Do yourself the favor, spend time with this recording. Most people reading any of our reviews of these bands are here for a reason – We all love this kind of music.I no longer know if bands like Kamelot, Symphony X, Vanden Plas are power metal. Or is it music written and performed by progressive thinking musicians who happen to play electric instruments.Epica takes up where Karma left off stylistically, with some pounding numbers, some laid back pieces, and Khans soaring vocal chords ripping right through you. This is a roller coaster of melodies, tempos, and themes.Like most fans of music like this, I crave logenvity with these bands, and fortunately, Kamlelot is kind of just starting out, and Thomas Youngblood is obsessed with making music with this band, so I hope there is music making from these guys for as long as my ears work. Long live Kamlelot.
