I'd gotten into Kalmah through the Black Waltz, and although i picked up their backlog over time, i'd never actually given any of their older albums a listen untill i picked up For the Revolution. FTR is pretty much a mix of Black Watlz and their older style, and having enjoyed it thoroughly i decided to have a blast at Swamplord, Swampsong and They Will Return. I've still got to give Swamplord and Swampsong more time, but i think They Will Return is the second best Kalmah album ever. And, owing to the high quality of their other releases, this is no small order.

Before we begin, lets sort out the whole Children of Bodom comparison. Kalmah sound nothing like COB. Yes, they both have a similar guitars/keyboards with extreme vocals set up. Yes, they both have elements of power metal, death and thrash. But thats where it ends. COB, aside from the vocals, are pretty much a technical power metal band whereas Kalmah are definitly an extreme (yet melodic) metal band at their core with hints of power metal, and infinitly darker, heavier and more aggressive then COB. You won't find much of the cheesy hard rock parts of COB in They Will Return. and while COB have classical influences in a cheesy Stratavarious/videogame-ish way, Kalmahs classical influences are much darker and more symphonic. You'll also find a lot of real melodic death influences from In Flames and Dark Tranquillity in Kalmah, which is absent from COB. All in all, i think they sound very different, both great bands, but Kalmah being the more serious, extreme band.

Phew, now thats over with, lets get to the music.

HASH(0xa374e030) out of 5 stars So Glorious That We Waited For Their Return... 24 April 2006
By OzzyApu - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Oh how I love Melodic Death Metal. From the masterpieces of old In Flames, to the epics from Dark Tranquillity, and on Sweden's sister coast of Finland...the tunes of Kalmah. How these five genius' can never create a bad album...hell...a bad song. The vibe and musical style of Kalmah should be heard by everyone, as it is beautiful in all aspects. The vocals are easy to recieve, the guitars are incredibly catchy, the bass is audible as can be, the drums lay down that feeling of unity, and the keyboard lays it's magic all over everything. I don't know if it is the water these guys drink or they have something that "happens" during birth that we don't know about, but the Finnish people somehow always spawn a better band than we do.

Although the roots of these guys dates back since In Flames and Dark Tranquillity (Long time ago!), these guys have been more on the recent scale, letting out album after album (or masterpiece after masterpiece) with something fresh and appealing. Last week I listened to their debut, and it was a striker. It then slowly grasped me and the songs one by one sunk in, until eventually everything was enjoyable. After hearing the entire -Swamplord- CD and making the decision to buy it, I figured there was no way that they could top it. "Not all bands carry mediocrity, OzzyApu". Oh how I wish all artists were like this.

How have they managed to top -Swamplord-? We all remember that one! Unbeatable riffs and solo combinations with catchiness and flare that would have Europe united under one flag. -They Will Return- features well put use of orchestras, keyboards, choirs, and I think I heard an organ on one song. "Human Fates" enters with the subtle bobbs from the guitars and the trebling bass, when Pekka and the guitars rush in with what they do best. This track features a really touching one minute keyboard solo grandioso. "Kill The Idealist" starts out pretty identically, but then turns to chugs and finally reaches a slew of ultra riffs, topped by a table-turning solo. "The Blind Leader" to me is the most catchiest guitar wise, as it really contains energetic guitars. I guess it is during the chorus where the guitars and the keyboards go hand in hand together. I will just have to say it is tranquil of all things. Packs a solo that would even make the great Dave Mustaine ponder.

"My Nation" starts off pretty well with this catchy hook you would expect throughout the song, but then relaxes onto keyboard control. At this very moment you are driven through the night sky effortlessly...untouchable and nothing to disturb you on such a journey. You are then taken out of it briefly by the apparent chorus. This one is strongly one of my favorites on this album, as it houses both soothing melodies with nicked solos, riffs, and the Melodic Death edge anyone would want to hear (Not Metalcore Style). Has a godly solo that would make Odon himself proud three coasts across.

I have not challenged myself this time in saying that the entire album will be listenable and that I will buy it. It, however, can only be a definite buy. The only way I can describe Kalmah's music is grand, majestic, and guitara solo-riffa ultima...

This album is 175% flawless. Seriously, if you are even remotely into metal then this album should be in your collection. From its technicality to its catchy as hell hooks. When I'm not listening to this album, I'm thinking about listening to it.

HASH(0x9962b96c) out of 5 stars Long Live Kalmah 10 Nov. 2005

Just buy all Kalmah albums, it's just totally worth it if ur into melodic death metal w/ keyboards. They are AMAZING!!! My fav is their 3rd album called SWAMPSONG!
By andres guzman - Published on

This is simply KALMAH's best release yet. out of the other two albums, this is the only one i always listen to.

the brothers KOKKO compliment eachother very well on guitar. i think on this album they went to a more melodic and more diverse writing style.

even though this is KALMAH's second release, it is way better thatn their first and last release. the song that shines out on this disc is KILL THE IDEALIST which has a very sick and melodic solo.

some people say they sound jus like COB, but if u have good musical ears, you can totally tell a big difference in their music.

the guitars fill this album with very good fast as hell riffs. the drums totally kick ass and goes very well with the music. the keyboards give KALMAH that melodic edge without making them sound whimpy and have a lot of beautiful passages. the vocals are decent, nothing too extraordinary but they get the job done.

if you want to get into this band, i suggest you get this album first, SWAMPLORD and SWAMPSONG are good but nothing like THEY WILL RETURN. this album is a must have.

im sure you will enjoy!!

This album can best described as being somewhat similar to Children of bodom, except taking all elements of their music, and making them more extreme and mixing it with old Dark Tranquillity. This album makes it dark, beautiful, fast, heavy, done with a greatly rounded band, with good, actually awesome, guitars, keyboards, drums, and bass.
The songs on this are absolutely amazing, with a good range, from slow, dark, and moody, too absolutely insane parts, blast beats, screaming, and all that good stuff. The songs never get never get boring, actually, the songs are gripping, you can't ignore them, they are the farthest thing from boring.
you can't pick a favorite song to on this album
