* HeartbeatSoundtrack: ''Love You To Death'' uses this.
* HomoeroticSubtext: Some of Mephisto's lines, especially in ''Descent of the Archangel'', just simply ooze this trope.
* HorribleHistoryMetal: A lot of examples all across their discography, including ''The Inquisitor'' (about the [[BurnTheWitch Witch Hunts]]), ''Glory'' (about UsefulNotes/TheCrusades), the ''Elizabeth'' trilogy (about Main/ElizabethBathory - even though they take more of a [[HeavyMithril fantasy]] approach to the story), and ''Blücher'' (about the [[SinkingShipScenario sinking of the eponymous German battle ship]] on the borders of Norway during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII).

* LightIsNotGood: [[WellIntentionedExtremist The]] [[VillainSong Inquisitor]] is a textbook example. The chorus alone spells it out rather clearly. Mephisto also appears to Ariel with 'Angel Wings, in White' in ''Descent of the Arcangel.''

* ConceptAlbum - A notable theme with Kamelot. ''Epica'', ''The Black Halo'' (based heavily on ''Faust''), and ''Silverthorn'' are all full concept albums, and ''Karma'' and ''Poetry For The Poisoned'' both have concepts built into part of their song lists.
* CoverVersion - [[Music/NickCave "Where The Wild Roses Grow"]] as a bonus on ''Poetry For the Poisoned''.
* DarkerAndEdgier - ''Poetry for the Poisoned'' traded in the band's usual progressive/power metal style for a more goth-influenced sound. Reception was... mixed. The following album, ''Silverthorn'', featured a new vocalist and a return to their previous form.

* LyricalDissonance - "Lost and Damned" is a fast paced, epic song... about Ariel, the protagonist of ''Epica'' and ''The Black Halo'' deciding to leave Helena, his lover, to continue his pointless search for the meaning of life. What makes things worse is that this leads directly to Helena throwing herself and their unborn child into a river.

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute - Continuing from ''Epica'', protagonist Ariel is still stricken with grief and sorrow over his lover Helena's death. With Ariel's will nearly under Mephisto's total control, the fallen angel brings Ariel a beautiful young woman named Marguerite, who looks and speaks just like Helena. Ariel seduces Marguerite and the two sleep together, which completes Mephisto's manipulation of Ariel ("When the Lights are Down").
