Modern symphonic metal icons KAMELOT reveal lyric video for ‘NightSky’

18th March 2024 0 By Jon Deaux

Modern heavy symphonic metal leaders KAMELOT¬†will kick off their North American “Kamelot: Awaken The World Tour 2024” – featuring support from Swedish heavy metal frontrunners HammerFall and modern symphonic metal unit Ad Infinitum (featuring KAMELOT¬†touring guest vocalist Melissa Bonny) – on 25th April. In celebration of the tour’s upcoming launch, KAMELOT¬†have unveiled a brand new lyric video for The Awakening album track and fan-favourite ‘NightSky’ – one of the record’s most hard-hitting offerings.

Bandleader and guitarist Thomas Youngblood says:¬†“This one is a favorite of mine to play live – we can’t ’til April for the upcoming tour.”

Singer Tommy Karevik adds:¬†“‘NightSky’ is about the invisible ties that extend well beyond this life and echo into the next.”¬†

KAMELOT‘s latest album, The Awakening, debuted at #2 on the US Current Hard Music Albums chart and #27 on the Current Album Sales chart, and connected with fans and critics alike – touted by many as the best late-era KAMELOT release to date. The album enters the band’s legacy as their most massive and diverse offering yet – mixing symphonic, gothic, melodic, progressive and power metal styles while yielding some of the heaviest tracks in the band’s history.¬†Having reigned supreme with the release of internationally top-charting melodic metal pinnacles such as The Fourth Legacy (1999), The Black Halo (2005), Silverthorn (2012), Haven (2015, #1 US Hard Rock Albums), and most recently 2018‚Äôs acclaimed The Shadow Theory (#2 US Hard Music Albums), KAMELOT‚Äôs intense brand of ultramodern gothic and symphonic theatricality is amplified further and with more emotionality than ever on The Awakening.

Showcasing the incomparable, stage-seasoned vocal acrobatics of Tommy Karevik and increasingly airtight, renowned technical teamwork of guitarist Thomas Youngblood, drummer Alex Landenburg, keyboardist Oliver Palotai and bassist Sean Tibbetts, KAMELOT’s score-like 13th studio album is accented by guest contributions from the likes of Melissa Bonny (Ad Infinitum) and renowned instrumentalists like violinist Florian Janoske and cellist Tina Guo. 

The Awakening features crystal clear modern production helmed by the band and longtime producer Sascha Paeth, plus mixing and mastering by Jacob Hansen of Hansen Studios.
