About Kamelot

One of the most innovative and prestigious bands in modern symphonic metal, heavy icons KAMELOT present their most introspective, uplifting, vital release to date – their first full-length in five years, 2023’s aptly titled The Awakening.

Having reigned supreme with the release of internationally top-charting melodic metal pinnacles such as The Fourth Legacy (1999), The Black Halo (2005), Silverthorn (2012), Haven (2015, #1 US Hard Rock Albums), and most recently 2018’s acclaimed The Shadow Theory (#2 US Hard Music Albums), The Awakening enters the KAMELOTlegacy as their most massive and diverse offering yet – mixing symphonic, gothic, melodic, progressive and power metal styles while yielding some of the heaviest tracks in the band’s history.

On their 13th studio album, The Awakening, the band expressly invites listeners to discover “the power of one” within themselves as well. Exuding the impassioned songwriting, complex musicianship, and sophisticated production that’s always made KAMELOT a remarkable act, the LP offers a more diverse, uplifting, and introspective journey compared to bleaker predecessor The Shadow Theory. As such, The Awakening encourages its audience to, well, awaken not only to the grandeur of its genre(s), but to the greatness of life itself.

About Hammerfall

No matter how much everything changes in culture and the world at a large, heavy metal endures. It empowers. It engages. It engenders strength. It also outlasts fads. So does. Since forming in Gothenburg, Sweden during 1993, the quintet—Oscar Dronjak [guitar], Joacim Cans [vocals], Fredrik Larsson [bass], Pontus Norgen [guitar], and David Wallin [drums]—still storms the gates of heavy music’s pantheon and waves the genre’s flag higher and higher on every subsequent release. With multiple international number ones, gold certifications, sold out tours, and over 100 million streams and 100 million YouTube views by 2019, the group upholds this venerable legacy on its eleventh full-length and second record with Napalm Records, Dominion.

In true HammerFall fashion, every element becomes dangerously and dramatically amplified. The riffs hit harder. The rhythms thunder louder. The choruses soar closer to the clouds.

Welcome to Dominion.

“In a lot of ways, this album is classic HammerFall,” exclaims Oscar. “We didn’t set out to make a sequel to a previous album. Instead, it’s a mix of the strengths from all of our records and everything that has led us to this point. You’ll continue to be surprised the more you listen; it’s...

AD INFINITUM turns a new symphonic metal chapter!

In 2023, rising modern symphonic metal outfit AD INFINITUM reenter the scene with their
electrifying third studio album, Chapter III – Downfall, out March 31 via Napalm Records. AD
INFINITUM’s signature sound – consisting of punching, modern, even progressive riffs,
addictive symphonic nuances, hooky choruses and Melissa Bonny’s inimitably versatile vocal
skills – has positioned them for unstoppable ascension in the metal world, and is now
perfected with ease on Chapter III – Downfall. This next offering provides another wave of
proof of the band’s breakout success, which the energizing four-piece – consisting of Melissa
Bonny (vocals), Adrian Thessenvitz (guitars), Korbinian Benedict (bass) and Niklas Müller
(drums) – garnered almost immediately, with millions of video views and streams worldwide
since the release of their debut in 2020.

Chapter III – Downfall bewitches with an innovative sound full of soaring melodic splendor,
juxtaposed against brooding, dark, even gothic heaviness. Exploring concepts of Ancient
Egyptian history and mythology, AD INFINITUM melds a perfect balance of storytelling and
technically sophisticated songwriting, spreading their wings in both areas of production and
lyricism. Charging...
