Editorial Reviews

KAMELOT have held their very own, very special position in the world of rock and heavy music: their elaborate melodic metal has always opened itself in a remarkably clever way to like-minded styles, integrating progressive elements as well as cross-references to doom/gothic metal and classical music, which have allowed their songs to define their own genre. Two of their most successful releases in particular, namely the albums KARMA (2001) and THE BLACK HALO (2005), are prime examples of Kamelot s multi-layered approach, intensity and outstanding musicality. Their latest offering, SILVERTHORN, sees the band raise this demanding standard even higher, because SILVERTHORN is a real masterpiece of grand gestures, gritty melodies and haunting atmospheres. In addition, the album confidently and proudly focuses on the band s new singer: with his debut, new addition Tommy Karevik from Sweden has proved that he suits Kamelot perfectly in every respect. SILVERTHORN is one of the best Kamelot albums ever, not only thanks to their Swedish vocalist s brilliant performance, but also thanks to the artistic development of all parties involved. For an ambitious band like us, the only target can be to get better with every album and go for new horizons, comments main composer Thomas Youngblood, adding: Youngblood is referring to producer Sascha Paeth (Avantasia, Edguy, Rhapsody), who highlights Tommy Karevik s voice perfectly while flawlessly capturing the band s sonic cosmos. The close compositional collaboration between Youngblood and keyboardist Oliver Palotai, which spawned the majority of new material, has contributed to an album which sees one important element mesh with the other, from the first note of the intro, 'Manus Dei', to the last song, 'Continuum'. In between, Kamelot deliver an extravaganza of exciting ideas, mix prog and power metal on the driving 'Sacrimony (Angel Of Afterlife)' and the subsequent 'Ashes To Ashes', deliver anthemnic choruses on 'Torn' and 'Falling Like The Fahrenheit' and rely on the perfect interplay between Karevik and Palotai on the ballad 'Song For Jolee'. The band was supported at the studio by guest musicians Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Eklipse, Alissa White-Gluz (The Agonist) and Amanda Somerville, among others. This Limited Edition box set comes complete with the album in Ecolbook CD format, a full-length bonus CD, an extra 44page book and a poster!!

Listen and enjoy Kamelot fans, you're in for a great album.
Mandy
He has his own sound, but he does his best Khan impersonation and pulls it off well, and I never once thought that Khan could have done a better job with the song.
Norien
It's got driving metal guitars, prog moments galore that add spice, and a good mix of symphonic orchestration and church choir vocals with the guitar work.

In my opinion, Kamelot has never released a truly bad album, just less awesome ones. Poetry for the Poisoned was one of those less than fantastic albums, so I am really glad that they didn't release a worse album. Instead, they released one that is on-par with my favorite albums by them (Epica and The Black Halo). I can't help but notice that when they theme their album releases off a story they come up with their best albums.

It's not just the story that flows from one song to the next, though, as the music slides across the tracks with ease and beauty. The music is fantastic, and the musical theme that they chose (a small melody that actually evolves into the chorus of the title song) is highly adaptive. Every single song that had that little melody in it used it in a different way, which I personally find awesome. The band also managed to craft another album without a single filler or boring track. I don't know how they do it, but I would open iTunes and listen to any of the songs on this album and be satisfied.

Now, to touch on the new lead singer. I know that any fan of Kamelot is sad that Roy Khan (their previous, god-like lead singer) left the band. However, I can gladly report that their new singer, Tommy Karevik (from the also great band, Seventh Wonder), fills Khan's absence perfectly. He has his own sound, but he does his best Khan impersonation and pulls it off well, and I never once thought that Khan could have done a better job with the song.

To end, I just want to have a brief summary of this album. It opens up and ends with absolutely gorgeous instrumental tracks and everything in between is catchy enough to find yourself singing along with it afterwards. If you were on the edge of buying this but were having doubts, take my word for it and purchase this album. You will definitely not regret it.

Khan is one of my favorite singers of all time! When he left, I thought Kamelot was done for good. As a fan, I had been disappointed by the direction the band had taken in the last few albums. They seemed to have lost their way after the smashing success that was Black Halo. Instead of following that footprint, Ghost Opera came out, and though I actually like Ghost Opera, the band was taking on a darker tone and just seemed less happy. Poetry totally alienated me... couldn't even find a semblance of Kamelot in it... And then this was all compounded by Khan leaving.

Enter Silverthorn...
One of the best metal albums of the year!! Back to that traditional Kamelot sound! Some of the songs are reminiscent of the Karma era, I also hear some Epica, and definitely Black Halo. I was so skeptical of Tommy filling in these impossibly big shoes, but I have to say that seeing Kamelot live erased all my doubts. Tommy is not only an amazing singer but he is a complete showman. He's awesome at engaging the audience, and his voice is flawless! We only got to hear Sacrimony live, and though I loved it, I don't even think it's the best song on the album.

As far as the songs go, I can say that it is an incredibly solid album from beginning to end. The run from Sacrimony to Silverthorn is amazing! Tommy in general sings higher than Khan (meaning stays on the higher register) for most of the songs. In some songs, I can totally picture Khan singing in his lower voice, but I can't say it detracts from the album. Tommy does his best at singing with some of Khan's modulations but he still manages to keep his own sound. It's hard to explain but Kamelot sounds like Kamelot, and Tommy sounds like Khan, but it doesn't come off as an imitation.

Let me just say, I discovered Seventh Wonder last year, and was completely blown away by Tommy's vocals. They instantly became a favorite band of mine, and I wondered how I haven't heard of Tommy before. I thought it was only a matter of time before he gets discovered. I've been listening to Kamelot since 2002, and have always loved Khan, but just like everyone else, I noticed a decline in quality with Poetry for the Poisoned. Especially in Khan's vocals. There are some songs on that CD that are almost intolerable, such as The Zodiac. Black Halo was, in my opinion, Kamelot's absolute best album. So when I heard Tommy was replacing Khan for good, I was saddened by Khan's departure, yet extremely excited to hear new material with Tommy. After listening to the album multiple times already, I can say that it truly is amazing. There's this aura/vibe to the band that is unmistakable and captivating. Tommy fits so well into the band, it's scary, and I can't help but feel incredibly happy for him, as he has real talent and was discovered by a successful band that tours the world. Despite Kamelot following a somewhat consistent song structure as they always do, the songwriting and music just works on all levels. People have mentioned that there are instances where Tommy sounds identical to Khan, and I can hear the resemblance at times, but after listening to so much Seventh Wonder, I can easily pick up on his distinct vocals.

This was the perfect addition to an aging Kamelot, (Remember, Kamelot has been playing for 21 years now) and adding a powerful young singer like Tommy to the mix has already brought a fresh element to the band. I absolutely look forward to future albums, and I feel he will meld with the band with ease. It won't be long until we start hearing his full vocal potential.

Will you guys restock the limited edition? or is it gone for good?
I preordered it and got a delay (action needed) email saying they don't know if they can get it. So not even that guarantees things it seems.
