Kamelot to release ‘The Shadow Theory’ in April

Posted by on January 25, 2018

On April 6th, Kamelot’s new album The Shadow Theory will arrive via Napalm Records. It is a follow-up to 2015’s Haven and it will include the band’s traditional style as well as adding industrial elements. The forthcoming record will feature symbolic references on how the band feels about our present day reality. The Shadow Theory was produced by Sascha Paeth and mastered by Jacob Hansen.  

Founding member Thomas Youngblood commented:

“‘The Shadow Theory’ album is a psychological journey through the complexity of the human mind. We are subjected to stimuli constantly through media, technology, social experiments and AI. Can we still be social creatures in the near future? ‘The Shadow Theory’ is an album that is mixing many worlds, giving the listener an escape within our own realities. This album was written and recorded over the entire year and we are really proud of the song elements and diversity on ‘The Shadow Theory’.”
