Since many of you said that you liked Alestorm, I thought I would post this. American power metal group, Kamelot has announced dates for a North America tour. Guess who's opening for them? None other than Alestorm. (Along with Blackguard--Another pirate themed metal group-- and The Agonist, whom I've never heard of.)
Also, for those of you that are already familiar with Kamelot, I'm sure you know that their lead singer isn't doing any tours right now. (He might leave the band.) For those that AREN'T familiar with them, I'll write up a proper post for them tomorrow. In either case, however, Kamelot has been replacing their singer with various other power metal singers on tour. For their NA tour, Fabio, the lead singer from Rhapsody (of Fire) is performing with them. Which, while I love me some Kamelot, and I do really enjoy Rhapsody (of Fire), I don't know if that's really the best fit.
Here's a list of tour dates, as seen at their official website:
And to wrap up this post, I'll give you a little teaser of Kamelot, and also a sample of Fabio's voice.
Kamelot - March of Maphisto, from their album, The Black Halo
And here is The Mystic Prophecy of the Demon Knight by Rhapsody (of Fire). Yes, this is a LOOOONG song. Personally, it's one of my favorites though.
