Kamelot Epica on 2LP
Available on Vinyl for the First Time in the US!
Thomas Youngblood and drummer Richard Warner founded Kamelot in Tampa, FL back in 1992. In 1994 the band signed a deal with Noise Records, and the release of debut Eternity followed in August of the next year. The press praised the album as one of most promising debuts of all time. In 1996 successor Dominion hit the stores, an opus that was even more diverse and varied than their debut. Then in 1997, drummer Warner and singer Mark Vanderbilt were replaced by Casey Grillo and former Conception singer Khan, for the production of third album, Siege Perilous.
The new line-up returned to the Gate Studio in Wolfsburg to produce their fourth studio effort, The Fourth Legacy. The summer of 2000 brought the New Allegiance Tour through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Greece and Spain, during which the recordings for Kamelot’s first live album The Expedition were made. Only a few months later the band presented their fifth album entitled Karma.
Sixth full-length Epica arrived in 2003 and combined all the fortes of the previous productions with new ideas and majestic sounds. Produced by Sascha Paeth and Miro, the songs featured the signature Kamelot sound with an emphasis on a lyrical and musical concept that takes the listener through a journey around the world. Epica proved to be yet another giant step in Kamelot's ascension to the top of the metal arena.
