Kalmah – Seventh Swamphony

Seventh Swamphony may not hit as high and loud as The Black Waltz did seven years ago. It is however a very worthy contender that could come first for those Kalmah fans who just can't look up to The Black Waltz as the band's finest hour.

Chthonic – Bú-Tik

Taiwanese symphonic black metal band Chthonic are an interesting bunch. They've had a devoted cult following which can be attributed to their fairly unique sound and aesthetic (and perhaps the fact that they're one of the few well-known metal bands from Taiwan). Nearly two decades from their formation, they've recently gained worldwide fame after signing to Spinefarm Records in 2009. Bu-Tik is their third album on Spinefarm, and their seventh overall. The band have stated that this album is supposed to be a blend of their previous three albums. While it doesn't contain a lot of black metal influences unlike the band's older albums, it's still very interesting and a fine album.
