Kamelot! Their new album comes out in a week. I am pretty psyched! The first single's music video has been released, and can be seen here: (Kamelot - The Great Pandemonium) It's the first track on the album, and probably the hardest. Kamelot has a tradition of making the first track a bit harder than their standard, so while I'm not a fan of all of the screaming, the rest of the album should be awesome.

While the previews are getting me excited, the album title? Not so much. Nightwish's The Poet and the Pendulum was huge, and released just a few years ago. Thus, "Poetry for the Poisoned" is not acceptable as an album title in this genre for a few years yet. Of course, I've never been a fan of Kamelot's album titles, so meh. Some of their songs have awesome titles though.

In related news, their vocalist, Khan, is sick. Literally ill. The most unwell singer to be born. But seriously, all jokes aside, they just announced that he has some undisclosed sickness. I hope he is able to overcome it and continue singing. It would be a shame to lose a great talent like his.

This album is extremely good. Definitely alot better than Ghost Opera.  =)

They originally had planned to finish out the NA tour with singer Michael Erikson(from Circus Maximus) and decided to cancel it instead. I'm glad they did. I can personally say that Kamelot live is one of the best shows I have ever been to(and I've been to literally dozens of concerts), and it would not be the same without Roy Khan on vox.
 
According to an interview with Youngblood(http://www.metalpaths.com/interviews/kamelot-thomas-youngblood,5294); Khan's "illness" is some sort of breakdown.  They also appear to be doing the 2011 EU with Rhapsody singer Fabio Lione now. =/

Sara Groves. She was a college acquaintance and she has the sweetest voice and a sweeter spirit.

You can always get what you want if you never count the cost.
