KAMELOT One Cold Winter's Night
SPV 99902 (2-CD) (2006)

Recorded in February 2006 in Norway, it had been a particularly long and bitter winter, band and crowd go crazy on this strong and epic live album.

Symphonic power metal from Florida, it works well and is not overly reliant on classical, speed, operatic or progressive, just symphonic power to the extreme with relevant nods. New singer Roy Kahn is an asset to the band, able to hit high and low with ease and without strain too.

'Soul Society' is a real stand out, with keyboard runs complementing the heavy guitar well, and occasional almost choral backing vocals. 'The Edge Of Paradise' opens equally strongly with some Norse chanting in the backing vocals before the power metal comes in. The haunting and epic (13 minute) 'Elizabeth' goes down well with fans, and over 2 CDs you get a good sample of the band's 15 year career too.

Don't believe the Python song, DO go to Kamelot, things DO happen there.
