Kalmo  are  a  solo  project  from  Finland  and  on  this  recording  goes  for  more  of  a  blackened  doom  metal  direction  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2021  album  "Gehinnom"  which  was  released  by  Sliptrick  Records.

  A  very  slow,  dark  and  heavy  doom  metal  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  a  few  seconds  later.  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  while  dark  sounding  melodies  are  also  added  into  some  of  the  guitar  riffing.

  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  dark  and  melodic  style  while  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  briefly  and  also  gives  the  recording  more  of  a  ritualistic  atmosphere.  One  of  the  tracks  also  introduces  clean  playing  into  the  music  as  well  as  all  of  the  music  also  sticks  to  a  slower  direction.

  On  this  recording  Kalmo  takes  his  very  slow  and  dark  style  of  doom  metal  and  mixes  it  with  elements  to  create  an  album  that  is  very  different  from  his  previous  releases.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  heavy  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Finnish  and  cover  tales  and  vision  of  the  inevitable  end  of  this  all.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Kalmo  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  blackened  doom  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Tuho"  and  "Marjaana".  8  out  of  10. - Blackened Death Metal Zine

Artist description in 400 characters:

Kalmo (cadaver in English) is a one-man metal band from Finland. Kalmo’s music is raw and dark doom metal spiced with a fistful of black metal. Lyrics written in Finnish tell tales and visions about the inevitable end of this all. Kalmo feasts on influences from old school metal bands like Celtic Frost, Slayer, Death Breath, Black Sabbath, and Master. Debut EP Demoni was released May 2019.

Artist description:


Before the dawn of Kalmo loomed in the horizon of the damned sky, Mika was a bass player in a blues band, writing lyrics to the band’s songs. About a decade ago an introit was sung and the seed of Kalmo was laid. The first song was ready. Several years passed with a flame steadily smouldering, scorching the darkened heart to vision a plan for more.

After finding a true name in Kalmo (cadaver in English), ominous visions of the inescapable doom have been falling into place in the darkness. There is only one mind, one lost soul in the core of Kalmo. The axes of doom guitars and bass are played and the dark cries are bawled by this man. The beat of doom is conjured up with the black magic of state-of-the-art, technical drumslade witchery.
The Debut EP Demoni was unleashed May 10th 2019. Demoni summarizes and concludes an episode in the Kalmo chronicles. Some of the EP’s songs are from very early years and some have been written within two years before the release. With this release, as a demonic rite of passage, Kalmo is hungry for more. New dark verses are being written. New evil psalms are being silently chanted in the darkness. The sinews of the sinister are gaining power. The doom will be inevitable.

In addition to the EP Demoni, Kalmo has released some singles and music videos. The videos are available at Kalmo’s YouTube channel.

Kalmo feasts on influences from true old school metal masters like Celtic Frost, Slayer, Death Breath, Black Sabbath, and Master. To add some more to the list, which could almost be endless, at least the names of Triptykon, King Diamond, Gallhammer, Hellhammer, Vorum, and Immortal must be spoken aloud.

At the moment the axes of doom spark the flames in the dark while the growling voice echoes from the walls of the deep dungeons. A new chapter of the book is soon ready. New songs are to be released soon.

The black crystal ball whispers of the tales of far future where there may be a slight possibility to complete the line up with fellow exhumated cadavers. That vision is still covered in dark mist and 6 feet of dirt. Should that hallucination incarnate, there may also be possibility to see Kalmo live.
