Symphonic metal act Kamelot return after two years of touring the globe and twelve months of intense writing and recording. In mid-2014 the band entered the studio to begin recording their follow-up to the highly acclaimed chart topping album "Silverthorn" (see review here). The new album titled "Haven" 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 on May 5, 2015 (North America) and May 8, 2015 (Europe and rest of the world).
Today the artwork and track listing have been unveiled. "Haven" will be available to pre-order in multiple exclusive and limited bundle packages at the Napalm Records American & European Webstore - starting Thursday, February 26, 2015.
The new album features all the signature elements of Kamelot but the band steps out to add new and modern 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 'Haven' album has an undertone of a world going insane. There is a grey cloud that is forming over our world. We are here to find that silver lining with an album that is both dark and melancholy yet uplifting and giving the listener a 'Haven' in a world gone mad. We are really proud of the song elements and diversity on 'Haven'" adds guitarist Thomas Youngblood. "The songs run the gambit of dark and melancholy to uplifting and melodic elements." states vocalist Tommy Karevik.
"'Haven' has an aggressive edge to it that is the representation of the band as The Revolutionary Change in the storyline," Kamelot's Oliver Palotai tells us. More...
