By blackmarkedsign - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After listening to Kalmah's 1st and 2nd MP3 albums which I bought at bargain price, I wanted to own a real CD from them.
This one just as good as the ones above, maybe better, very addictive, loaded with full blast of everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars The beautiful music of the untouched swamps 21 Aug. 2005
By child_of_the_jester_race - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Kalmah is another band that I consider an essential part of the Melodic Death Metal scene. They are truely amazing musicians, but they have to be in order to be able to play this kind of music well. Their songs posses amazing melodies, melodic leads, hard riffs, speed, and tempo changes that will make most metal bands outside of this category look like amatures. They play divinely.

Kalmah have given us 3 major releases. "Swamplord", "They Will Return", and this album "Swampsong". One more amazing than the other, and if you are a fan of the genre, don't even finish reading this review, just go and get your hands on all three of these releases and begin worshipping, also get ready for their forth release coming soon at the end of this year or next year.

Kalmah have often been described as sounding too similar to Children of Bodom, and even Dark Tranquillity. I might agree to a certain extent that their sound is close to Children of Bodom, but definitely not Dark Tranquillity. I do not describe the similarity with COB as a negative though. In a certain genre you are bound to hear similarities between bands and obviously many more differences. In this release, Kalmah are pushing for speed and many riffs are faster than what we are used to other bands in this genre. Their aggression is also higher than the average Melodic Death Metal band, and their singer possesses a very distinguishable voice, making this band unique. When in arguments about originality, or similarity between bands in this category, for example Kalmah and COB I like to think of it as both of them taking from one of the creators of the genre - At The Gates - while both continuing to add to and advance this style of music.

I will attempt describing every song on this masterpiece. Note that the high ratings for every song, does not mean that I am biased just because I love this band, but it means that this release does not contain any fillers, unlike what we are usually used to with more famous yet less talented bands.

Heroes To Us - 10/10 - The opener of the album is also one of the greatest songs in the Melodic Death Metal world. It contains everything that defines this genre. We have a beautiful melodic introductory lead followed by extremely fast riffs that are extremly difficult to play. The melody is carried throughout the song and the guitarists add to it as they see appropiate in their styles. I must tell you that the keyboards on this whole album are more evident that their previous two releases, adding depth and atmosphere, especially when the songs slow down. Amazing riffs, Amazing solo, Amazing song!

Burbot's Revenge - 9/10 - excellent song from the strong opening riff which eventually gets elaborated by amazing guitarship. The songs gets extremely dense at the chorus, making you want to go crazy. I love the guitarship on all their songs. Brilliant work.

Cloned Insanity - 8.5/10 Another intense, melodic, fast, and unforgettable masterpiece of a song. Powerful from the start. There is a break in it where you have only a bass line playing then the keybords and guitars are added, and it bursts into another amazing solo, followed by the powerful chorus. amazing how they can write material like this.

The Third, The Magical - 10/10 - One of my favourite songs in here. This is not as aggressive of a song as the previous two, but very powerful and moving. The music is incredible and I love the riffs. The singing goes really well on this song. And the choruses are extremely powerful and beautiful. Many times have I been transported to a truely magical world when listening to this masterpiece.

Bird Of Ill Omen - 9/10 - Carries on from The Third, The Magical with a similar melodic lead, but then hits you so hard with a wall of heaviness that actually hurts. But like I always say it is a very enjoyable pain. Incredible. More incredible how the verse riff makes you recover from the bashing and reminds you that we are dealing with a very melodic and talented band. Again every riff here is amazing. Brilliant song, keybords gaining a more important role here.

Doubtful About It All - 9.5/10 - Brilliant song. The riffs here are just incredible. The guitarists have outdone themselves here. Must be incredible to see them play this song live. The best guitarship in the album and this means a lot when talking about Kalmah.

Tordah - 10/10 - Another favourite song of mine. Brilliant musicianship. The verse riffs seem made exclusively for this singer and are very addictive, the beautiful melodies always present, and a strong chorus. The riffs seem to have more power while having less speed. Another amazing solo.

Man With Mystery - 8/10 - Great opening riff. I love all these songs. Amazing how creative they must be to come up with a whole album of great songs that are unique in their own ways. This song contains everything the band in known for. The playing is obviously... yes you guessed it, immaculate.

Moon Of My Nights - 8.5/10 - Actually starts with a piano intro, could it be a slow love song? NEVER. That wall of sound quickly hits you again. Even though the verses are pretty soft, Kalmah makes sure that every song keeps transporting you to their beautiful world of heaviness and majestic melody. This song creates a truelly wonderful atmosphere and has to be another favourite of mine.

Suodeth - 8.5 - A bonus track. Why is this only a bonus track? I urge you to buy the "Swamsong" that contains this song, because it is brilliant.

Soooooooo. Why do all the songs have such high ratings, because you are a dumbass if you haven't gotten this cd yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Sweet Suodeth" 29 July 2006
By OzzyApu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The third release from the swamps would be this. Many became fans through the first and second releases, but a heap of them were convinced with the release of -Swampsong-. While really enjoying -Swamplord- and -They Will Return-, I knew it was time to hit this, so I gave it a go. Apparently child_of_the_jester_race explains the tracks pretty well, but much too biased. Nonetheless Kalmah is more than capable of churning epic...well, everything! However, after listening to the entire CD, this one, sadly to speak my mind, really didn't cut it as well as the first two Kalmah albums. I really don't mean to be harsh against Kalmah; I'm just saying that -Swampsong- really didn't do it well for me.

Track picks would be "Heroes To Us", "Burbot's Revenge", "Cloned Insanity", "The Third, The Magical", "Man With Mystery", and "Moon Of My Nights".

Although these are all good tracks to me, the real picks that I truly enjoyed were "Heroes To Us", "The Third, The Magical", and "Moon Of My Nights".

"Heroes..." - Charging opener about heroes lost to wars throughout mankind's history. The solo territory ranges from 2:25 to 4:00. The ending pounds the daylights out of everyone, but I still don't understand the scratching noise at the end.

"The Third..." - Slow song, starting with Pasi doing his trade. Very melodic and with a powerful riff. The chorus makes this one standout, being very orcish and deep, which is extremely good. The keyboard solo is too much to ask for, really well done.

"Moon..." - Probably my favorite song because it is the most unique one on the album. Has this driving rhythm with Pekka's deep yells during the verses. Pasi's playing makes this song so much more beautiful and shows how much effort and heart the members put into this song. Really enjoy the solo and the slow keyboard solo. The ending pounds you really well, but not without leaving a lavish mark.

There is also a bonus track called "Suodeth". My advice is to pick up the imported version that contains this track. It is absolutely stunning. They always have to make good tracks rare.

I really do listen to the entire Kalmah library, but this CD didn't make an impact as well as the first two. Musicianship wise, Kalmah wipes the floor with most bands and many within their own league, and that shows up on all the tracks here. I would recommend it highly anyways because any Kalmah album is a Kalmah album, featuring the best in wholesome, damn good Finnish Metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swampsong 11 May 2006
By Joy Francis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Somewhere, deep in the Finnish swamps, there's a well-hidden state of the art Metal breeding factory giving life to many fascinating Metal bands. If there's one country with a Metal scene grown out of hand, it's Finland, so many good bands, it's impossible to follow all of them.

KALMAH is one of the bands that have emerged from this mysterious swamp and their third swamp session brings us a nine song trip called "Swampsong". The band has found a suitable style with their first two albums, I don't understand why most people must have at least one C.O.B. remark when talking about KALMAH, they really can't be considered as C.O.B. clones because they've been doing this for more than ten years.

Taking their band name from a Karelian dialect that means "to the grave" in English language, the word "Kalmah" is a huge contradiction to the band's present existential state as they're far from heading for an early grave. Anyway, "Swampsong" is easily the tightest KALMAH record to date, some band's like to play as fast as possible, KALMAH do just that but don't overact, always keep it on a controlled and pleasurable level, songs like "Heroes To Us", "Cloned Insanity" and "Tordah" are two good examples of the band's strapped with a needle adrenaline rush.

"Swampsong" also offers a couple of KALMAH evergreens. "Burbot's Revenge" is an awesome song that starts with this "Jester Race" era riff before diving into several riff progressions like start stop timing and Black/Death Metal frenzies which later paves the way for some flamboyant twin guitar harmonies. Another standout song (the album's highlight in my opinion) is the mighty "The Third, The Magical", this encumbered track is loaded with all trademarks and the introduction of some clean vocals in the chorus, not even their beloved Swamp lord mascot could've carried the weight of this stunning mid tempo cracker!

The combination of KALMAH's "go-getting" attitude, production skills and their heavy, melodic keyboard filled sound will get them far, we're talking worldwide swamp fever (at least I hope so). So you see, you can't go wrong with this album if you like your Metal fast, technical, swampy and melodic. I'd like to thank the workers of Finnish Metal and Co. for once again bringing some high quality Extreme Metal to my home, keep up the good work!
