Kamelot have held their 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 masterpiece of grand gestures, gritty melodies and haunting atmospheres. In addition, the album confidently and proudly features the band's new singer: with his debut Tommy Karevik from Sweden has proved that he suits Kamelot perfectly in every respect!
The LP and limited edition have one version of the art, while the standard version of Silverthorn has a different but equally exquisite version of the artwork. The standard version is presented as an Ecolbook. The limited edition contains the Ecolbook, a bonus CD with nearly 60 minutes of music, a 44 page book and an exclusive poster. The double LP version is a gatefold on colored blue marbeled vinyl. The digital version is available on iTunes.
Kamelot will return to Japan for a string of dates this May. The band has fond memories of playing in Japan and this tour will be another amazing chapter in their love for the fans in Japan.
“Japan is one of my favorite places to visit and play, the fans and culture are amazing!”, adds guitarist Thomas Youngblood.
