Kamelot
« on: Tue, 2006-11-14, 19:03:33 »
At first I listened to a song named Center of the Universe whish is a great track of Kamelot, I 've now bought the album named the Fourth Legacy which is a very nice albums, I think their music is also symphonic rock with a little metal so now and then. I think if You like Arena / Ayreon You'll like Kamelot as well. Maybe it's best to describe as a mixture between Blackmore's Night and Threshold, What do other people think of it?
Walk along the Waterfall, watching as the world turns red
Wonder where the river flows, and the blood on the River bed
Poison lies to close to us, Reach across the salt and Sand
Moving Deeper into the Land

Like Kamelot a lot. Only have three albums right now but its just a matter of time before the others will find its way to me.  8)

I think Roy Khan is an amazing singer and the guitars are also great. Quite bombastic but nevertheless progressive.  *horns*

I have the album 'The Black Halo' and indeed, it's a nice listening  *horns*.

Will have to listen to Black Halo at my friend's, but I remember I wasn't overly fond of the other albums. Basically cos I can't listen to PowerMetal stuff longer than a few minutes...  :-\

Gengis Khan?

I've listened to Black Halo (just like Peter and Teunis) and (just like Peter) I liked it, but wasn't really "touched" by it.
The voice is rather good actually, but I didn't like those growls and grunts. To bombastic? Maybe. But Power Metal isn't my cup of tea.

I think they're very good, and that they easily could have been better. Lose 80% of the double bass drum beats that go backwards at a hundred mph. Dead easy. And the albums would be much more enjoyable, and especially more varied. I don't want to come across as negative. It's just the one thing I think is the drawback. And I feel it, 'cause the rest of the material - and often the speed metal songs themselves - can be described as brilliant.

I have all the Kamelot releases and they are indead a great band *horns*

Best album is Karma - with the Elizabeth suite being (in my opinion) their best track (well 3 tracks actually!)

In fact I will have to put that on now (was listening to Callenish Circle but they've just finished)

My advice, and someone is going to lyrically kill me for that, forget Ghost Opera and really listen to Poetry for the Poisoned.

Marvellous album.

Sure, together with Epica Black Halo is there best but Poetry comes close. Very close.  *horns*

...get Ghost Opera

 *horns*

Not kill but skill  ;)

One of the many things that'r great about Kamelot (as with Nevermore) is that even their early albums are excellent. Skip the first, Eternity, but already the second, Dominion, is a fulfilling album. And everything from then on is  *horns*

Regarding Roy Kahn's departure from Kamelot, you can read about it over here.

So, health issues it is.

Sad though.
Didn't really liked Ghost Opera but Poetry was spot on again.  :(

Best of luck for whatever you do in the future Roy and fingers crossed that Kamelot go from strength to strength.

Ghost Opera is a fab album and woe betide anyone who says otherwise  ;)
