Ghost Opera: The Second Coming” – the official double-disc reissue of Kamelot’s widely-lauded eighth full-length and fan favorite, “Ghost Opera” – originally became available in 2008 and has since completely sold out, leaving Kamelot fans clamoring for more. Recognized by followers as an exciting catalog must-have, the reissue not only featured “Ghost Opera” in its entirety (which charted Top 20 on the US Billboard Top Heatseekers chart upon release), but an entire second disc of 10 live tracks recorded in Belgrade, Serbia, in addition to live music videos, bonus tracks and a remix of “Rule The World”. Now, Kamelot fans around the world can experience re-enchantment once again with a second official reissue of “Ghost Opera: The Second Coming.”

This must-have benchmark of the Kamelot canon can be pre-ordered now in 2-CD Digipak! A reissue of “Ghost Opera itself is also now available for pre-order in 1xLP Black Gatefold and 1-LP Marbled Orange/Black vinyl formats (the latter format is limited to 300 copies worldwide, and only available via the Napalm Records mail order/webstore).
