On The Road… with Kamelot and Dragonforce

US-2015Kamelot Dragonforce tour poster leg one

Fresh on the heels of their just released new album Haven (Napalm), Kamelot has embarked on a US tour with Dragonforce. This is the first of two legs of this joint bill the two bands will take part in this year and both bands seem evenly matched musically and with their respective fan bases. The first few shows of the tour have reportedly been packed affairs with both bands taking inspired turns at performing their challenging material. Haven, is one of the deepest and most diverse albums Kamelot has released in their career, and it showed in their choice of their new set list. While they are just starting their new album-tour cycle, Dragonforce is still out supporting last summer’s Maximum Overload album (Metal Blade). New front man Marc Hudson is now at home on stage and on record, and it shows. Captured at the Worcester Palladium by Nick Phelps of MasterPhelps Photography for Ghost Cult, you can see the bands put on quite the show.
