Symphonic power metallers Kamelot have just premiered their brand new video for the song "Sacrimony (Angel Of Afterlife)" and you can now watch it below. This song is the debut single off their forthcoming album Silverthorn, their first with new singer Tommy Karevik. The video was directed by Ivan Čolić and filmed in Belgrade, Serbia and features appearances by Amaranthe vocalist Elize Ryd and The Agonist vocalist Alissa White-Gluz.
Silverthorn hits stores on October 30th in North America, October 26th in Germany and October 29th in the rest of Europe via Steamhammer/SPV.
True, which further deepens my fear for the fate of Seventh Wonder. Kamelot has been one of my top 3 bands forever, but I loved SW. Mercy Falls was an incredible album, The Great Escape was slightly weaker but the strong tracks carried it. But no matter how much Tommy "pledges" he'll still work for both bands, fact is this isn't a side project, this is Kamelot. One of the most recognized power/prog bands in the industry. I only wonder how long SW will sit around waiting for Tommy to return from touring, recording sessions, photo shoots, meetings, etc before they say "Screw this" and move on.
Kamelot is a whole new beast from what Tommy is used to in SW. And he is only one man. There is no way he can work fulltime and record albums for 2 bands, and go on world tours with Kamelot, then come back and tour with SW, and expect both bands to have the patience for him to make that happen. And the worst part is Tommy is SO good, and sounds SO incredible for both bands, I honestly can't decide which band I rather have him stay in. Regardless, its no secret that in a years time from now one of these bands will be searching for a new singer, which is a shame.
I almost fear you may be right, I just hope we won't have to see such a travesty for either band anytime soon. However if such events were to come by in the near future, as much as I love Tommy with Kamelot, I'd rather have him return to Seventh Wonder fulltime to be honest. Kamelot has proven themselves without Khan, and I believe as long as Youngblood still is in charge of things, they will land on both of their feet and find someone worthy. Seventh Wonder on the other hand has such a unique sound with Tommy and especially his approach to writing vocal melodies, that I think they would lose much more of their identity/quality if he was to leave them for Kamelot instead of the other way around, if you know what I mean. Still, I'm in the same boat as you, would hate to see it go down this path for either band.
