Finnish melodic death metal band Kalmah announced that they have recruited Veli-Matti Kananen of One Morning Left as the bands new keyboard player following the departure of Marco Sneck at the end of 2011. The band is also working on the follow up to the 2010 release "12 Gauge."

The following update was posted on the band's website:

After inspiring hunting season Kalmah has found new keyboard player. We welcome Swamplord Veli-Matti Kananen (One Morning Left) on board! Velski has already played session gigs with us in Russia and Switzerland so we knew his skills and most of all his state of mindlessness.

We have started to write material for next album and so far we have 4 songs on the way - fast and fucked. New video will be shot next summer with mosquitos and Finnish swamp soil. Song for the video has already been chosen. Studio sessions will take place at the end of this year.

Departed keyboardist Marco Sneck posted this statement announcing his departure in late 2011:

What an epic journey this has been, filled with great shows and albums! I would sincerely like to thank the fans around the world plus the people involved for the overwhelming support over the past years, you and these experiences will not be forgotten! As some paths fade away, existing ones keep on going and be sure, new ones will emerge so see you on the road! Last but definitely not the least I´d like to say to swamplords, keep up raising the bar of swampmetal to the level where it belongs!
