The legendary American/Norwegian Metal Masters KAMELOT are back with their ninth studio release, "Poetry For The Poisoned", their most diverse and complete album to date. Initially written in the remote woods of Norway, and with final songwriting sessions completed in Germany, the dynamic compositions of "Poetry For The Poisoned" take the listener on an emotional journey that touches both the mind and soul with its mix of Progressive elements, Modern Rock, dark arts and, of course, Power Metal!
"I think this album is by far our most diverse, fusing new ideas and elements along with the traditional KAMELOT sound and style that we have established over the years," states KAMELOT guitarist Thomas Youngblood. "It comes at a time where many people around the world are searching for something to grab on to spiritually, including myself. I recently lost my mother and to be honest it was very hard on me. So there are some melancholy moods reflected on this album."
"Poetry For The Poisoned" was recorded at Gate Studios in Wolfsburg, Germany with producers Sascha Paeth and Miro and features guest appearances by Simone Simons (EPICA), Gus G. (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIREWIND), Björn "Speed" Strid (SOILWORK) and Jon Oliva (SAVATAGE, JON OLIVA'S PAIN).
Available in three versions (Regular CD edition, Digipak CD with bonus DVD and 2LP gatefold vinyl edition), "Poetry For The Poisoned" has proven to be KAMELOT's longest and toughest production to date and will surely please their legions of fans as well as attract new believers into the realm of KAMELOT!
