Can't say I was impressed by Tommy in Seventh Wonder. Kamelot will definitely make a change musicially now.

Can't wait! I really like Seventh Wonder and think Tommy can step in to some, admittedly, gigantic shoes left by Roy Khan. Kamelot has definitely become more progressive sounding over their last 2 albums, but I still love their music. Concept albums have always been a favorite of mine as well, so this will definitely be on preorder.

I have hope, that this album will be something new and better, than previous.

A concept album could be a good thing. Epica and The Black Halo were great, not just lyrically but musically as well. Something tells me I shouldn't get my hopes too high, but let's wait, maybe I'll be surprised.

About Tommy, I think this is challenge for him considering the very unique Kamelot style that naturally demands someone unique on vocals. But he should manage.

That is such a Kamelot thing to do. Ooh look at us we have a concept album with an artsy name and artsy cover ooh. Which is good because I like Kamelot and dont want them to change too much.

I'm expecting to be let down by the new album. So I hope I'm wrong.

When a band has gained a following with a successful singer it is hard to fill their shoes. Iron Maiden and Judas Priest spring to mind. Lets hope Khan returns in a few years as well.
