The Hyde of Kamelot

Since the Black Halo Kamelot has proven a chameleon in the power metal scene. In Poetry of Poisoned we bear witness to a infectious darkness that festers in the very hearts of men and is released in a blaze of pyretic glory. The entire album seethes with an ebony silky beautiful that is terrifying and erotic. Roy Khan lets himself go in every track teasing the listener ever onward to this wonderland of corruption. As stated by others, Zodiac drips with unbridled malice dressed in gentle refinery. Poetry for the poisoned, the heart of the album is the crescendo of absolute beauty. The guitar riffs are at times subtle and gentle and other times merciless and unrelenting. Necropolis is a perfect example of synesthesia used as a weapon. The welcoming nightmare reverberating from this track is worthy of Poe. For any Kamelot fan this is a must buy cd. For any fan of power/progressive metal this is a must buy. For anyone that loves music that moves them and brings them into its own little world, this is a must buy cd.

It will not leave you wanting

Making a new album is stressful on a band, usually. Not only do they have to impress their old fans, but they have to create music that sounds different. Very few bands manage to do that correctly, but I am glad to say that Kamelot has pulled off a darker tone superbly without disappointing me, a long-time fan. There are a lot of guest artists in this album, and it really brings the songs to a new level.

The Great Pandemonium - The album opens up with a great track. It immediately sets the tone for the rest of the album. The guest vocals (Bjorn from "Soilwork") are well done, as well. (5/5)
If Tomorrow Came - This song will blow you away from the minute you begin listening to it. Youngblood (the guitarist) really steps it up with this song. (5/5)
The Zodiac - After the minute intro of "Dear Editor," the song explodes. This song was written really well, and the guest vocals from Jon Oliva (Savatage, Jon Oliva's Pain, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) really fit the Zodiac well. (4.5/5)
Hunter's Season - This is an amazing song that contains a guitar solo by Gus G. (Ozzy Osbourne, Firewind) that caught me off guard and left me wondering how they would pull this song off live. (4.5/5)
House on a Hill - Roy Khan (Kamelot's Vocalist) and Simone Simons (Epica's female vocalist) have the two most amazing voices in this genere, I believe. Their voices are beautiful together and this song was written superbly. A true Kamelot song. (5/5)
Necropolis - Kamelot filled this album with great songs. Catchy, dark, and has great guitar work once again. (5/5)
My Train of Thoughts - Has some very cool verses and chorus melodies. Awesome background effects, as well. (5/5)
Seal of Woven Years - This song has one of the most epic intros on this album, which is why I was so annoyed when the vocals kicked in. On first listen I was disgusted with this song, but since I have come to actually enjoy this song a lot. However, it is the only song on the album that actually disappointed me on the first listen. (3.5/5)
Poetry for the Poisoned (Pts. 1-4) - I don't know if it is because I had just come off a disappointment that I was so blown away by this song or not, but this song is EPIC regardless! The song moves along very smoothly and the reappearance of Simone Simons only makes the song that much better. The only problem was that it ended. (6/5)
Once Upon a Time - Kamelot loves ending their albums with songs that move at a blinding speed and leave you dazed. This song does its duty well. (4.5/5)
Thespian Drama - I know that this song isn't on the iTunes version of the album, but this bonus track is amazing. If you haven't heard this song yet, go and do it now. The song is an instrumental, but the musical talent in this song is on par with Liquid Tension Experiment (Dream Theater's instrumental band) in my book and leaves the album with an even better feeling than Once Upon a Time. (5/5)

I wasn't planning on giving such high scores to each song when I sat down to do this review, but when I really thought about all of the songs, I realized how amazing they each were. This album is on the level of The Black Halo for me, if not past it. Everything about this album impresses me now, and the brief disappointments I had with the album at the beginning have become things I look forward to listening to again. Just don't make us wait 3 years for another studio album again, Kamelot...

Final Verdict: Buy the album if you enjoy this genere of music. It will not leave you wanting.


Overall it's OK. Nothing special. Nothing jumps out at you. maybe I'll need to listen to it 3 or 4 more times, but after 3 times of listening to the whole thing, I think one should be able to judge it. Oh well, they still are a great live band.
