The story of Kalmah begun in 1991 when Pekka Kokko (v, g) and Petri Sankala founded Ancestor. After 2 demos Antti Kokko joined the band to handle the po- sition of lead guitarist. In 1998 after all in all 5 melodic thrash/speed/death metal demos and 5 different bass players it was time to clear the table. Ancenstor was bur- ied and refounded as Kalmah. The line- up was completed by keyboard player Pasi Hiltula.

Kalmah began to write songs for a pro- motional CD entitled Svieri Obraza. With this demo, they acquired a recording con- tract with Spinefarm Records and headed to Tico-Tico Studios to record their debut album, Swamplord.
