The Best of Estonian Metal
The Best of Estonian Metal
Metsatöll's music draws inspiration from traditions and an ancient Estonian dialect. The lyrics often carry the listener into the obscurity of the forest, full of wolves and other creatures.
The music is heavily influenced by folk music. Lauri Õunapuu's folk instruments, such as bagpipes and the harp, give the band a unique sound.
The November released album Ulg, has received much praise. The album was recorded in the middle of a southern Estonian forest, far from the noise of the city.
The Estonian folk metal band Metsatöll was established in 1999 in Tallinn. The band's current members have been together since 2004.
Their debut album 'Terast mis hangund me hinge" was released in 1999. Metsatöll has released 5 albums in total. They have performed 300 times in over 10 countries.
