By: Michel Score: 8,5/10 Release: 7-3-2014 Label: Spinefarm Records We had to wait quite a while for this new album ‘Karjajuht’ by Metsatöll. The previous studio-album ‘Ulg’ is from 2011, in the meantime we got the great live album ‘Tuska’ named after the great festival. The albums starts nice at once with a beautiful ethnic tune, very nice. And it stays nice when the usual solid Metsatöll sound joins in.
By: Michel Score: 8/10 Release: 19-11-2013 Label: Spinefarm Records Metsatöll has released quite a number of albums over the years.

The album really takes off at the second half of track 2. That’s a pity, a bad start like this.
By: Dorien Score: 9/10 Metsatöll released their ninth album already and it has become as you might aspect from a band like Metsatöll. Fierce, folk and still in ‘that language’ of you which you don’t understand a thing. It’s difficult to say anything about the lyrics when you don’t understand them.
