KAMELOT guitarist Thomas Youngblood has posted the following update on the songwriting sessions for the follow-up to this year's "Epica":
"I just got back from a whirlwind 3 weeks in Norway and Germany. We have written 5 new songs for the next KAMELOT follow-up to 'Epica'. Here are some working titles that may change on the album: 'March of Mephisto', 'Nothing Ever Dies' and 'Serenade'. The new songs range from HEAVY to fast and we worked on a new ballad. I also met with producers Sascha Paeth and Miro in Germany to talk about things and the guys from RHAPSODY were in the studio. Look forward to their next EPIC!! "
KAMELOT's forthcoming album will be their first for SPV/Steamhammer Records, with whom they signed a worldwide deal last spring. An early 2004 release is expected.
