Kamelot are one of metal's most unique, influential and prestigious acts that blends symphonic
metal, prog, power metal and world music - so it comes as little surprise that the whole metal
world held its breath in anticipation of The Shadow Theory!
Deeply intrigued by analytical psychology, Kamelot spent the past year engineering a groundbreaking album leaning on
three pillars: The Shadow Empire (The global mind), The Shadow Key (The Resistance) and The
Shadow Wall (The veil that blinds us from the truth). A dystopian glimpse at the complexity of the
human mind and its place in an oppressive society - an obvious parallel to all of us, in the here
and now. And most of all a fascinating and eerie backdrop for thirteen lush and artsy songs that
boast Kamelot`s trademarks; yet the band steps out to add new and modern elements along with
bringing in some amazing emotions that harken back to their earlier days.
Produced by Sascha Paeth (Avantasia) and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, more), the theatrical and beautifully
dark The Shadow Theory is not only a new chapter in Kamelot`s illustrious career, it also is their
most thrilling and diverse effort so far!
