Kamelot Bio

Band members
Thomas Youngblood - Guitar Khan - Vocals Glenn Barry - Bass Casey Grillo - Drums


Thomas Youngblood and drummer Richard Warner founded Kamelot in Tampa, Florida back in 1993.

In 1994 the band signed a deal with Noise Records, and the release of the debut Eternity followed in August of the next year. Press praised the album as one of most promising debuts of all time.

In 1996 the successor Dominion hit the stores, an opus that was even more diverse and varied than the debut.
Then in 1997, drummer Warner as well as singer Mark Vanderbilt had to be replaced. Kamelot found more than just mere replacements in Casey Grillo and former Conception singer Khan, who had already joined the band during the production of the third album Siege Perilous.

The new line-up undertook an extensive tour of Europe during the fall of the same year only to return to the 'Gate Studio` in Wolfsburg twelve months later to produce the fourth studio effort The Fourth Legacy.

The summer of 2000 brought the 'New Allegiance Tour` through Germany, Austria, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Greece and Spain during which the recordings for Kamelot's first live album The Expedition were made.

Only a few months later the band presented their fifth album entitled Karma, which took Khan, Youngblood, Grillo and Barry on yet another European tour.

Now, the new opus Epica follows seamlessly; here Kamelot combines all the fortes of the previous productions with new ideas and majestic sounds.
