Knife Fight Media is proud to announce that Kamelot have formed the recording label Kamelot Media Group (KMG Recordings). Teaming up with DisManic Distribution via E1 and the brand marketing and promotions company Knife Fight Media, the premier KMG label release will be the North American debut of Kamelot's highly anticipated 9th studio album, Poetry For The Poisoned, on September 14, 2010.

The formation of KMG Recordings seems a natural progression for the group. Guitarist Thomas Youngblood states: "We are in a very unique and fast changing era for the music world; I am very excited about the new venture of KMG in North America. We have a team of experienced and passionate people working with us on this new release, which will be another step for Kamelot and our fans."

KMG Recordings turned to Gunter Ford, music veteran and founder of World Entertainment inc. and Knife Fight Media, who worked with them on their Ghost Opera and The Black Halo releases, to oversee and manage the new label. Gunter adds: "In these changing times, Knife Fight Media was created in order to provide marketing, promotion, product development and label management services for artists and labels in need of maximizing their Brand in a fast changing and challenging landscape of the North American Music Industry. I believe the "Kamelot Brand" is one of the leaders in its genre. I will be working closely with Thomas Youngblood, Roy Khan, DisManic and the Knife Fight Media team around this fantastic new release to grow Poetry For The Poisoned even beyond the level of success we experienced with their previous releases in North America."

Poetry for the Poisoned will be available in three versions (Regular CD edition, Digipak CD with bonus DVD and 2LP gatefold vinyl edition). DVD bonus material includes: Kamelot video "The Great Pandemonium", exclusive and in depth interviews with each Kamelot member, Kamelot "Pick and Play" for the song "The Great Pandemonium", Poetry for the Poisoned background images, exclusive video footage from Norway Rock Festival 2010 and an uncut version of the bonus song "House on a Hill" .

Kamelot will release Poetry for the Poisoned through earMusic/Edel in Europe on September 10, 2010. Marquee/Avalon Records will release the album in Japan.

Sounds promising. I have a feeling this is going to be something new... the song titles smell fresh. I just hope its in the good way.

Finally.......The Track list Looks awesome.....especially the four parts song..

Judging by the names of the tracks, this will be better than Ghost Opera actually. Too bad they split up the title-track in four parts, it should've been one long track! Still will be awesome I guess!

Looking forward to hearing the guest vocals

Anyone heard any samples yet?

I found one video may have been part of The Great Pandemonium live in Europe, but I couldn't be certain. If it was, it sounded promising.
