It's really obvious that a band like Kamelot received popularity through their lead singer. Siege Perilous is the first album from symphonic/power metal band Kamelot to feature ex-Conception singer Roy Khan as the new lead singer. If you are a Conception fan then you know the beauty and power of Roy Khan's voice considering he is a trained opera singer who decided to leave and enter the pathway to metal. Many power metal bands usually lose their magic when it comes to having a new lead singer or main member but this is not the case with Kamelot. Siege Perilous contains brilliant tracks that start to open the doors to Kamelot's success in the future.

Rating: 8 A 6.9 for this album is absolutely ridiculous. Sure, it's different from the modern Kamelot, but that doesn't mean it's bad. Except for a few annoying songs (Once A Dream and Irea) I enjoy most songs on this album (especially tracks 1-4 and 6). Some great melodies to be found here, and even though Khan's vocals aren't as great as they could've been they still fit the music perfectly.

Agreed. Songs 1 - 4 are absolutely awesome. And I actually really like Once A Dream, but I can see how other people wouldn't like it.

Totally agreed there, except for Once A Dream. What an annoying song that is (due to the chorus).
