This is the first CD i have purchased from Kalmah and i was encouraged to by the song itself: 12 Gauge. The vocals are deep and the growls are amazing and there are many melodic riffs throughout whole album. The keyboards are heavy (Which i like) coming from a hardcore Children Of Bodom fan and this album is great throughout every song. If you like the song 12 gauge, i definitely recomend getting this album as it shows all aspects of this album.

This is the first Kalmah album I've ever purchased after looking for bands similar to others that I enjoy listening to. They are awesome! I love the album and am listening to it 2/3 times a night! If you like melodic black metal or Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy and CoB or anyone like that do yourself a favour and listen to this one.

Looking online this isn't even their highest rated album by fans and it's amazing so I now have all other Kalmah CD's ordered as I like it that much! Apart from Swampsong I can't find that at a decent price.

I've been following Kalmah for the last few years and was expectantly waiting for 12 Gauge, but I had no idea I was going to be as stunned as I was. The album sees Kalmah really coming into their own with possibly their most their most mature, focused and well written work to date. And even though FTR was a pretty good album, nothing could have prepared me for the no holds barred battering that 12 Gauge had in store.

Overall, the album sees a slight move away from the melodeath and neo-classical/baroque sounds to accommodate a heavier classic/traditional metal and thrash influence. It's quite a subtle change, but an important one, as you can hear the band laying tribute to their 80s idol Metallica, Megadeth and Maiden throughout and also distancing themselves from a sounds which has been plagerized to death. The guitar playing between the brothers Kokko is sublime; their cerebral interplay of riffs, harmonies and solos is out of this world. Its also interesting that they've used acoustic guitars to great effect on 3 or 4 tracks. On the flip side, Marco Sneck's keys are downplayed slightly, giving much more background texture aside from the odd lead riff and key solo. But less is certainly more in this case, as his wonderful keys give the album a very epic, almost cinematic feel which gives plenty of room for the guitars (this is definitely a guitar players album) but keeps the sinister atmosphere perfectly. And, as always, the rhythm section of Timo Lehtinen and Janne Kusmin is tight and thunderous.

The album kicks off like something out of a spaghetti Western with some beautiful classical guitars a wicked trumpet part (yes, a bloody trumpet) and I'm already feeling shades of Metallica and Megadeth as the distortion fades in and BAM!
