DOH! You are SO right. I completely forgot about the *other* date formatting.
Yeah, the more logical Euro format always throws me off, too.
KAMELOT GUITARIST THOMAS YOUNGBLOOD TALKS NEW ALBUM - "A MIX OF THE FOURTH LEGACY AND THE BLACK HALO"
Fourth Legacy and Black Halo? That's a strong sales pitch. Not that I needed to be pitched, but it does make me a little giddy inside.
Pretty excited about this. Went to their show last night in London and they played a song off it - first time to an audience. Sounded pretty solid. Would have purchased anyway due to them being one of the first metal bands I really got into.
KAMELOT VOCALIS TOMMY KAREVIK TALKS NEW ALBUM - "EVEN MORE DIVERSE THAN SILVERTHORN"
Kamelot vocalist Tommy Karevik is featured in a new interview with RAMzine, which recently took place at Hammerfest 2015 , which took place in Pwllheli , Gwynedd, North Wales. He discusses the writing and recording for the band's new album, Haven:
New tune: Veil of Elysium
I think Tommy sounds a bit more like himself in it, which is heartening. Pretty good tune, very safe, very power-y.
Dont care for the mix, or the song.
As much as I have loved this band in the past I think they have been regurgitating the same musical ideas over and over for the last four albums. Nothing on the past four releases (Haven included) has come close to moving me the way The Black Halo, Epica, Karma, or The Fourth Legacy has. I am happy for their success and think Tommy does a wonderful job singing but this may be the first Kamelot release that I don't buy, I will have to wait until I hear more than two songs. They still put on a fabulous show and I would like to see them live, but I would just like to hear something different from them... hear them grow musically and as songwriters.
It sounds too similar to Sacrimony and less good (and I don't even like Sacrimony that much, although I was more impressed when that song came out than this one). I feel the same way as Azrael LenGraden about their last four albums not coming close to anything from The Fourth Legacy to The Black Halo. I'm dissapointed with the new single, I must say. It didn't give me a Fourth Legacy or Black Halo vibe as Youngblood described the album, more like a Poetry for the Poisoned or Silverthorn vibe. Maybe the rest of the album will be better...
I actually quite like the song on the first listen... very polished and smooth just as you'd expect from Kamelot. That said, I do agree that their sound/identity matured some time ago and peaked with the Black Halo. Everything since then has been very well done, but nothing new to my ears. That said, I like the sound and love the vocals, so more of the same isn't a bad thing for me.
I think the song is well written and well delivered. However, it's so paint by numbers, you feel as though you can see every note unfolding before it ever gets to your ear. Similarly, while Tommy sounds great, his vocals are so completely shoehorned into the Kamelot format, he merely sounds like a lesser version of Khan.
Well at least Napalm has the good sense to lead with a high energy power metal track rather than a mid-tempo sing-songy plodder.
I like it. Really stoked about this release. I get the complaints about the last few albums but they are all still fun to listen to.
