KAMELOT Hard At Work On New Songs

July 26, 2006

KAMELOT guitarist Thomas Youngblood has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"Greetings from Wolfsburg, Germany! Home of Volkswagen, they are everywhere here. We are here working on the new songs for the upcoming album and follow-up to 'The Black Halo'. It is going very very well on the new songs. It's incredibly hot here in Germany at the moment, even hotter than Florida where I live. We are already planning tour dates for Europe again that we hope to announce very soon. It will likely be spring 2007 and we will unveil our biggest stage ever. I also have previewed some of the footage from the upcoming DVD and it looks really amazing. The artwork is nearly complete and our friend Mattias Norén in Sweden is working very hard on the whole booklet. As soon as we have an official release date you will hear it here first."

KAMELOT's first-ever DVD, "One Cold Winter's Night", was shot in Oslo this past February. "We have 18 cameras on this shoot and the concert was nearly two hours long," vocalist Khan had previously stated. The disc was edited by Patric Ulleaus (DIMMU BORGIR, LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES) and will include special guest appearances by Simone Simons (EPICA),Sascha Paeth and Snowy Shaw (ex-KING DIAMOND, DREAM EVIL),plus many others.

Also on the KAMELOT-related front, the first-ever KAMELOT anthology, "Lunar Sanctum", will be released by Sanctuary Records. It will feature some classics as well as unreleased live cuts from the band's last concerts in Tokyo.

KAMELOT will team up with EPICA for a North American tour beginning on September 19 in West Springfield, Virginia.
