KAMELOT Signs to Napalm Records!

Symphonic Metal Masters KAMELOT entered the studio in mid 2014

to begin recording their follow-up to the highly acclaimed chart topping album Silverthorn. The new album will make KAMELOT history as it will be released worldwide ( excl. Asia ) on Napalm Records/Universal and Napalm Records/ADA-Warner as an exclusive licensing deal through the band’s KAMELOT MUSIC LLC this April/May 2015. In support of this highly anticipated release, KAMELOT will hit the road starting in March for select UK shows, followed by a massive North America Tour this Spring, with special guests Dragonforce (UK). Selected Summer Festivals will follow and the band returns to Europe in September/October for their biggest headliner tour to date.

 

“We are extremely excited about having a growing and hungry independent label like Napalm with the power of major distribution that we will get with Universal and ADA Warner.” states KAMELOT founder and guitarist Thomas Youngblood

 

 

Thomas Caser, Vice President of Napalm Records:

“Being a fan of the band since the band’s Epica release it has always been a dream for me to work with KAMELOT! Finally this dream came true and we at Napalm Records are delighted and honored to announce this signing. I foresee a bright future and we will spare no efforts to bring the band to where it deserves – the top! Watch out for the band’s monumental new album this spring and witness KAMELOT & Napalm Records conquering the world in 2015!”

 

 

KAMELOT have held their own, very special position in the world of rock and heavy music: their elaborate melodic metal has always opened itself in a remarkably clever way to like-minded styles, integrating progressive elements as well as cross-references to doom/gothic metal and classical music, which have allowed their songs to define their own genre. Two of their most successful releases in particular, namely the albums Karma (2001) and The Black Halo (2005), are prime examples of KAMELOT’s multi-layered approach, intensity and outstanding musicality. Their last effort Silverthorn, saw the band raise this demanding standard even higher, because the album stands the test of time as a true masterpiece of grand gestures, gritty melodies and haunting atmospheres, showcasing KAMELOT at their finest.
