Format: Audio CD
Consistency is a quality that is often seems to elude even the best of metal bands, who often go though many highs and lows over the times. Hither came Kalmah. Year after year, these swamp-obsessed Finns put out consistently high quality releases of their own branded Swampmetal, and, in the wake of the epic metal colossi that was 2011's 12 Gauge, I approached Seventh Swamphony with both high expectations and a sense of trepidation; could this be the first time Kalmah release anything other then stunning? Well, Pekka and the boys have never let me down before, and it seems they're not about to start any time soon.

For those of you who unfamiliar with the band, Kalmah's swamp metal is basically their own take on Finnish-style melodic death metal with heavy baroque influences and lush keyboards. However, I've always felt Kalmah stand apart from the crowd by being darker, heavier, faster and less chessy, with some early Gothenburg influences and at times folkish/Vikingish leads, and for the last few albums, an 80s Megadeth/Metallica/Sepultura edge too.

Stylistically, the tongue in cheek-titled Seventh Swamphony sits somewhere in between the mighty 12 Gauge, and earlier albums like They Will Return. As always, the bands draws on a lot of variety, from blast beats and furious shredding to grandiose melodies and anthemic riffing, with the terrifying growls of Pekka Kokko anchoring neverything together. While it doesn't have the crushing heaviness of 12 Gauge, it carries on that albums trend of liberal drawings from the well of 80's thrash and classic metal, and while the guitar work is a bit lighter, it's definitely busier and a bit more flashy - not a bad thing in my eyes. Also, Seventh Swamphony has a much more vibrant melodies and key boards reminiscent of earlier material.

If you loved the other 6 Kalmah albums like I did then you will enjoy this just as much. I think they are definitely one of the best melodic death metal bands and their work has been consistently good. Seventh Swamphony is filled with lots of awesome guitar and keyboard solos as usual plus the familiar harsh growls are back. Although their formula hasn't changed much the songs still sound fresh and are very addictive. The only minor bad point I will mention are the brief clean vocals on track 4, they were terrible and there was no real need for them...other than that dodgy hiccup its beautiful! If this is your sort of thing I also recommend any album by Children of Bodom, Ensiferum, Equilibrium and Skyfire.

Kalmah did not disappoint, every song is just another excuse to continue listening instead of changing band.

Defiantly a must have for any Melodic death fan.
