KAMELOT: Preparing For A 'Monster Year'

KAMELOT are putting the finishing touches on their new album, tentatively entitled "The Black Halo". "This week we are heading to Morrisound Studios in Tampa to finish some vocals and special effects," KAMELOT guitarist Thomas Youngblood writes on the group's web site. "Mari will appear again as Helena, I will help engineer the sessions along with old KAMELOT producer Jim Morris.

"I will have the digital camera and video for the sessions.

"[Singer] Khan is still in Germany finishing lead vocals and choirs. He has been in Germany so long the people there think he has relocated to live there.

"I am getting ever so excited about touring again!!! ProgPower was just a teaser for us, we will have a new stage, backdrops and more for the new expedition across this planet. We have two exciting bands planned as support and opener. Diverse and very good live bands!

"So 2005 is shaping up for a monster year!!"

As previously reported, the follow-up to last year's "Epica" was produced by Sascha Paeth and Miro at Gate Studio in Germany and features guest appearances by Jens Johansson (STRATOVARIUS), Simone Simmons (EPICA) and others. Songtitles expected to appear on the album include "March of Mephisto", "When The Lights are Down", "Moonlight Falling", "The Black Halo", "Abandoned", "Master of the Game", "Soul Society", "Pride", "Nothing Ever Dies" and "Serenade". An early 2005 release is expected, to be followed by the Black Halo Over Europe Tour 2005 beginning in March/April.
