KAMELOT, who recently signed to the Japanese label King Records, have announced that they have returned to their former label Steamhammer/SPV Records, who released two of their albums, “The Black Halo” and “Ghost Opera”, released in 2005 and 2007 respectively.
On the style and content of the record and the return to Steamhammer/SPV, guitarist Thomas Youngblood states:
The new songs sound more symphonic and melodic than our last two studio recordings. The material brings to mind albums such as Karma (2001) and The Black Halo (2005). In addition, this will be the best production that Kamelot have ever delivered. Because while other acts tend to opt for low-budget productions due to the difficult market situation, we have gone the opposite way: the new album will be a real statement, in terms of our compositions as well as in terms of our sound.”
Our new album marks another step and a new chapter for Kamelot and our amazing fans!
We are very pleased to be working again with the entire SPV team on this very exciting release.
SPV/Steamhammer A&R representative Olly Hahn on re-welcoming KAMELOT:
We are more than proud to welcome back one of the best metal bands around here at SPV. From 2005 to 2009 we had already the pleasure to work very successfully with Thomas Youngblood and Co., which we will continue and increase with the new masterpiece coming in September 2012.
Andreas Rennmann of Brinkmann & Partner adds:
I’m absolutely proud to welcome Kamelot back at SPV. We all believe in the fantastic history of the band and are absolutely sure that this upcoming release will be one of the most successful albums!
The band will b touring Europe in November. Check out the dates below:
