21:12 - Amatsu Mikaboshi I really enjoyed going through Candelabrums stuff. Rather 'gong-y' Zasthur vibes.
18:52 - !J.O.O.E.! It sounds more like it was recorded in a tunnel to me, rather than a cave.
18:13 - Apothecary That Candelabrum production really isn't that bad, I mean it's not the type I typically *prefer, but it does succeed in creating this really claustrophobic, cavernous type sound, which is cool
17:55 - Korah Yes, that new song's amazing!! What do you think about it ?

On Thursday, April 10th, flak'n'rollers Loits presented their latest video, "Haavad uulitsal" at the Kinomaja in Tallinn. The audience also witnessed a short "Making Of" flick and another video for the song "Emaraud", recorded during the band's live performance at the Hard Rock Laager '07 festival.

Two new songs 'Suudelda Neidu' and 'Soomusronglase Silmis' were added on official Myspace page of Estonian Black Metal outfit Loits. The two songs come from the upcomming new album "Must Album" wich will be release on 04.06.2007 through Nailboard Records.
Here's the "Must Album" tracklist again:
02. Soomusronglase Silmis
03. Suudelda Neidu
04. Kiri Kaevikust
05. Ei Kahetse Midagi
06. Veealune Valss
07. Peegli Ees
Nearly three years have passed since the release of "Vere kutse kohustab", but Loits have not left their guns rusting in the ditch. On Estonian Flag Day, June 4th, the long-awaited "Must album" ("Black album"), encompassing nine songs of unheard-of brilliance. The record is not unlike a picture album left behind by the grand-grandparents, documenting not only photographs, but also all the joy expereiced, as well as the tragedy of one small nation. "Must album" does not glorify the love for the fatherland or the soldier's valour, not the beauty of life or the pain of grief, although the latter one acts like the cord that twines the songs together. The new Loits album is a gift of remembrance to those departed, serving also as a reminderto all that injustice never dies.
MOONSPELL from Portugal, one of the world's best known and most loved gothic/doom metal legends, performs in the Club Illusioon in Tartu as part of the series of gigs under the aegis of the festival Green Christmas 2006. Also on the bill, in addition to Moonspell and after quite a long while, are the Estonian metal elite group LOITS. Other support performers include Before The Dawn and Embraze from Finland.
Gates is back
With regards to the Moonspell news, Loits are more than happy to announce that for quite some time Loits has been rehearsing with two guitarists. Their old comerade Gates is back in Loits. The first concert with the renewed line-up takes place on September 25, 2006, in Tartu, Estonia.
This is a happy occasion primarily for the South American comrades of Loits: the Mexican record label Witchcraft Records recently released a version of Loits' debut album "Ei Kahetse Midagi", targeted especially at the South American market. All parties interested, please hurry; the release is extremely limited - to only 500 copies. Witchcraft Records is officially manufactured and distributed in Mexico and worldwide by American Line Prods.
Loits and Nailboard Magazine
A new Estonian hard music mag Nailboard Magazine is published six times a year with more than 2000 copies printed. The mag can be bought in more than 300 locations all over Estonia. This piece of news has to do with Loits, too - namely, the magazine prints Loits's uncensored tour diary as a continuing series.
"Vere Kutse" -- The Story of the Origins of Flak'n'Roll Now on DVD
The respective movie was put together for the "Vere Kutse Kohustab" album presentation party. After a brief "tour" of Estonia the band decided to release the movie titled "Vere Kutse" on a DVD-R, since the number of people who wanted it for their private collections was growing rapidly.
The movie features several interviews with the band and the people close to the band as well as rare footage of concerts and of the European tour. Now that the movie is over a year old, it can very well be called a brief but concise overview of the story of the origins of both Loits as well as Flak'n'Roll. In a nutshell -- 45 minutes of tears, joy and rock'n'roll!!!
