May light embrace the darkest hour
Let it shine to orchestrate the shadows of the night!







KAMELOT are one of metal’s most unique, influential and prestigious acts that blends symphonic metal, prog, power metal and world music – so it comes as little surprise that the whole metal world is holding its breath in anticipation of The Shadow Theory! The band has already unveiled the first track "RavenLight" from their new masterpiece. Now it’s time to unleash the second opus "Phantom Divine (Shadow Empire)" with a phenomenal music video.


Thomas Youngblood on "Phantom Divine (Shadow Empire)":

"In the future our memories and thoughts will be extracted and transferred to synthetic AI. Our carbon based bodies will no longer be needed and eventually discarded. On Phantom Divine we explore this vision of a world where we are replaced by AI. Welcome to The Phantom Divine!"
