Releases Brand New Video For Under Grey Skies
- Featuring Charlotte Wessels Of Delain!
With their latest opus Haven, released in 2015 on Napalm Records, symphonic metal masters KAMELOT set new heights with their epic and highly emotional trademark sound: This album became the soundtrack for an unforgettable and monumental silver screen experience delivering dark melancholy, aggressive metal and soul-soothing melodies! Produced by Sascha Paeth, illustrious guests such as Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Troy Donockley (Nightwish) and Charlotte Wessels (Delain) gave Haven some extra magic!
The band have now unveiled a brand new video for the track 'Under Grey Skies', featuring DELAIN's Charlotte Wessels!
Watch it here!
KAMELOT vocalist Tommy Karevik states: "One of my favourite songs from Haven. About the importance of never giving up on yourself or the people around and that you can always make a difference in someone else's life. Sometimes by just believing in them or simply listening to what they have to say. It was very nice singing with Charlotte and her voice fits the song perfectly."
"I absolutely adore songs like Under Grey Skies that inspire hope and optimism in the darkest of times. I was proud to be part of the track and even more thrilled that there's a video for the song to share now as well. Add to that the fact that Kamelot and Delain will share the stage again in the US this spring and I'd say there's plenty of things to get excited about!" adds Charlotte Wessels (Delain).

30 years of constant musical evolution.
Over 100 original songs composed and recorded.
Nearly 1000 concerts given around the globe.
Watch SAMAEL perform "Rite of Renewal" live in Lausanne's Les Docks HERE!
SAMAEL resurrected black metal in the early 1990s with the landmark debut "Worship Him", introduced symphonic black metal in 1994 with the classic "Ceremony of Opposites" and pioneered industrial metal with "Passage" in 1996. They released multiple critically acclaimed albums like "Reign Of Light", "Solar Soul", and "Above" during the Millennial years, ended with "Lux Mundi" in 2011. After a break of six years, SAMAEL came back with a big bang, only to prove they are still way too relevant nowadays to be called "just another band from the past". Their latest output "Hegemony" was released on October 13, 2017 and hit the charts all over Europe!
This past Fall the band played a couple of select shows around the release of their new album, one of them in the picturesque town of Lausanne in their home country Switzerland, surrounded by die-hard-fans, family, and friends! They captured that very special night with a live performance video of one of their newest songs "Rite of Renewal"!
SAMAEL about the video:
"This is the first song from 'Hegemony' that we presented live and it became an instant classic. The video was shot in 'Les Docks' in Lausanne during the first show that followed the release of 'Hegemony', it was latter edited by Sergey Ulyanov who previously worked on other visuals for us. The song itself is a mid/up tempo track that shows a more technical side of our music. The dynamic is kept by altering fast and dense parts with open and heavy ones until the grand final with super heavy riffs and apocalyptic keyboard parts. What better title for a song than «Rite of Renewal» to start a new year? 2018 here we go!"

Ireland! Shamrocks, shenanigans, sheep and pubs are some of the many highlights the Emerald Isle has to offer – that's what Hungarian punk rockers PADDY AND THE RATS rightfully realized and quickly whipped out their fiddles and plugged in their guitars. The Miskolc-based six piece brooded over a couple of cold beers and rum casks, and decided to throw a hefty dose of pirate-isms, polka and gypsy punk into their mix! Now PADDY AND THE RATS unveil first and hotly anticipated details about their fifth record titled 'Riot City Outlaws', which is set to be released on April 6th 2018 with Napalm Records!
'Riot City Outlaws' is a bold step into a bright future boosted by the raw and powerful production by Grammy winner Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Megadeth, Social Distortion, Pennywise). Both Cameron and singer Paddy O`Reilly opted for a cool pop-punk approach in the vein of Green Day – overflowing with catchy choruses and dynamic up-tempo songs. Pirate party anthems meet shanties about the darker side of life on the Seven Seas. Tipsy ballads and a healthy infusion of Irish influenced punk rock songs round off a grimy pirate party bringing unwashed pub glory straight to your merry home!
Vocalist Paddy comments: "I think this album is the best what we have written so far and I'm really happy that we have the chance now to show this to the people as part of Napalm. We have great festivals for the summer all across Europe and waiting for the big partys what we'll have with the new songs! I'm really excited of this year!”
The track list will read as follows:
2. Join The Riot
3. Black Sails
4. The Way We Wanna Go
5. Sail Away
8. One Last Ale
9. Where Red Paints The Ocean
10. Another Life
11. Bound By Blood
12. I Won't Drink Again
13. Children Of The Night

15. Summer Girls (Bonus Track)
