Awesome Music / Kamelot

The Fourth Legacy
  • The title track, "The Fourth Legacy", is an ode to the past, present, and future of the band as well as being a perfect showcase for Roy Khan's soaring vocals.

  • The title song, "Karma", about a king's reflections on the value of his life, actions and legacy, and if he can truly escape the cycle if given another chance.
  • "Don't You Cry". Now that is how you write a ballad.
  • Just... "Temples of Gold". Admittedly it's more than a little reminiscent of Queensryche (not that that's a bad thing...), but it's one of their best ballads. Moving, borderline Tearjerker lyrics paired with an epic melody.

  • "Center of the Universe". Even though he didn't record it originally, this is also one of Tommy Karevik's favorite songs to sing.
  • The highly underrated "Wander" and "Descent of the Archangel" from Epica. Goes from heavy Tearjerker to one hell of a Villain Song and does it right!
  • "A Feast for the Vain", certainly. A grand, classical-sounding song with Khan's totally sexy Mephisto voice in it. "Drowned in ecstasy", indeed.
  • Here everyone, meet "III Ways to Epica".

The Black Halo
  • "Soul Society" - an amazing, soaring piece about the afterlife. The positively uncanny likeness of the song's lyrics to the premise of Bleach only sweetens the deal for fans of shonen anime and manga.
  • "Abandoned" has a beautiful piano and orchestral track and reflects Ariel's musings on his life since he left his lover.

Ghost Opera
  • "Love You To Death", the perfect balance between heartwarming and heartbreaking.
  • The title track, "Ghost Opera" is a truly epic song that works for both villain tributes and grand battles.

Poetry of the Poisoned
  • "If Tomorrow Came": So sexy, and a topic nearly everyone can identify with.
  • "Hunter's Season": anybody could find a way to relate to it, anybody.
  • "House On A Hill", fact: Simone + Roy equals AMAZING CHILLING SONG.
  • "Necropolis": sexy riff, dirty lyrics, dark implications, contrasting vocals and very very dark...
  • "Poetry for the Poisoned" from the album of the same name. If a specific part had too be mentioned, then "Part II: So Long". Or "All is Over", for its pure contrast and vocal melody.
  • "Once Upon A Time", rather emotional lyrics, but inspiring all the same.

  • "Sacrimony". Not only does Tommy do amazing on vocals, it also has the vocals of Alissa White-Gluz and Elize Ryd, as well as an epic instrumental.
  • "Prodigal Son", the climax of Silverthorn. Tommy Karevik really shines here, particularly in "Part I: The Funerale".
  • The bonus track, "Leaving too Soon". It is a highly underrated track, with a beautiful instrumental and Tommy absolutely shining in vocals.

  • "Liar Liar (Wasteland Monarchy)" on Haven. It has a great balance of powerful chorus, instrumentals and vocals, fitting for a song about ideals clashing and destruction. This song deserves extra awesome points for featuring Alissa White-Gluz's amazing (and underused) clean vocals.
