Silverthorn, Kamelot's new album is out featuring their new lead singer. Perhaps surprisingly, the new singer (Tommy Karevik) sounds a lot like the old singer (Roy Kahn) - perhaps because Karevik is a Swede and Kahn is Norwegian. Maybe there's a common lutefisk connection, or something.
There is a common songwriting thread - the same core of the band still writes the songs. And so there's a commonality that Kamelot fans should like.
I've only listened to some of the album (in the car with #2 Son), but it sounds like the most classically operatic of the Kamelot oeuvre*. Certainly this song opens that way. If you like Rock Opera - real Rock Opera - then this should be something that you'll like.
* I only use the term because I don't think I've used the word in the 6500 posts here. So there.
