Kalmo to release Dominus "Meus" in October!


A stooped and malignant character looms in the shadows. His unwavering faith

finds solace in the enigmatic embrace of the unknown, beckoning forth dark forces

beyond mortal comprehension. A quiet prayer mumbled between his lips grows

into the demand for an apparition of the sacred evil deity to appear. The

character's resolve intensifies. He is more than ash and dust. He is more than

mortal. He is the crowning glory of his master’s creation. His distorted form quivers

beneath the tattered cloak. A haunting scream escaping his lips as he demands

immortality in exchange for his relinquished soul. He is ready for the kingdom to

come. He is wary of the dead.


Hailing from the haunting landscapes of Finland, Kalmo, the enigmatic force of

blackened doom metal, is set to unleash their third opus, "Dominus Meus" EP.

Embrace the abyss as Kalmo's tormented soul weaves nightmarish tales of

darkness and despair.


The EP unveils three new songs in a nightmarish cycle swirling deeper into the

abyss of development, as Kalmo's style and sound brood and fester, birthing a

new sinister layer of malevolence. The haunting melodies of the EP lay an

enigmatic course into the depths of darkness, unfurling veils of shadows and

obscure secrets. Dominus Meus beckons from the blackness of the abyss,

forsaking the familiar Finnish lyrics for unholy incantations hissed in the English

tongue, entwining listeners in a web of sinister enchantment.


All songs, born from Kalmo's tormented soul, were recorded in the desolate

confines of Kalmo's haunted home studio. Roland Rodas at Cavern of Echoes

(https://www.cavernofechoes.com/), the enigmatic master of sound engineering,

adeptly weaves dark incantations through meticulous mixing and mastering,

conjuring the thick, suffocating shroud of darkness that seeps from each haunting

melody. The artist known only as Mosaeye [IG: mosaeye] has crafted the chilling

cover art, where shadows twist and nightmares materialize, enveloping the EP in

an unsettling aura of mystery. In addition, Kalmo seeks to raise a sinister skull,

veiled in an air of arcane rites, as a token of profound gratitude, and pay homage

to the dear friends within Kalmo's Inner Circle, as well as the enigmatic mentors

Pekka Olkkonen, Aliki Katriou, and Mari Aro, for their invaluable guidance and

unwavering support throughout the unholy journey of birthing this haunting EP

amidst the shadows.
