Kamelot‘s new album, The Awakening,” enters the band’s legacy as their most massive and diverse offering yet – mixing Symphonic, Gothic, Melodic, Progressive and Power metal styles while yielding some of the heaviest tracks in the band’s history. Having reigned supreme with the release of internationally top-charting melodic metal pinnacles such as “The Fourth Legacy” (1999), “The Black Halo” (2005), “Silverthorn” (2012), “Haven (2015, #1 US Hard Rock Albums), and most recently 2018’s acclaimed “The Shadow Theory” (#2 US Hard Music Albums), Kamelot’s intense brand of ultramodern gothic and symphonic theatricality is amplified further and with more emotionality than ever on “The Awakening.”

Showcasing the incomparable, stage-seasoned vocal acrobatics of Tommy Karevik and increasingly airtight, renowned technical teamwork of guitarist Thomas Youngblood, drummer Alex Landenburg, keyboardist Oliver Palotai and bassist Sean TibbettsKamelot’s score-like 13th studio album is accented by guest contributions from the likes of Melissa Bonny (Ad Infinitum) and renowned instrumentalists like violinist Florian Janoske and cellist Tina Guo. “The Awakening” features crystal clear modern production helmed by the band and longtime producer Sascha Paeth, plus mixing and mastering by Jacob Hansen of Hansen Studios.
