Good news, everyone!
Power metal band extraordinaire Kamelot have unveiled that their new lead singer is Tommy Karevik, who is also the front man for progressive metal band Seventh Wonder (he's the dude in the centre of the above picture).
I was introduced to Seventh Wonder by our Ninja Captain Alex in his first A-Z post of this year. They immediately blew me away with their concept, visuals and Karevik's vocals. That man can sing! A lot of thanks to Alex for introducing me to Karevik's voice in time for this awesome change.
Kamelot have been without a singer for over a year after their previous front man Roy Khan left the band for medical reasons. They've performed with a bunch of guest vocalists while on tour, but now that Karevik is the official lead singer they can start a new chapter. They've a new album coming out in September, and a World tour that comes to London in November (whoo!)
So the singer for my favourite newly discovered band is now the lead singer for my favourite all time metal band. This is going to be epic. You can read the official press release and a few words from Tommy.
Below is a track from the album Mercy Falls by Seventh Wonder so you can get a feel for Tommy's vocals. He'll make a perfect addition to the Kamelot family.
Any good news where you are that you want to share?
