If we’re being completely honest, and I see no reason why we shouldn’t be, I was a little underwhelmed by Kalmah’s last album, For the Revolution. It just didn’t have that certain oomph that made The Black Waltz and Swampsong so goddamn good.
But I’m willing to give Kalmah another chance. I mean, they wrote the best song ever about fish vengeance, so they deserve a pass on this one, right?
So. The band has announced a new album, 12 Gauge, to be released on March 3 via Spinefarm. There’s no cover art or new streaming music yet, which seems kinda odd given that we’re just two months out from the album’s release, but maybe that just speaks to how quickly bands can turn around a record in the digital age. I can’t help but be excited for this one.
