The pinnacle and highpoint of Kamelot
By Valia Corsi
I discovered The Black Halo 6 months ago when I was searching for highly acclaimed power/symphonic metal albums and this album was in the top 5 of most lists. And I have to say, I am addicted to early Kamelot, their 2000 albums from Karma, Epica, and The Black Halo are all so unique and different in terms sound yet its all metal. The Black Halo, for me, is the pinnacle of Kamelot. Continuing the story of Goethe Fuast, this one captures the second part of the story so well. Each song has a purpose, each song flows into the next with ease, they took Epica and refined it even more into this masterpiece. Unfortunately however, with the latest Kamelot albums nothing has not even come close to dethroning this sublime album. And I honestly don't think they will ever surpass this.
