      Kalmah's third album (2003).

      Seeming like a rushed release from a band with its mind elsewhere (namely in the band Eternal Tears of Sorrow), Kalmah's third release doesn't even have the originality to come up with a title that isn't stolen from their first album. This is more or less the same Children of Bodom esque melodic death metal that fans will be familiar with, only much less energetic than 'They Will Return,' very generic, and with an annoying tendency to rely on atmospheric sections that exude little atmosphere.

      Songs such as the opener 'Heroes to Us' go off on more tangents than the band's previous works, and there's an uncomfortable contrast between fierce, fast-paced songs like 'Bird of Ill Omen' and tedious, slower songs like 'The Third, the Magical' that entirely lack the fun of the previous album. The slow finale 'Moon of My Nights' is particularly offensive to my ears for essentially being light gothic metal with growled vocals, and this entire album feels like a regrettable misstep.

      1. Heroes to Us
      2. Burbot's Revenge
      3. Cloned Insanity
      4. The Third, the Magical
      5. Bird of Ill Omen
      6. Doubtful About It All
      7. Tordah
      8. Man With Mystery
      9. Moon of My Nights
