splintered ice when met by a vicious force. Vocally these estonians often come across as almost Satanic and musically they are pleasing whilst never really stepping up a gear. You may say that there is nothing too original here but "Tühjusesse Suurde" definetely has it's folky charms and above all is well worth a listen. [6.5]
