All Music Guide - Greg Prato
As recently as the mid- to late '90s, it was pretty darn incomprehensible for a band to merge heavy metal with a symphony orchestra. But a decade later, the number of "symphonic metal" bands seemed to be growing by the day -- as the genre was being spearheaded by such acts as Kamelot (with most of symphonic metal bands hailing from Europe, Kamelot is an exception -- they're natives of Florida). On their eighth full-length overall, 2007's Ghost Opera, the band continues to merge tricky prog metal with swirling strings -- following a musical path not all that far removed from such "thinking man's metallists" as Queensrÿche and Dream Theater.
