Guest review by

Kalmah's second album, released in 2001, is appropriately named "They Will Return" because Kalmah did return, bringing with them more amazing melodic death metal. "They Will Return" is loaded with speed, awesome riffs, solos and of course, the band's unique reptilian vocals.

The intro song "Hollow Heart" reflects the band's swamp theme, with splashing, footprint sounds that fade into guitar riffs. The song launches quickly into a fast paced, melodic song with more melody from the keyboards and drums that flow with the song. The album's title song "They Will Return" starts off with a mini drum solo, and brings some more speed and flowing guitar melodies and solos.

Kslmah produced this album with in six weeks which itself is phenomenon especially when it is one of their best effort.. Hollow Heart and kill the idealist are in my opinion the best kalmah songs till to date

This album is Great! Kalmah's 2nd best album IMO, better than Swamplord, yet not as good as Swampsong. And also the song "The Blind Leader" has got the most intense fast paced high energy solo in History!! Be shure to check out that song!!!

Great album, better then their first in my opinion, but the Skin O' My Teeth, not only is a pretty weak cover but doesn't feat well at all with the rest of the album

Better than the debut. Better production and tighter riffs & soloing. Still some repetitive generic songs in between.
