Metsatöll

Band Background

Metsatöll is a band which roots were formed in Estonia on 1999.After several demos and member tryouts the current line up was finalized 2004. The name Metsatöll is an ancient Estonian euphemism for wolf.

Band has won several prices in Estonian Music Awards through out the years and was signed to Spinefarm Records 2008.

To celebrate the band’s 10th birthday, a 2DVD/CD Kõva Kont was released in 2009. More than five hours of music to watch and listen from years 2000-2008, it provides a thorough overview of the band’s history.It takes you to the rehearsals recorded in a basement and the very first gigs attended to the show at the Rabarock festival, cheered by a stadium full of people, and the concert Märkamisaeg, which was attended by an audience of more than 100 000.

Metsatöll has played over 350 gigs during the years and toured in Europe,UK and US,last touring partners in Europe have been Ensiferum and Finntroll among the others.

The new album by Metsatöll, Ulg (The Howl) was recorded, from start to finish, from writing the songs to the recording of the last screams and bagpipe tootles, among the forests of Southern Estonia, away from city noises and everyday hectic life.

When the Tölls first gathered in the Pihlaka farmstead to record few new demo tracks, there were no plans to lay down the new tracks so briskly. How ever, the bins of demo recordings were overflowing with immensely thick sounds already after the first few minutes, and the entire collective was so productive and crammed with bold inspiration that a decision was made to pound the entire album down right there on the spot. For preparing the amplifiers, microphones and other necessary junk, help was provided by the legendary Finnish sound engineer Mikko Karmila. During the entire recording session, the record button, and unfortunately the delete button too, was pressed by the no less legendary Estonian sound engineer Keijo Koppel.

The radio single Land Full of Stones from the new album Ulg (The Howl) tells the story of primeval Estonian stubbornness and doggedness, characteristics which we are immensely proud of, but which unfortunately do not always lead to effectual accomplishments.
