Metsatöll "Durch Die Augen Eines Wolfs"
(Interview von LaughingMoon/Basti) Mit ihrem jüngsten Longplayer Karjajuht machen Metsatöll aus Estland der alteingesessenen Folkmetal-Elite ernstlich Konkurrenz und zeigen deutlich, wo im Baltikum der Folk-Hammer hängt! Logisch, dass wir da genauer nachbohren mussten. Sänger und Fronthüne Markus stellte sich unseren Fragen via Mail-Interview.

Metsatöll - Durch Die Augen Eines Wolfs

Hello guys, how are you doing? According to your new album "Karjajuht", I guess the reactions from fans and the press won't be that bad, right?
Yes we are happy that this album has brought us up to light more than previous albums. We have received many good reviews from all over the world. And the presentation gigs in Finland and Estonia went also really well. I guess I can say that we and the fans are relived.

First of all, what does "Metsatöll" mean?
“Metsatöll“ is an ancient euphemism for wolf. Wolf for me carries this mystic and ancient timeless touch and I think the name suits for our music pretty good. Many of our older songs are written like through wolves eyes.

In your home country Estonia your albums entered the charts, even I read from Estonia's most popular metal band when I first came into contact with your music. Would you ever have believed that when you founded Metsatöll?
This is true miracle yes. I never expected that 15 years ago when I founded the band. I thought that I would do two shows a year in small clubs or one bigger metal festival we have here. And that's it. But look how life goes. Now we have 6 albums out, and we've played over 500 shows. And local radios don´t mind to play our music.

Without any doubt you must have a very strong fanbase. So please tell us something about the Estonian metal scene. Can you compare it with other countries?
I think our scene is small but strong. We have a lot of metal bands here and there are also a lot of concerts. It's really hard to compare our scene with other countries because Estonia is pretty small. But we have a really great site of our scene. There you have all the information a foreigner would need: Bands and their histories, albums, videos, active or not etc. I suggest that site.

While writing reviews, one is always looking for some similar bands to compare. What first came to my mind while listening to "Karjajuht" were Korpiklaani. Did they leave some impressions in your minds, especially after your common tour?
Maybe because „Karjajuht“ is our faster album but I tell you that we wanted to write shorter and faster songs earlier before we went to tour with Korpiklaani.

However your sound is much more serious and darker than Korpiklaani's. So please tell us what's a typical Metsatöll song about? What subjects do you express in your lyrics?
Our themes are timeless. It's about the life around us, but we write the lyrics with our ancient touch. Like we have in our music. There are songs about battles, wolfs, love, sea and nature. Also songs about having a good time and having sauna. Pretty folk metal.

On your Facebook profile I saw some very "special" fan merchandise, for instance Metsatöll bread and drinks. What's the intension behind creating such stuff?
Actually it was a bit of surprise to us also. I knew about the beer but the bread and sausage was like our record labels work in Estonia. We have three different types of bread and they all taste good. And in the end I kind of liked the idea because no other band in Estonia has done that. Dark bread matches to our music really fine. And the beer is absolutely perfect and I love the design.

Finally, would you be so kind and give some last words to our german readers, or anything you want to share with them?
Hope to be back soon. Cause last time we toured Germany was too long ago and as I remember Germany did really good in football when we were there. So even if you don´t like us you need us. Vielen Dank! :)

Thank you too for doing the interview, we hope to see you live on stage soon!
