Kamelot is one of metal’s most unique, influential and prestigious acts to come along in decades. Blending symphonic metal, prog, power and world music, Kamelotstands alone creating a something theatrical, dark and beautiful.
Kamelot have long been among the most prestigious and innovative acts in the history of the rock and metal genre. Their blend of melodic metal, progressive influences and doom/gothic metal references has ensured that albums such as The Fourth Legacy (1999), Karma (2001) and The Black Halo (2005) turned into absolute masterpieces. Their 2015 release Haven not only established a new generation of fans for the band, but also took the group to more countries and cities than ever. Thanks to lots of sold-out shows, most successful tour of their career to date.
In late 2016 the band entered the studio to begin recording their follow-up to the highly acclaimed chart topping album Haven. Haven debut #1 on the Billboard Music charts and was the highest overall charting release for the band in nearly all countries. The new album titled THE SHADOW THEORY will make Kamelot history as it will be released worldwide (excl. Asia) on Napalm Records/Universal and Napalm Records/ADA/Warner as an exclusive licensing deal through the band's KAMELOT MUSIC LLC and will showcase Kamelot at yet another level, both in terms of production and visual artistry.
It's time to step into the dystopic and psychological world of The Shadow Theory. The new album features all the signature elements of Kamelot but the band steps out to add new and industrial elements along with bringing some amazing emotions that harken to the band's earlier days. Kamelot’s artsy music is chock full of symbolism relating to how the band feels about the world and the current state of civilization.
“The Shadow Theory album is a psychological journey through the complexity of the Human Mind. We are subjected to stimuli constantly through media, technology, social experiments and AI. Can we still be social creatures in the near future? The Shadow Theory is an album that is mixing many worlds, giving the listener an Escape within our own realities. This album was written and recorded over the entire year and we are really proud of the song elements and diversity on The Shadow Theory”, adds guitarist Thomas Youngblood.
Produced by acclaimed music producer Sascha Paeth and mastered by Jacob Hansen, The Shadow Theory is a huge and massive album that is sure to please critics and fans alike. Additional guests include Lauren Hart (Once Human), Jennifer Haben (Beyond The Black) and Oliver Hartmann (Avantasia). The amazing and cover and artwork was created by Stefan Heilemann.
Following the release of The Shadow Theory, Kamelot will embarque on a massive World Tour, starting with North America in April/May 2018 followed by European shows in the Summer 2018 and with The Shadow Theory European Tour in September/October 2018 the band will return to Europe for their biggest headliner tour to date.
No doubt about it: 2018 will turn into yet another Kamelot year!
Born in 1996, the band, which included vocalist Tony Kakko, guitarist Jani Liimatainen, drummer Tommy Portimo, keyboardist Mikko Harkin, and bassist Janne Kivilahti, recorded a handful of demos before releasing their first single, "UnOpened," on Spinefarm Records in July of 1999. Sonata Arctica's full-length debut, Ecliptica, was released in 2000 by Spinefarm and Century Media Records. Following a successful tour with Rhapsody and Stratovarius, the group put out a six-song EP, Successor, which featured live tracks, a pair of covers, and other previously unreleased material. Sonata Arctica were rewarded with various awards and honors around this time: Hard N' Heavy magazine voted them Newcomer of the Year, as did Emma, the Finnish Music Awards. Kivilahti quit the band in late 2000 and was replaced by Marko Paasikoski before work began on the band's second full-length album. With producer Ahti Kortelainen behind the boards, Sonata Arctica recorded Silence at Tico-Tico studios in time for a 2001 release.
