My HeadBangers welcome from Kerava, Finland, the one and only:



This song is about the last soul trapped in human flesh, realizing the time depleting.  Despair is complete, as complete as the inescapable end itself.  The distorted image reflecting from the darkness at the last moment invites the last of the lasts to step into the void.  This is not and ending, but the end.

I absolutely love this video.  Kalmo is a mixture of Doom/Black/Heavy Metal.  What follows is his story of his journey in finding his true self.  These are his own words:

Before the dawn of Kalmo loomed in the horizon of the damned sky, Mika was a bass player in a blues band, writing lyrics to the band’s songs.  About a decade ago an introit was sung and the seed of Kalmo was laid.  The first song was ready.  Several years passed with a flame steadily smoldering, scorching the darkened heart to vision a plan for more.

After finding a true name in Kalmo (cadaver in English), ominous visions of the inescapable doom have been falling into place in the darkness.  There is only one mind, one lost soul in the core of Kalmo.  The axes of doom guitars and bass are played and the dark cries are bawled by this man.  The beat of doom is conjured up with the black magic of state-of-the-art, technical drumslade witchery.

The Debut EP “Demoni” was unleashed May 10, 2019.  Demoni summarizes and concludes an episode in the Kalmo chronicles.  Some of the EP’s songs are from very early years and some have been written within two years before the release.  With this release, as a demonic rite of passage, Kalmo is hungry for more.  New dark verses are being written.  New evil psalms are being silently changed in the darkness.  The sinews of the sinister are gaining power.  The doom will be inevitable.

In addition to the EP Demoni, Kalmo has released some singles and music videos.  The videos are available at Kalmo’s YouTube channel.

Kalmo feasts on influences from true old school metal masters like Celtic Frost, Slayer, Death Breath, Black Sabbath, and Master.  To add some more to the list, which could almost be endless, at least the names of Triptykon, King Diamond, Gallhammer, Hellhammer, Vorum and Immortal must be spoken aloud.

At the moment the axes of doom spark the flames in the dark while the growling voice echoes from the walls of the deep dungeons.  A new chapter of the book is soon ready.  New songs are to be released soon.

The black crystal ball whispers of the tales of far future where there may be a slight possibility to complete the line up with fellow exhumated cadavers.  That vision is still covered in the dark mist and 6 feet of dirt.  Should that hallucination incarnate, there may also be possibility to see Kalmo live.

“Show Me Your Face”

Kalmo’s album “Gehinnom” was released on April 13, 2021.  It contains six psalms that prophecy the end of this all.  Each canticle is its own piece of a story, but they all share the same sinister dark tone.  With these cursed hymns, Kalmo brings you a step closer to the end.  The creature has gained its power.  Ready to spread its wings and rise to the skies.  To darken the light, to darken the stars.  Then end is near, nearer than ever.

My Thoughts:

My HeadBangers, I was fortunate when I was in Finland to meet this dark soul.  We shared a meal and a drink in Helsinki, well ok a drink or 3, as we talked about music and  our experiences.  I will say it was one thing about my time there that I always look back on fondly.  Kalmo is truly into his music and when talking with him you can see that dark calling in his eyes.  He is truly a great soul and dedicated to his music.  I look forward to more from him soon.  Check him out at his below links:
