Editorial Reviews

2013 release, the seventh studio album by the Finnish Death Metal band. Founded in 1998 by guitarist and vocalist Pekka Kokko after his former band, Ancestor, disbanded. The band's name comes from a Karelian word that translates as 'to the grave'. This album will make the third time the word `Swamp' has appeared in their album titles.

I first jumped into Kalmah with their album Swampsong and was immediately a fan. Seventh Swamphony keeps me listening to everything they've ever made and loving it.

After I listened to Swampsong, on came The Black Waltz with some amazingly blitzing rhythms (Defeat, Time Takes Us All) as well as the mounting doom track The Black Waltz which raises the hair on the back of my neck every time during the solo! For the Revolution and 12 Gauge are definitely two of my favorite albums as the big melodic chanting and choirs get me crazy with their songs (Hook the Monster, Dead Man's Shadow).

Now that I'm done tell you how much I just love Kalmah, I'll tell you about their new 8-track album, Seventh Swamphony.

For me, it's the good stuff right from the get-go. The low grumble lyrics, the high gain palm muted guitars mixed so artistically with that damaging symphonic solo. Just delicious to listen to.

Deadfall and Pikemaster seem like pretty cut and dry Kalmah for me. Heavy rhythms, great keyboard and guitar work all charged by the rolling and galloping drums.

When the tracks change to Hollo and Windlake Tale, things change a little bit into something a little bit slower and perhaps going for a bit more epic and storytelling than I was expecting. Windlake Tale surprised me 2/3 of the way through when it just metalsploded with its solo. I would put Wolves on the Throne in this same category. The keyboard solo and general synth sound they added sure gave a great dreading and aggressive feel to the song when mixed with all of the rest of the brutality.

The album ends with Black Marten's Trace (high energy and maniacal-like)and The Trapper (deep, dark, and foreboding), both good energy tracks with which to end the album.

Overall, I absolutely love it. I was ecstatic to get it and still ecstatic to listen to it blasting out of the stereo. I'm all pumped up just thinking about it, now I have to listen to it again!

Pretty damn good album, if I must say so. The keyboards on this album are more prevalent than previously. Which isn't a bad thing, despite what some people might tell you or who might shrug off the keyboard as just pixie dust of a cheap CoB knockoff. "Black Marten's Trace", for example, has a keyboard audible during the chorus, making it about ten times catchier.

Same vocals as the past albums, low and guttural, with occasional shrieks here and there, as expected of kalmah.

The lyrics themselves focus on the environment, or hunting. "Black Marten's Trace,"
(Damn, that's a good song,) tells a stoy of someone hunting down an animal, (or is it a human? Dun dun dun....) and tells about how he reads his tracks, waits patiently, and occasionally becomes lost inside the snowy forest, but he's determined to get it, (whatever 'it' might be.)

I can't really write much more than what's already been said or what's obvious. this album rocks very hard, so the only advice I can give is; go out and buy it. You buy now, yes? Yes.

The only complaint I have is that it's kinda short, with only 8 tracks in the whole album. But I suppose quality is better than quantity, and if they made more songs with less quality, I'm definitely not one to complain.

All in all, another solid, heavy album from one of the greatest melodeath bands that still matter today. Great work, keep it up!

Popped this CD in the car for my hour-long commute to work. Could I understand most of the words? Nope. But what I did hear was some of the finest melodic death metal in years. Kalmah's last few albums were good, but this one just blows them out of the water.

1. Seventh Swamphony -- The opening track just explodes right out the gate. These guys aren't F'ing around. Beautiful melodic guitar solo in the middle. Evokes images of brackish swamps with swarms of mosquitoes hovering overhead.

2. Deadfall -- Keyboard presence definitely noticeable in a good way. This song is about hunting ducks apparently, so you should skip over it if you're against that sort of thing.

3. Pikemaster -- Again, keyboards making another strong appearance.

4. Hollo -- A slower track with clean vocals making brief appearances. A forlorn tale about a bird calling out for its mate, not knowing its nest was destroyed by people cutting down trees. Definitely a hit for the environmentalists out there.

5. Windlake Tale -- WINDLAKE TALE! Love this track. No idea what it's supposed to be about, but who cares? Sick guitar harmonies at breakneck speed and great vocal work.

6. Wolves on the Throne -- I was disappointed that this song was NOT about the Starks of Winterfell. Great song nonetheless.

7. Black Martens Trace -- Sonically pleasing to my ears.

8. The Trapper -- Saved the best for last. One of Kalmah's finest in my opinion. It's a culmination of everything that makes these guys great.

I drive. I drive with the windows down and let the warm air ravage my hair. I can tell the other drivers like Kalmah a lot. They stare at me in a hypnotic trance.. instantly realizing they know NOTHING and unbeknownst to them, nearly avoid paralysis.. just trying to process the totality of the gift they have just received..

If you are fan of either old or new Kalmah get this album! Seventh Swamphony truly delivers on all fronts! It's brutal, fast and melodic! Once again Kalmah do it again! Hail!
