20 Songs, 1 Hour 24 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Symphonic metal troupe Kamelot have always had a flair for high drama, and this fantastical concept album is no exception. “The Mission” opens The Shadow Theory with a sweeping orchestral intro before segueing into the theatrical passion play of “Phantom Divine (Shadow Empire).” “RavenLight” boasts flurries of harmonic squeals and a space-age synth-guitar solo as vocalist Tommy Karevik delivers a lofty, operatic performance. Later, Beyond the Black chanteuse Jennifer Haben joins Karevik for an elegant duet on the piano-driven ballad “In Twilight Hours.”

Good, but not great

If this album had been the follow-up to Silverthorn, it would’ve been excellent. As a follow-up to Haven, though, it doesn’t feel as strong. None of it is bad, the entire album is enjoyable to listen to, but none of the songs stand out and catch attention the way several songs on Haven did. Many of the songs were a little too similar to one another. Again, it’s absolutely a good album and 100% worth buying, but it doesn’t hold up as powerfully as Haven did.

SOOOOO GOOD A MUST BUY

PHANTOM DIVINE and RAVENLIGHT are by far my favorite songs of all time by this band, I'm not really a metal person, but KAMELOT really does a great job of bringing people into their fan base, Tommys vocals are amazing, keep doing what your doing, you guys are AWSOME

Finally !

Night wish survived with the change up.... now I can say so has Kamelot. I love this album. Just seems like vocals and the band finally figured each other out. Just my opinion but this is my second favorite Kamelot record.
