Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is Kamelot's 4th album and 2nd album with former Conception singer Roy Khan. His voice makes Kamelot what they are to me: A beautiful mix of Symphonic Rock and Power Metal. The catchiness of his vocal melodies and the soaring emotions that his voice gives us are very desired. This is the first of the four Kamelot albums that are very superb and show off a lot of potential.

The album starts off with an intro, then the track Fourth Legacy, a very catchy track and starts with the "usual" Kamelot phrase, the usual Power Metal chord and a speedy, but EXTREMELY melodic chorus as usual. The album of course goes on and goes on and for me, it is extremely hard to differentiate between tracks (The same problem that I face on the later Kamelot albums too). This is where we run into a big problem. Kamelot, no matter how majestic and beautiful they sound, always faces problem. The problem is that almost all their albums sound similar to each other, and from here 'til Epica, all the albums basically sound similar.

This album is where the band starts their path to maturity and that maturity could be quickly felt on the album: The Black Halo.

A good album with 3.5 stars, but The Black Halo is recommended over this one.

King of Loss | 3/5 |
