Kamelot – The Awakening | Album Review

Symphonic Power Metal with plenty of theatrical presence and bombast and high moments. Meaning it’s symphonic and power metal done right. Not only is the guitar and keywork great but Tommy’s voice is gold throughout the album. Tracks like “Eventide” and “Opus Of The Night” get stuck in your head after one listen. This is a dark story with tons of heavy AND quiet moments and sometimes you are waiting a bit for the next big moment, but it always comes and Kamelot doesn’t leave you hanging long. The Awakening is an album for metal fans that want a full album experience where you take in the little elements and sing along with the big choruses. Big guest features and as dark, brooding, and gothic as it is fun. 8/10.
