Kalmah - Pekka Kokko Misses European Tour

As the Death Unleashed European Tour started on December 1st in Belgium (with Nothgard, Heretoir and Last In Grey), Kalmah's singer/guitarist Pekka Kokko faced medical issues and had to stay in Finland. Kalmah were quick to react and found two replacements by the name of Robse from German folk metal band Equilibrium and Pether Winterschmied from German melodic death metal act Burn Down Eden. As of yesterday, Pekka was still not present for the show in Berlin, and might not join at all since the tour ends today in Munich. An update from the band is expected soon.

Finnish metallers Kalmah have issued the following update on their official website:

"After inspiring hunting season Kalmah has found new keyboard player. We welcome Swamplord Veli-Matti Kananen (One Morning Left) on board! Velski has already played session gigs with us in Russia and Switzerland so we knew his skills and most of all his state of mindlessness.

We have started to write material for next album and so far we have 4 songs on the way - fast and fucked. New video will be shot next summer with mosquitos and Finnish swamp soil. Song for the video has already been chosen. Studio sessions will take place at the end of this year."
