Black metal band from Tallinn, Estonia.
Loits, having started out with rather straightforward pagan black metal back in 1996 and still staying true to their roots, have managed to carve out a totally fresh and quite original heavy music genre of distinctly melancholic atmosphere.
So far, the activities of Loits have met with success. Their second album, “Vere Kutse Kohustab”, managed in a couple of months to become a thus-far-undethroned bestseller for their record label of the time, Ledo Takas Records. “Ei Kahetse Midagi”, their debut, has been released by ten different companies in many countries all over the world (Estonia, Ukraine, Latvia, Mexico, Germany, France); most of the pressings have by now been sold out. Loits latest album "Must Album" has received warm welcome from international metal press and therefore has won over even more Loits fans than previous two releases combined (7,5/10 Terrorizer, 13/15 Legacy, 3,5/5 Inferno Magazine, 4/6 Imhotep, 9,3/10 Metal Storm, 5/5 FHM Eesti, 4,25/5 The Metal Crypt, 9/10 SUE etc).
"Estonia must have a loit more to offer if this metal outfit are anything to go by. They are our favourite exporter of rock from the Eastern Bloc, especially as they dig days of yore and military re-enactments. Hiilgav!" Text in Fear Candy 46 booklet (Terrorizer).
Loits are justifiably considered a strong live act. It is indeed at the concerts that their veritable energy is released in its purest form.
