    There is no salvation, no place to escape. The demons are here. Plans of doom take shape....also in CD format! \m/
    With devilish artwork and a booklet. Kalmo makes its doom in Finnish: for those doomed ones not so familiar with this brutal language, the CD version contains a booklet with lyrics in both Finnish and English.

    “KALMO’s music is not for everybody and everyday. It is raw and inimitable. There are layers which need slowly to be peeled off in darkness, in order to get to the…more darkness. The experimental nature of KALMO’s rotting doom from the dungeons requires desperation, pain and demons evoked, around slowly fading candles. 8.5/10”
    -- Count Vlad, www.blessedaltarzine.com/2019/04/25/kalmo-demoni/

    "Kalmo’s voice is very gutteral and reminds you of some kind of creature
    that arises from the depths of the underworld, where all is not friendly,
    but dark and evil.Whatever Kalmo is spawned from the music is good and dark.I think you will appreciate the mystery behind this dark magic music."
    -- Sandy, 10degreesofmetal.com/2019/05/03/week-29-kalmo-doom/

    "Harsh, insane and dark: the debut EP from Finnish solo project Kalmo is not easy listening. 7,5/10."
    -- Mike, doom-metal.com/reviews.php?album=3467

    "Kalmon ilmaisu on parhaimmillaan synkkää, raakaa sekä sopivan rupista. Hienostelua tai kirkkaan puhtoista soundimaailmaa on turha odottaa, sillä nyt mennään pimeyttä kohti jalat edellä. 2,5/5"
    -- Miika, metalliluola.fi/kalmo-demoni-ep-2019/

    "Outo, karkea ja lumoava ovat kaikki sanoja joita siitä voisi käyttää, ja sikäli Demoni on yhdenmiehenyhtyeiden viimeisten muutaman vuoden tuotosten joukossa kärkipäässä.Suositellaan hyvin vähäisin varauksin doomin karumman ääripään ystäville." 3,5 -- Ville, www.impe.fi/demos/1/3491

    "On a superficial level, Demoni is rude, simplistic and even uninteresting, as most one-man metal bands tend to be. But there is something wicked in the way it enthralls the mind and invites you back for more. And yes, that is the characteristic it shares with Monotheist: it doesn't have any identifiable special things or hooks to make it remarkable in any traditional sense, nor does it seem extreme at first. But as a whole it turns out to be a freakish but working contraption built of ugly and crude parts, however, and while it seems like a lumbering golem of bones and rotting flesh, it works like a charm once it reveals its workings to anyone it manages to lure to return to it. There is something infective in the way the parts of the unholy machine work. 75%"
    -- Napero, www.metal-archives.com/reviews/Kalmo/Demoni/778424/Napero/25436

    "Die Musik von KALMO ist vielschichtig und definitiv keine Alltagsmusik den sich jedermann/frau antun wird. Fakt ist, mit dieser Facette haben die Jungs einen schier unnachahmlichen Sound geschaffen, den sich eine breite Facette an Doom und Black Metal Fans zu Gemüte führen sollte. Mit der Vielschichtigkeit der dunklen und derb-morbiden Soundarrangierung ist dies unveränderlich deren Baustelle. 3/5" -- www.metalunderground.at/cd-berichte/kalmo-demoni

Elävä vainaa is brimming with the smell of smoke and eternal fire. The character of the endless road to damnation is further revealed in the psalms of this song. The song was originally released as a demo version with a music video.


Lyrics in English further below

Viimeisen maljan juotu kitkerä viini
Ikuisessa ajassa kohtalo iäti kiinni
Loputon tuli sen ikuinen renki
Valheella saatu kaupattu henki

Haistan savun
Mukana tuulen
Helvetin tulen
Palavan ikuisuuden

Harhainen askel tuskien tiellä
Kadotukseen ikuiseen käydään siellä
Taakka annettu
Sieluani painaa
Elävä vainaa

Viimeinen tuomio
osta ei kuolokaan
voi sielua armahtaa
Tuomio annettu
Taakka kannettu
Sieluani painaa
Elävä vainaa

Haistan savun
Mukana tuulen
Helvetin tulen
Palavan ikuisuuden

Elävä vainaa


The last chalise
of bitter wine
Fate chained to
eternal time

Endless fire
its eternal servant
Gained by betrayal
the sold soul

I smell the smoke
In the wind
Flames of Hell
burning for ever

Staggering steps
on the road of torment
Leading to
damnation eternal
Burden given
haunts my soul

Living cadaver

The last Judgement
from which not even death
cannot redeem
The doom sealed
The burden given
Haunts my soul

Living cadaver

I smell the smoke
In the wind
Flames of Hell
burning for ever

Living cadaver


from Demoni, released May 10, 2019
