Guest review by

When it comes to melodic death metal, Kalmah are a band not known by too many people. And for those people who know them there are a lot of different opinions. They are often compared to CoB and Norther because of the clear facts that make these bands stand out somehow: One, they are all from Finland and two, they all play melodic death metal. Anyone who has bothered taking a look still knows the differences between bands and describing them here would be impossible, a song can tell you more than thousand words.

Rating: 7 Definitely NOT a favorite from their albums, there's songs that aren't anything special, just ok. Since this is their debut album there's something remarkable to it: that interesting combination of guitar leads and riffs, and unique style in guitar solos. Especially the guitar leads are a trademark characteristic in Kalmah's sound, found in every album, this one being no exception. Favorite moment: the second half of "Hades".
