I have always been a fan of the ‘fantasy metal’ genre, where power metal is fused with the steel of wailing guitars, the silver of clean vocals, and the platinum of driving and conceptual lyrics. Kamelot have done just that, but forged a broadsword whose magnitude I have YET to see matched in the battlefield! As you listen to each song (all of which are ultimately enjoyable), you will hear a LOT more intricacy that you may not catch at first listen. These guys put a LOT of effort into each and every song, which will range from the epic powerbolt title track “The Fourth Legacy” driven by the unforgiving trio of Youngblood/Barry/Grillo, to the poignant and heart-warming tale of “The Sailorman’s Hymn” smoothed over by Khan’s excellent vocal capability. If you are a fan of Blind Guardian, Stratovarius, Demons & Wizards, Gamma Ray, Iron Savior, Nightwish (for their conceptuality and range), and the like — I guarentee you will find this CD a great addition to your metal library!
