Fans tell me this song encompasses a ton of what they feel is part of the Kamelot trademark. We hope you all share in our joy for this release!”

Once Human Premiere “Sledgehammer” Music Video

Once Human have premiered a new video for their new song “Sledgehammer.” Guitarist Logan Mader (Machine Head) said the following:

“‘Sledgehammer‘ smashes from start to finish. With insane riffs, relentless drumming and Lauren Hart just kills it!!! Vocally showcasing totally new and powerful cleans in the massive chorus hook, it marks a new chapter in Once Human sound. I had tons of fun producing and mixing this track. Utilizing more analog gear than I normally do it’s really explosive. Our last album sounds good, but this one actually smokes it.”

Kamelot Premiere “MindFall Remedy” Video

Kamelot have premiered a new video for their song “MindFall Remedy.” The clip features special guest Lauren Hart (Once Human) and it includes live footage from the band’s recent North American tour. The track appears on their latest album “The Shadow Theory.”

Guitarist Thomas Youngblood said the following about the video:

“The North American tour was our biggest ever and we had to chronicle it in some way; the fans were so amazing. We decided to shoot this video and mix in scenes from the tour. We cannot wait to return to the U.S. and Canada for the next run!”

Vocalist Tommy Kaverik also added the following about the song:

“In this material world full of vanity and beautifying filters, it is easy to turn to those things when looking for validation and comfort. We have come to expect external gratification to lift us up, solve our insecurities and give us a meaningful existence. With this song we want to encourage people to look inside themselves for answers. Only then can we fully learn to respect and love ourselves and grow as people. There is a way to unlock your inhibitions, and only you possess the key.”

Once Human Stream Studio Version Of Their Cover Of Machine Head’s “Davidian”

Once Human, the band featuring former Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader, are streaming the studio version of their cover of Machine Head‘s “Davidian.“ The track was previously only available with the Japanese version of their latest album “Evolution.“ Mader commented:

“We had a lot of fun recording our cover of ‘Davidian‘. For me it was very nostalgic as an original performer and co-writer of the song. We released it on our last album but only as a bonus track for the Japanese market. After receiving many messages and seeing comments from fans outside of Japan wanting to hear the song, we decided to release it worldwide so anyone can stream it or buy it now. ‘Burn My Eyes‘ just turned 24 years old but the album still stands up as a memorable and influential album. This is our tribute to a great band and a timeless song.”

“I know it’s uncommon for a band who is not headlining to record a live album. We were able to pull it off because today’s technology and compact size of the necessary gear is a part of our everyday monitoring system. We had loads of fun on tour with DragonForce. I’m so glad we captured a nice piece of it to share with all our fans.”
