Kalmo is a Finnish doom metal band. The band is one man's project to create darkest doom metal you can find.

The song lyrics are written in Finnish. They get their inspiration from the world around us, the seen and unseen world.

Guitar tracks, vocals and bass track I play myself. The drums are something I am still looking for a solution. Currently I use Redrum (murdeR) to create drum tracks. Despite of the fact using the machine for the drums, drum tracks are composed beat by beat. No ready made drum loops are used.

The longer term aim for Kalmo is to produce an EP containing four to six darkest and doomiest songs. Like the end for us all the EP will come - eventually.

Together with the music, Kalmo wants to offer you doomed ones clothing with doom designs to express your dark souls. Check out the store for some cool t-shirts.

Currently Kalmo is working on a video for the song Elävä vainaa. The video material is available and the cutting process has proceeded the first stage. I hope video would be ready for release by mid or end of October 2017.

Kalmo bows to Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Triptykon, Vorum, Candlemass, Slayer, Death Breath and Immortal.
