KALMAH to release new album “Palo” in April

Written by Hardwired Crew

Finnish melodic death metal crew KALMAH will release their eighth studio album “Palo” on April 6th via Spinefarm, and the album’s first single named “Evil Kin” can be streamed below.

As the band says, “Palo” marks a moment where, after years of toiling in the underground, Kalmah is coming to its own. “Almost 30 years of swamp madness and here we are today representing our eighth album with fishing tridents sharpened shiny. The album stands strongly on the very roots of Kalmah sound yet introduces fresh breath from the Swamplord’s tar-stained lungs. ‘Evil Kin’ as the first single gives you riffs written back in 1991 blended with melodies of Kalmah today. It’s a perfect statement to show where we were and are right now”, says guitarist Antti Kokko.

“Palo” track listing:

01. Blood Ran Cold
02. Evil Kin
03. The World Of Rage
04. Into The Black Marsh
05. Take Me Away
06. Paystreak
07. Waiting In The Wings
08. Through The Shallow Waters
09. Erase And Diverge
10. The Stalker

In a time when others in the melodic death metal genre increasingly lap up influences from more commercial and contemporary genres of music, Kalmah stays true to its roots of death metal, Finnish melodic heritage, and themes of Northern nature and the folly of mankind.
