The wait is almost over! This Friday, March 17, modern heavy symphonic metal leaders KAMELOT will finally unveil their most introspective, uplifting, vital release to date – their first full-length in five years, The Awakening. The album enters the KAMELOT 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.
Arriving on the heels of widely-lauded debut single, “One More Flag in the Ground” and operatic anthem “Opus of the Night (Ghost Requiem)” (featuring Grammy nominated, soundtrack-featured cellist Tina Guo), KAMELOT has revealed the new album’s third single, the massive “Eventide.” The track is a modernized banger of epic proportions, featuring the band’s lauded trademark soundscapes and exploring heartfelt themes of lifelong companionship, unwavering loyalty and lasting memories.
KAMELOT vocalist Tommy Karevik offers:
“‘Eventide’ is a celebration of lifelong companionship and unwavering loyalty. A calming voice from the side of the bed in the greatest time of need, sharing beautiful memories as one heart is slowing down and their time together is coming to an end.”
KAMELOT guitarist Thomas Youngblood says:
“With The Awakening, we have one of our most diverse albums in years. We’ve fused elements from progressive, power and gothic metal to symphonic and melodic metal on this one. Working with incredible guest artists from around the music industry and having producer Sascha Paeth and Jacob Hansen mixing gave us another step up on overall sound. This album offers everything to KAMELOT fans and also reaches beyond borders to new metal and hard rock legions.”
