Clementine Delauney from Visions Of Atlantis: "Visions Of Atlantis will join the fleet of the Shadow Empire in 2019 and I am more than thrilled to share the stage with Kamelot again!

Kamelot Posts New Video Online

Following the first leg of a massive World Tour in North America during April and May, it’s now time kick off the next leg and bring The Shadow Theory overseas! Kamelot is returning to Europe for their biggest headliner tour to date. Special guests on the tour include Leaves’ Eyes, Visions of Atlantis, Dynazty (Sweden), Circus Maximus (Oslo) vocalist Lauren Hart (Once Human) and more!

Just in time for the upcoming tour, the band has released a brand new music video for the track "MindFall Remedy!" The live footage is taken from Kamelot's North American tour and just offers a glimpse of what you can expect when the band takes the stage.

"The North American Tour was our biggest ever and we had to chronicle it in some way, the fans were so amazing. We decided to shoot this video and mix in scenes from the tour. We cannot wait to return to the US and Canada for the next run!", states Kamelot's Thomas Youngblood.

The meaning of the song and title "MindFall Remedy" sparks some debate, but Kamelot singer Tommy Kaverik sums it up beautifully:

"In this material world, full of vanity and beautifying filters, it is easy to turn to those things when looking for validation and comfort. We have come to expect external gratification to lift us up, solve our insecurities and give us a meaningful existence. With this song we want to encourage people to look inside themselves for answers. Only then can we fully learn to respect and love ourselves and grow as people. There is a way to unlock your inhibitions, and only you possess the key..." More...

Bloodstock 2018: Day One

Festival season is drawing to a close for another year, with the likes of Wacken, Graspop, Hellfest and others all over until 2019. This year, Metal Underground had the pleasure of attending Bloodstock Open Air, the fastest growing metal festival in the United Kingdom, held at Catton Park, Derbyshire and featuring bands from all across the globe, from legends to unsigned acts. So how did this year's edition of Bloodstock go? Read on, MacDuff.

The grounds open on Thursday, as the finishing touches are being put on the main stage, though fans are still treated to an evening of metal courtesy of the second stage, named after the SOPHIE charity (Stamp Out Prejudice Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere) which this year was headlined by Russian folk metal band, Arkona. I was only able to catch one set, which was from British death metal outfit Bloodshot Dawn, a solid performance which attracted a decent sized crowd and a positive response from those in attendance. One thing that will hit you immediately after entering the arena area is how expensive everything is, even by festival standards. We expect prices to be raised at festivals, but £7 for a standard burger is ridiculous, add fries and a soft drink and it comes to £14.80, way more than the mediocre refreshments should cost. This is why it's useful to bring food and drink of your own and eat in the campsite during some downtime. More...

Kamelot Releases "My Therapy" Video

Kamelot released a new music video for the track "My Therapy," the latest clip from the band's 2015 album "Haven" (see review here).

"My Therapy" serves to put a spotlight on social anxiety that effects up to 20% of adults worldwide. Kamelot vocalist Tommy Karevik adds: "The original idea of the song was based on experiments done years ago on children where they would be clinically taken care of, but never held, loved or nurtured. The outcome was disastrous and proves that in this sometimes complicated world spinning faster and faster, the very foundation of our health and well being really rests upon something very simple and uncomplicated... The human touch...."

Check out Kamelot in concert at the following upcoming events:

23.05.16 JP - Tokyo / Liquidroom
25.05.16 JP - Nagoya / Club Quattro
26.05.16 JP - Osaka / Umeda Club Quattro
