Kalmah's last album, The Black Waltz, was something of a sensation in the melodeath world. Shunning the mainstream direction of many of their peers, it masterfully combined the beautiful meoldy, intricate playing and neo-classical stylings that are very much a staple of the genre with a sense of aggression, brutality and power usually heard only on 'un-melodic' death metal records. As such I had high hopes for For the Revolution, yet i was also anxious as there was a possibility that they might muscially take some steps backwards, as so often happens after a band breaks out of their original sound. Well, i managed to get my filthy hands on a promo copy of For the Revolution and here's how it went.

The title track opens the album like a grenade in my face, burning with convition, aggression and brutality. It combines the heavier style of 'The Black Waltz' with the technical and power metalish sounds of earlier albums efforlessly (mirrored in the use of both high and low growls) with some cool time changes and let me pause for a breath before i tell you how apocalyptically epic chorus and outro are. I can imagine legions of fans with fists in the air screaming the refrain 'FOR THE REVOLUTION'. I'm already as happy as a fat kid in a candy store when we get another surprise in 'Dead Mans Shadow', a melodiuos and mid paced song which sounds more like Mors Principium Est or Dark Tranquillity (Damage done/character era). A great track, showing a more mature Kalmah then usual with very prominent use of keyboards. And before i've even had a chance to wonder if the band might be going soft on me, 'Holy Symphony of War' (great title eh?

5.0 out of 5 stars PlayStation controls children's lives! 12 Aug. 2008
By MarquisdeSade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Yet another solid release by the dependable quintet. Not that I was expecting anything else.

I'll try to keep this short and not repeat what the last reviewer said. In this album, the lyrics are less abstract and more about war (or anti-war, I should say) and revolution. The title of the review is a line from "Holy Symphony of War", and the title track is an unrelenting brutal-yet-melodic call to rise and revolt. Some lyrics are cheesy/eyebrow-raising (e.g., Wings of Blackening), but I'm not holding that against them... it's melodeath after all :)

The drumming is exceptional as usual. The keys are used in wonderful cohesion with the guitar lines, such as in the track Outremer. One "downside" of the album is that there aren't really any slow tracks (with the exception of perhaps Ready for Salvation), so it's a somewhat energy-sapping 44 minutes.

If you're new to Kalmah, this may not be the best album to start at; Kalmah's high-speed melodic style is exemplified best (in my opinion) in Swampsong where the vocalist uses a (really awesome) lower pitch growl throughout (he switched to traditional death vox in The Black Waltz). For people who (like me) love melodeath but don't much like plain old death metal, start at one of the earlier albums and work your way forward.

Recommended tracks: For the Revolution, Dead Man's Shadow, Wings of Blackening, Outremer, Like a Slave.
4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Melodic Death Metal Album 12 Dec. 2012
By thebuyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
For the Revolution is a blast of keyboard symphonies and amazing guitar hooks. The album is really memorable but lacks the heavier riffing and intensity of its predecessor The Black Waltz. That being said FTR is still satisfying if you would rather be listening to Kalmah's more melodic material.

The middle of the record can fade into the background if you're not paying attention, but it picks up for the last three tracks. A good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its no Black Waltz, but its still Kalmah 26 Oct. 2008
By Easy L - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Kalmah seems to be one of those bands that doesn't like to change their sound like some of those other 'lilly pad jumper' bands out there. Instead they just rely on progressing their music, as in just getting better with playing, song composition, timing, and instrumental blending. Alas if you lay out Kalmah's discography and listen to each one in order of release (probably with the exception of Black Waltz), you will notice that not only does the latter of each released album just sound more cool, but it is actually better than the one before it.

It is actually quite impressive how far this band has come. FTR is very instrumental, well composed, progressively thrashy melodic death metal at its core. And the vocalist has backed off some of the death vocals and threw in some more of higher thrash vocals like older Kalmah did. So with that said, I'll leave to you to imagine how outstanding For the Revolution sounds compared to its predecessors.

For The Revolution is definitely a nominee for album of the year but the reason I give only 4 stars is simple: ITS NO BLACK WALTZ. And if every album Kalmah put out sounded like The Black Waltz then it woundn't be that great of an album, now would it?

One of Top 3 bands of all time.
I guess this one also slightly differs in color from the earlier albums, but so what?
Kalmah is just continuously evolving and I like all of their products.
