Review: The Shadow Theory by Kamelot

The Shadow Theory is symphonic power metal band Kamelot’s twelfth album, a third with newest vocalist Tommy Karevik. This album follows the previous one in turning from the dark operatic tones the band used to be known for to a more power prog metal tone better suiting Tommy’s lighter vocals, though it still maintains its symphonic roots. This album takes a faster pace, with lyrics that are catchier, if perhaps a little simpler, than usual for the band. While the album is not technically a concept album, it has a strong futuristic cyber dystopia theme throughout.
