Behind-the-scenes and performance footage from KAMELOT‘s September 20 concert at Slim’s in San Francisco, California can be seen below.

KAMELOT keyboardist Oliver Palotai is sitting out the band’s North American tour so he can stay home with longtime girlfriend Simone Simons, (EPICA singer) as they await the birth of their first child. Filling in for him is Coen Janssen of EPICA.

KAMELOT‘s latest album, “Silverthorn”, sold 5,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 79 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “Poetry For The Poisoned”, opened with around 6,100 units in September 2010 to enter the chart at No. 74.

“Silverthorn” was released on October 30, 2012 in North America, October 26, 2012 in Germany and October 29, 2012 in the rest of Europe via Steamhammer/SPV. The CD marks the band’s first release with Tommy Karevik, the Swedish vocalist who previously fronted SEVENTH WONDER (a group that he is still a member of).

In a 2012 interview with Loudwire, KAMELOT guitarist Thomas Youngblood stated about what Karevik brings to the band: “I think when we knew we had to bring in a new person on vocals, we wanted the opportunity to grow the band, not just to maintain the band or survive. We wanted to look at this as an opportunity to make the band bigger, [and] I think with Tommy we can do that. Not only is he an exceptional singer, he’s a great songwriter and he’s way ahead of what I thought he would be in terms of being a frontman. People who come out to shows will see that this guy is a force to be reckoned with. I can’t imagine a better choice, honestly. In the beginning, when this whole thing started, we were a little unsure of what the future might be, but now we’re really excited about it.”

Quality fan-filmed video footage of SINISTER‘s September 7 performance at Patronaat in Haarlem, The Netherlands can be seen below.

SINISTER released its latest album, “The Carnage Ending”, in September 2012 via Massacre Records. The CD was once again recorded at Soundlodge studios in Rhauderfehn, Germany with producer Jörg Uken (GOD DETHRONED, OBSCENITY).

In a recent interview with Heavy Metal Artwork, SINISTER vocalist Adrie Kloosterwaard stated about the songwriting process for “The Carnage Ending”: “Before we started with creating new songs, Bastiaan [Brussaard, guitar] and me talked how the new songs had to sound. For sure, it had to sound like a mix from the old and new SINISTER. Bastiaan comes with a complete track to the practice room and there we make some small changes so that everybody is happy with it. I think at the end, we did a killer job, because it turned out the way we had in mind.”

Kloosterwaard also spoke about the cover artwork for “The Carnage Ending”, which was once again created by Mike Hrubovcak. “I come always with the ideas for the new cover and then Mike starts to work on this and send me every time previews so I can say or things have to be a bit different,” he said. “Most of the time he is also putting his own ideas in it, but that is no problem for me, because I know it will be only better. He will be also the man for the next SINISTER cover.”
