Biography

While the Kamelot from Tampa is the most prominent band of this name, there are more bands using it in the world:

1) Kamelot is a power metal band from Tampa, Florida that incorporates progressive and symphonic elements into their music. The band was founded by guitarist Thomas Youngblood and drummer Richard Warner in 1991.

In 1994 the band signed a deal with Noise Records; the release of their debut album Eternity followed in 1995. The next album, Dominion, was released in 1997.

Later that year, two of the band’s members were replaced; drummer and founder Richard Warner and lead vocalist Mark Vanderbilt. Respectively, their replacements were Casey Grillo and Roy Khan (Roy Sætre «Khan» Khantatat from Elverum in Norway - formerly of Conception). With the two new members, Kamelot released their third studio album, Siege Perilous. The new line-up undertook an extensive tour through Europe during the fall of the same year only to return to the Gate Studio in Wolfsburg twelve months later to produce the fourth studio effort The Fourth Legacy.

The summer of 2000 brought the “New Allegiance Tour” through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Greece and Spain during which the recordings for Kamelot’s first live album The Expedition were made. Only a few months later the band presented their fifth album entitled Karma, to the greatest critical success yet. Their sixth album, Epica was released in 2003.

    Very fun read, great info on all the songs too, definitely getting more hyped for this every day. I liked Silverthorn a decent amount, probably a similar amount to PFTP/GO but I'm definitely glad to hear this is a step up.

    Citizen Zero sounds a bit like March of Mephisto/Necropolis/Veritas from the sample.

    @shodan21 You do. @Waldschrein, I agree with you for the most part. Liar is definitely my pick, it represents everything I want to hear from Kamelot at this point of their career. Next, I'd go for My Therapy or Insomnia as both are almost equally good to me. Still, Therapy might have a more natural flow to it. So I'd go for either one of those or Citizen Zero, I enjoy this odd counterpoint. Love what the band did with the choirs and the dystopic sound overall. Every time I go through it, I can't help but envision a dark, cinematic imagery. Not to mention the lyrics. 'I come to state your abdicaaaatiooon...'
