Format: Audio CD
Kamelot's current vocalist is Roy S. Khan, the former singer of the now defunct Conception. Conception was one of my favorite bands, so I was pretty torn when they broke up. Khan joined with Kamelot, and in my ignorance I became resentful of Khan's new band. I wanted Conception, darn it, not this Kamelot junk! But the sheer quality of Kamelot's latest release, along with the preceding album The Fourth Legacy, mitigates my ire. And if you knew how much I loved Conception, you'd understand that that's the highest form of praise I can give Karma.

In terms of songwriting, Karma is far beyond anything the band has done before. Even within the entire genre of symphonic melodic metal, Kamelot leaves their peers in their backwash. The Khan & Youngblood songwriting core commands a vast musical vocabulary, capable of interlocking rich symphonic elements and driving, aggressive metal. When that ability is added to their emotional sensibility and a remarkable ear for melody, you know Karma has to be great. The Fourth Legacy's best song was the exciting opener, the awe-inspiring title track and its symphonic prelude. "Forever," which begins Karma after keyboardist Miro's Braveheart-like composition, is likewise astonishing. Powerful orchestral strikes and choral exclamations underscore crisp, driving riffs, and a soaring chorus. Khan's voice is so powerful, especially his harmonies, and my body becomes racked with chills all throughout his shining delivery. "Wings of Despair" is tremendously uplifting, generating a spirit of heroism with the music and chorus. The incredible title track features a potent, spitfire guitar attack with elegant, crystalline pianos chords and glistening organ flourishes.

I bought Kamelot's Karma CD yesterday...and I've been listening to it virtually non-stop since. I'm nearly speechless.
Where do I begin to sing the praises of Kamelot?
Khan's voice is astounding. He's a combination of Geoff Tate and John Schlitt (a highly underrated rock singer, most recently of Petra), with a bit of Timo Kotipelto (Stratovarius) thrown in for good measure.
Guitarist Thomas Youngblood isn't a shredder the way Symphony X's Michael Romeo or Stratovarius' Timo Tolkki are, but he has a powerful, melodic style that I like very much nonetheless. Best of all, he's a true renaissance guitarist, equally at home on an electric, classical or acoustic guitar. Very few guitarists these days are that accomplished.
The songs on Karma are deep, creative, beautiful and sometimes complex without being overpowering the way Symphony X or Dream Theater can get.
I wouldn't call this prog metal. Symphonic metal is more like it. Or symphonic power metal. Whatever label you care to give it, this is extremely moving music.
It's hard to pick a favorite song, but I like the melody and brisk pace of "Across the Highlands."
Other favorites include "Forever," "Requiem for the Innocent," "Fall from Grace" and even "Ne Pleure Pas," the U.S. Bonus track, sung in French (with beautiful strings and classical guitar accompaniment).
Another surprise: This isn't a European power metal band. These guys are from Florida! Unbelievable. I had no freakin' clue that American bands were this good. Aside from Symphony X, I really didn't know any symphonic power prog/metal bands hailed from the States.
I'm going to waste no time ordering Kamelot's back catalog (I think they have five other CDs)...and keeping a watch on the concert circuit for a gig close to Michigan. This is truly a must-see band!

Is Kamelot the best power metal band on Earth? Well, I think they are at least the best European-style power metal band around. And Khan may be the best singer in all of metal.
Some things you should know about Kamelot:
1. Though three-fourths of the band members are American, Kamelot is definitely a European power metal band in style. In other words, their music has a lot more in common with Stratovarius and Rhapsody than Iced Earth and Jag Panzer.
2. Kamelot isn't cliched like many European power metal bands are. Sure, they sing about some of the same things (magic, dragons, honor, glory, knights, etc.). But even though vocalist Khan is from Europe, he commands the English language better than most European power metal lyricists. Kamelot avoids clumsy and cliched lyrics.
3. Though one reviewer here thinks vocalist Khan doesn't fit the music, Khan is still the best vocalist in all of power metal. Doesn't fit the music?!? Would you rather have a vocalist who tries to sing out of his range, mangles the English language and sounds like every other Euro power metal singer? No. Khan is a great singer (think Queensryche's Geoff Tate). He has range and is always in control of his voice.
4. Kamelot, though not really a progressive metal band, does have some prog touches here and there thanks to Khan. Khan's background as prog metal band Conception's lead singer and co-songwriter serve him well as a member of Kamelot. Khan's songwriting adds just enough difference to Kamelot's power metal base to make them stand out above the rest of the power metal norm.
5. Guitarist Thomas Youngblood. His playing style is awesome--equal parts thrash, speed and melody.
Karma, Kamelot's fifth studio album, may be the best album of 2001. It is every bit as good as Kamelot's previous disc, the Fourth Legacy. Every song is a highlight. Speed and power with just a hint of progressive is the Kamelot recipe.
