29. Kamelot – Silverthorn
I thought I was done with Kamelot. I’d always loved their mid-paced, symphonic power metal because of their vocalist, Roy Kahn. He’ll always been one of my favorite singers ever. But he left the band a couple of years ago, after Kamelot put out a very lackluster album. I don’t even know why I gave this new album a listen. But I’m glad I did. The songwriting has an urgency that the band has been lacking for 5 years, and new vocalist Tommy Karevik fits into the band seamlessly. No, he’s not Roy Kahn. But he’s damn good in his own right. The single, Sacrimony, is basically a quintessential Kamelot track. Ignore (or delight in) the cheesy lyrics – this song’s chorus is the worst-written thing I’ve heard all year; its utterly meaningless – and get caught up in the melodies. Eh, this is the sort of thing I have a soft spot for.
