Album Review

Silverthorn, the tenth studio album from Tampa, Florida-based fantasy metal veterans Kamelot, is also their first with new vocalist Tommy Karevik, who took over from Roy Khan in 2011. Cut from the same ornate cloth as recent offerings from contemporaries like Rhapsody of Fire, Nightwish, Avantasia, and Epica, the band's third concept album takes place in the 19th century and revolves around a recently deceased little girl named Jolee, her twin brothers, and an affluent family with some terrible secrets. Produced by the venerable opera metal team of German multi-instrumentalist Sascha Paeth and keyboardist Miro, Silverthorn marks the group's return to independent German label SPV GmbH.

Customer Reviews

An extraordinary return to the spotlight

Poetry for the Poisoned was certainly a good album but for me it just lacked the enthusiasm that Ghost Opera and Black Halo had. With Silverthorn, that enthusiasm and strength returned. The concept was brilliant and played just like a movie. As much as I loved Roy Khan and as disappointed as I was that he left the band, I have to say Tommy Karevik is actually slightly better. He not only delivers the same operatic capabilities that Khan had, but he also has more of a metal voice that fits the band even better. Overall, the album was just incredible, I can't exactly track by track it because it's just one 5/5 masterpiece. But if I were to pick out my top three tracks, they would be:
3. Sacrimony ( The first single and still super catchy)
2. Song for Jolee (A ballad that showcases Karevik's capabilities)
1. Prodigal Son (3 seconds short of Memento Mori, making it their second longest epic. And wow, it's just godlike)
Alright, go ahead and buy it!

P.S. In case you're wondering how I heard it so early, it's streaming on But stream it, don't pirate it.

This is coming from a Kamelot fan...

First of all before I start my review, this album is NOT a bad album, but this isn't an amazing album like a lot of people say it is. Tommy is an outstanding singer and he did amazing on this album, so this isn't why I didn't love the album, but Kamelot just wrote a lot of boring songs on this album. Yes I said boring. This album is just average and generic, almost every single song sounds the same as the album continued, and unlike their other albums, there wasn't a single time where a specific part of the song just grabbed me and instantly made me rewind it so I can hear it again. I really wanted to love this album, but there wasn't anything here in this album to make me want to listen to it again. I'm speaking as a long time honest Kamelot fan, but they could've done a lot better with this album...

Even without Roy Khan...

Even without Roy Khan as the main singer (which really made me sad), this album sounds like it is going to be amazing. The new vocalist sounds great and very similar to Khan, which means the band will keep a similar theme sound. I already have the single, and I'm in love with it! The new album can't get here soon enough!
