Päästä Irti

Päästä Irti
(self-released - 2007)

The Finnish band Kamala was founded back in 2005 and is an all-girl band which plays heavy metal with a dirty touch. Päästä Irti is their 2nd demo and offers 3 tracks. They kick off with the title track Päästä Irti. With a heavy punch these girls attack you! Singer and guitarist Karita Kivioja has a powerful, slightly raspy voice which fits great to their dirty rock / metal. They somehow let me think of another female trio... Rock Goddess. Kamala also have a heavy, dirty sound, but as they are out to conquer the metal world more then 2 decades later their sound is different - more modern. For Pakko they speed up and get thrashy. But they not just speed off, they vary in speed and Karita adds some aggressive riffs and words. The last tune is Merkattu, a mid-paced heavy rocker where Miss Kivioja shows a bit more emotion.
The girls play heavy metal - with a thrashy edge - with attitude - dirty and wild. The production is good, powerful and just raw enough to support their sound. Hope to hear more of these girls!
