about

Kalamahara claim more for their sound than just black and white. The power trio from Leipzig and Hamburg contrasts versatile, progressive harmonies with rock hard and dauntless riff broadsides. The resulting mixture of kraut, psychedelic and stoner sounds can hardly be reconciled but the band doesn't care about dusty style cliches anyway. While the three experienced musicians and singers partly play with fragile lyrics, they deliver mighty pounds of riff broadsides at the same time, alternating with complex melodies and intricate rhythms never forgetting not to take themselves too seriously at the right moments.

Mixed and recorded by Charlie Paschen (i.a. Rotor, Coogans Bluff, Wucan) at the Off The Road Studios in Leipzig, Kalamahara deliver with "Greener Fields" their most mature album yet. Mastered by Willi Dammeier (i.a. Colour Haze) it places great importance on more details, more space, more time, and invites you to a journey through wide sound landscapes always ahead of common standards. In spite of the band members living in different cities and the departure of a second guitarist, shows with bands like Colour Haze, Radio Moscow, The Flying Eyes, Coogans Bluff and Rotor helped Kalamahara to grow deeper into their own sound in the recent years resulting in "Greener Fields" being completely recorded live.

The unconditional pursuit to produce a transparent and unpretentious sound gives the songs a tangible tension, revealing sensitivity without easing pressure. Diversified instrumentation and the courage to shift down a gear once in a while, enrich the dynamic and multifaceted nature of the album. The eight unique songs are proof that along with a pronounced joy of playfulness and musical audaciousness, the rare conviction that prestige, complacence and often copied standards should have no place in modern rock sound.

Track Name: Impressure
have a look at these people and you might be impressed
they're just walkin' screens of exceptional art
so they try to wear their identity on their skin
but remember that you can't tattoo your heart

so you're in the middle of a place that used to be hip
and you think you got the old spirit absorbed
and everything is gettin merged to a big bunch of fancy shit
and guess what - I'm totally bored
Track Name: Radiator
rawling - by the mires of her ancient moan
chasing - what they've kept away from her so long
melting - the viral you and me
grinding - for radiating dreams

tortured - hear her screaming, through the night it chimes
freezing - note her grieving to be exiled for all times
melting - the viral you and me
grinding - for radiating dreams

trapped outside your kind - the radiator - difference in your mind
try to get inside - the radiator - all of us are blind
the ignorance inside won't mediate her, leave it all behind
trapped outside your kind - the radiator - buried by the grind
Track Name: Waters of Forgetfulness
see, the day is cheap with light, the sand of time turns cold
the sun turns off its latest sight, may the warmth stay bold

soon your face turns fever-bright, your breath could cut your throat
when a star appears you might get what you're waitin' for

the nights now resting on her way, your fire, her delight
the world forgot about the day, but you keep it in your mind

teasing and tearing the winds by your side, cheering cause he's not alone
crashing and crumbling, you're covered with stones, deeper and deeper you slide
Track Name: Reflections, Pt. 1
reflections on the sea, turn my eyes again on me
formations in the sky, soothing shadows on my eye
reflections on the day, irritated by the waves
reactions in my mind, opposing shore gets out of sight
the muddy ground sticks on my shoes, ease them up, oh let them loose
and yet the sun invades my brain, and still the morning cold remains

and I flew over you - and I hold my hand above your head

and as I walk this heavy ground, I look up and up in the clouds I see
what sounds so odd to me, what sets me free, what turns on me
and I wont remember what you said, take a faster move instead
oh wont you please, look up on me?
Track Name: Nuszknacker
STEIN - MACHT - NUSS - KAPUTT - DIE - SAU
Track Name: Phoneiric
as lightning burns the trip return, the source of all behind the wall
sonic thunder rolls the sky, as notions thrive the ravens fly

ease up my oh-so-heavy burden, please note im lazy not at all
sonic thunder rolls again, as notions thrive the ravens fly

I ride the sunny fields of Eden in the sky
I taste the meltin' glue emotion, so am I
I seek the blooming lands so badly in my mind
Track Name: Greener Fields
another wound cant just save me now, I focus on the dread somehow
another word wouldn't change it now, the bloomin' place I can see it
I should have known what its all about, the ragged voice in space so loud
the howlin' ends and first I stop, to see if it might have passed
yeah to see if it might have passed

take the worries out of my head - i never ever seem to understand
help the certainty save to land - after all the years we didn't ever met

call back the powers of self defence, I send them out in selfish lands
try take the best of the circumstance, of being left behind
I should have known what its all about, the ragged voice in space so loud
the howlin' ends and first I stop, to see if it might have passed
yeah to see if it might have passed

take the worries out of my head - I never ever seem to understand
help the certainty save to land - after all the years we didn't ever met
