The Skinny: Celebrate your weekend with a hearty dose of Seventh Swamphony, the impending new full-length from Finnish death metal instigators, Kalmah, currently streaming in its entirety via SoundCloud. Seventh Swamphony will be released in North America via Spinefarm Records digitally on June 18, 2013 and on CD June 25, 2013.

Recorded at Tico-Tico Studios in Kemi, Finland, the follow-up to 2010’s critically acclaimed 12 Gauge release was mixed and mastered at Sweden’s Fascination Street Studios by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Soilwork, Paradise Lost, et al) and showcases the Oulu outfit’s signature brand of frantic, yet melodic death metal tempered here by a new-found epic mournfulness.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
