This week’s offering is Kamelot’s Haven. Until yesterday, I had never heard of this band before and wasn’t sure what to expect from the metal classification. I just haven’t been able to keep up with the explosion of metal sub-genres (I recognized slightly less than half on that list). To be honest, if not for my brother, Nick, I probably wouldn’t have kept up at all on this musical genre – not because I disliked it, it’s just not something I could listen to while trying to work. Anyway, with Haven featuring multiple epic ballads and orchestral pieces (like the included video), it seems Kamelot fits into the power metal category.
If a secret war was waged between multiple dimensions, a war that pitted forces of light against dark, this is the music that would underscore that battle.
