    One For Sorrow (Lilac Vinyl)

    Pressed On 2x 180-Gram Lilac Colored Vinyl + CD


    Housed In A Gatefold Jacket


    Finland's epic and gloomy melodic deathers INSOMNIUM proudly present a high-class reissue of 2011's "One For Sorrow"! "One For Sorrow" kicked off the band's ongoing and constantly increasing success mounting in #1 in the Finnish charts and #19 in Germany for "Winter's Gate" (2016). As Century Media Records celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2018, bringing back a more recent milestone in the label's history is mandatory considering the class of "One For Sorrow" and the fact, the original pressing is fairly rare. This reissue also includes the tracks 'Weather The Storm' (feat. Mikael Stanne / Dark Tranquillity) and 'Beyond The Horizon', which only had been available digitally before. "One For Sorrow" is available as Gatefold 2LP+CD and has been mastered for vinyl to ensure the best possible listening quality.

    Seventh Swamphony

    Seventh Swamphony is the seventh studio album by the Finnish melodic death metal band Kalmah and is their first album with new keyboardist Veli-Matti Kananen. The album was recorded at Tico-Tico Studios in Kemi, Finland, and was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren.


    Few would deny that in the late 1990s and very early 2000s, Finnish death metal began shifting it's direction across the board. Although Amorphis themselves never lost any stride, the whole 'depression metal' thing just kinda faded away, to be replaced by something far more aggressive and energetic. Bands such as Children of Bodom, Norther, and Insomnium broke through with a sound that although was still firmly rooted in the brutality of death metal, were not too shy to throw in the occasional thrash and black metal influence to in turn create something new and exciting. With the exception of perhaps the aforementioned Insomnium, Kalmah had always been perhaps the most flat-out extreme and agro, and has steadily upped the ante with every succeeding release.


    Right from the get-go, this disc opens up with a synth-hit-infused blasting skank-beat that flows easily into the pit-worthy yet SUPER-catchy chorus. This kind of sets the tone for this whole disc, and you get eight incredibly intense-yet-focus fistpumping/headbanging perfect examples of memorably melodic death metal that oozes every ounce of brutality that it can out of the riffage contained herein. A theme that is echoed in practically every song they've ever done is their effortless use of solemn, slightly-folksy lead guitar melodies on top of the high-energy thrashy rhythms underneath. Songs such as Deadfall and Wolves On The Throne are amazing and true-to-form for this band; heavy on melody and light on respite. The former song also features a glimpse of the ivory-tickling prowess of new keyboardist Veli-Matti Kananen, who in both his melody lines and also in his soloing has an almost youthful whimsy as he jams up and down the board. Once you notice it for the first time, you tend to notice that this may be one of the most keyboard-heavy albums the band has ever done, but that is because this may be the first time since 2002 that the band's keyboardist has had anything meaningful to add to the table in terms of songwriting. Maybe that's a bit drastic, but that's sure what it sounds like here, and that isn't to say that the omnipresent keys drown out the massive wall of guitar and bass. Antti Kokko is still one of underground metal's unknown guitar heroes with how deftly he weaves his melody lines through these tracks, and never mind how ridiculous his solos are. Need a point of reference? He's a straight-faced, serious, no-B.S. version of Alexi Laiho. And his brother Pekka Kokko's voice has never sounded better either, easily crossing from the higher-pitched, black metal-version of Mille Petrozza he always used to do on the older records with the flat-out demonic growl he's wielded since the masterful The Black Waltz album. He even manages to weave in a bit of clean singing for the first time that I can remember hearing on a Kalmah record, and speaking of which...


    ...remember how in the first paragraph we kind of stated that the melancholic Finnish death metal of yesteryear has been kind of hard to find as of late? Well, Kalmah decided to dish out their own version in fourth track Hollo. After listening to it maybe 10 times now, I've realized that I just need to stop the internal dialogue on whether or not it's a good direction for the band and instead just focus on how amazing the song itself is. For most of the track it really is one of the best pieces of old school Amorphis-worship that I've ever heard, before doing a Viking metal shift about halfway through, complete with calling horns and battle-ready gang vocals. Apart from this tune, the most that Kalmah otherwise deviates from what they know works is the almost-punky opening of Windlake Tale.


    A lot of people unfairly write this band off as Bodom clones, and it's really unfortunate when they put out such amazingly dark and heavy records like this that really set them apart. If anything, I feel that this record will continue to appease Kalmah's core fanbase who've stuck it out since the beginning, but with it's perfect mixjob (except for some questionable leveling of the opening melody of Wolves on the Throne) where everything comes through crisp and clear (or as crisp and clear as a band as loud and agro as this likes to get), it can be an easy-to-get-into album for those still uninitiated.

    Beyond (Awaiting Repress)

    On "Beyond" the Finnish six-piece appear without limitations to their forward-thinking metal that is aggressive and heavy while quoting feels from prog rock to even AOR. This is why OMNIUM GATHERUM are speaking of themselves of adult oriented death metal in its most epic and purest form. Listening to "Beyond", the sixth album of the Scandinavians, you will be able to relate to this classification in no time.


    On "Beyond" the Finns continue from where the band's LIFEFORCE RECORDS debut "New World Shadows" (2011) left, but there are also stylistic echoes from "The Redshift" (2008/Candlelight) as well as new interesting ideas that have been brought to the integrated perception of atmospheric death metal OMNIUM GATHERUM are expanding. "Beyond" marks the first recording for guitarist Joonas Koto (To/Die/For, Malpractice) and bass player Erkki Silvennoinen (Amoral, De Lirium's Order) who complete the new six-piece line-up of the band. Formed in 1996, OMNIUM GATHERUM released albums on Nuclear Blast, Candlelight, Rage Of Achilles and LIFEFORCE RECORDS and gathered a massive dose of praising feedback among the metal communities and medias. The band previously toured Europe alongside Dark Tranquillity, Swallow The Sun, Nile, Grave, Entombed, Caliban, Insomnium etc. Their last album "New World Shadows" ranked at #5 in the Finnish album charts, the highest chart entry for the band so far!

    The Redshift

    Omnium Gatherum's fourth album 'The Redshift' was nailed and furled at Sound Supreme and SouthEastSounds Studios during the spring days of 2008 and it was mixed and mastered at Unisound Studio in Sweden by the legendary metal-mastermind Dan Swanö, who commented the album with his nice words: 'I hate bands like Omnium Gatherum, they are so good it pisses me off!!! Their fine blend of melody and aggression is so good I actually thought about stealing the record and releasing it as my own :) You won´t find a better album in years.' Their 2008 album The Redshift had generally positive reviews, inked band to do long European tours with Nile/Grave in 2008 and Swallow The Sun/Insomnium in 2009.
