Album Review

As recently as the mid- to late '90s, it was pretty darn incomprehensible for a band to merge heavy metal with a symphony orchestra. But a decade later, the number of "symphonic metal" bands seemed to be growing by the day — as the genre was being spearheaded by such acts as Kamelot (with most of symphonic metal bands hailing from Europe, Kamelot is an exception — they're natives of Florida). On their eighth full-length overall, 2007's Ghost Opera, the band continues to merge tricky prog metal with swirling strings — following a musical path not all that far removed from such "thinking man's metallists" as Queensrÿche and Dream Theater. Kamelot's symphonic metal hybrid is best sampled on such album standouts as "Rule the World," "Blucher," and the title track, while a track such as "Anthem" seems custom-made for a fleet-footed ballet or ice-skating adaptation. Both bombastic and complex, those Kamelot boys sure can play!

Customer Reviews

Ghost Opera shows an unlikely maturity...

This album is the culmination of all the albums that preceded it. Ghost Opera is a slick piece of work, that offers the listener an insight into what Kamelot is all about. It is by far their most mature album, with tracks like Blucher, Love you to Death, and the title track, Kamelot shows why they are at the top of their game, and the best the genre has to offer. A must have for fans of good music everywhere. A -

Ghost Opera, hopefully a new start for Kamelot.

I simply love this album because they took out the best part of Kamelot musically, and put them into songs that didn't relate to kingdoms etc. But dont get me wrong, I loved songs like Lost and Damned, Karma, and March of Memphisto. I found that every song was equally as well written as the last, unlike many of their other albums where you find one shining star.

The beast

this is by far there best album yet a must have for kamelot fans
