Man, the cover is truly awesome Hope they will tour again in Europe after the USA tour to see the new album live. Can't wait to hear it.

@Etaín : Haha, yes, but don't worry, nobody will know them.
@Der Meister : i've already seen them live being alone, it was worth it. Go if you can.

Wow great news. Great Cover art work too.
I don't know but seems that this album is more into symphonic / opera scene rather than power metal. This kind of metal music is getting quite popular .
Have you listen to samples about this album ?

Great album cover, I'm sure this album will be excellent.
wish they tour around here, but it seems kind of difficult

I'm sure it will be an masterpiece. the single "Ghost Opera" is just deadly!

Woohoo!! I can't wait for Kamelot's new album. Agree with Kronosd, the album title and the songs titles are great.
29.05.2007 - 23:52
Like the title, don't like the album art, and I don't like the single of Ghost Opera, but from the rest of album I've heard it's gonna fuckin' rule! Got it pre-ordered, now the wait continues.

Hits total: 3945 | This month: 2
