14th August 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

Fresh off the heels of their latest full-length, the introspective, uplifting, vital The Awakening (#2 US Current Hard Music Albums chart/#27 Current Album Sales), modern heavy symphonic metal leaders KAMELOT are back with even more treats for their diehard followers! 

On November 17, 2023, in partnership with Knife Fight Media, Napalm Records will proudly reissue various editions of seminal KAMELOT albums Ghost Opera, Poetry For The Poisoned, and One Cold Winter’s Night. 2-CD Digipacks will be released of the Ghost Opera 2008 reissue Ghost Opera: The Second Coming and the Poetry For The Poisoned 2011 reissue (also featuring tracks recorded live at Wacken Open Air 2010), as well as of the original live album One Cold Winter’s Night. Napalm special edition vinyl of Ghost Opera, Poetry For The Poisoned and One Cold Winter’s Night will also be released in retail black and Napalm Mail Order exclusive marbled editions.

Pre-Order the new KAMELOT reissues HERE

KAMELOT’s sophomore live album, One Cold Winter’s Night, was originally released in 2006 and features the debut of current keyboardist Oliver Palotai, with guest appearances by Epica’s Simone Simons! Now, for the first time ever – fans can experience the album on vinyl! Recorded during the band’s touring cycle following their The Black Halo album release, One Cold Winter’s Night is an undoubted top-tier performance that should be part of any avid KAMELOT fan’s well-curated collection! Upon release, AllMusic praised the band’s talent showcased on the album, saying, “You get the feeling that they could probably play all their songs note-for-note while blindfolded, walking a tightrope, and reciting the alphabet (in reverse).” The album is available for pre-order now in 2-CD Digipak, 2-LP Black Gatefold vinyl, and 2-LP Marbled White/Blue Gatefold vinyl formats (the latter format is limited to 300 copies worldwide, and only available via the Napalm Records mail order/webstore)!

Ghost Opera: The Second Coming – the official double-disc reissue of KAMELOT’s widely-lauded eighth full-length and fan favorite, Ghost Opera – originally became available in 2008 and has since completely sold out, leaving KAMELOT fans clamoring for more. Recognized by followers as an exciting catalog must-have, the reissue not only featured Ghost Opera in its entirety (which charted Top 20 on the US Billboard Top Heatseekers chart upon release), but an entire second disc of 10 live tracks recorded in Belgrade, Serbia, in addition, to live music videos, bonus tracks and a remix of “Rule The World”. Now, KAMELOT fans around the world can experience re-enchantment once again with a second official reissue of Ghost Opera: The Second Coming! This must-have benchmark of the KAMELOT canon can be pre-ordered now in 2-CD Digipak! A reissue of Ghost Opera itself is also now available for pre-order in 1-LP Black Gatefold and 1-LP Marbled Orange/Black vinyl formats (the latter format is limited to 300 copies worldwide, and only available via the Napalm Records mail order/webstore). As Sea of Tranquility stated upon the set’s release in 2008, “Prepare yourself once again for the glory and majesty of the mighty KAMELOT.”
