One of the leaders of American melodic metal returns with the re-release of their triumphant full length Ghost Opera , with an album-worth of additional live songs! After Kamelot hit their stride with their previous release, The Black Halo , fans responded enormously to the modern melodic metal masterpiece that is Ghost Opera . In addition to the unreleased tracks, the re-release includes a new cover by Mattias Noren, video footage, a booklet including Nocturnal Models for center spread, and an embossed collector s slipcover. Kamelot has become a true mark of quality and the re-release of Ghost Opera will impressively continue this grand tradition.

Ghost Opera: Second Coming Is Incredible

"Brilliant is the best word that comes to mind as I listen to the incredible second disc of Kamelot's Ghost Opera: the Second Coming. The mix of new Ghost Opera (what--no Rule the World) with the Black Halo Live CD is incredible. This band deserves much more exposure.
They sound so powerful live and with such clarity and depth.
They have grown to be my favorite band.
My CD came today as I ordered it three weeks ago from Amazon.
The studio songs of include Seasons' End (also available on The Myth and Legend of Kamelot), Pendulous Fall (found on the first edition of Ghost Opera and The Myth and Legend of Kamelot), Epilogue (also available on the Myth and Legend of Kamelot), and the Rule The World (remix) are the typical fair from Kamelot.
The Live portion of the second CD includes: Solitaire; Ghost Opera; The Human Stain (is this not the greatest Kamelot song or what???); Mourning Star; When The Lights Are Down; Abandoned (awesome--especially live); The Haunting (With Simone Simon--Love her); Momento Mori; Epilogue (as good as this song is in the studio--it is brilliant live and bridges the gap between the Black Halo and Ghost Opera material); and March of Mephisto.
Kamelot continues to find ways to reinvent themselves.
After playing Disc #2, I was overwhelmed.
The first disco includes all of Ghost Opera (a staple in the car and on the IPOD) and adds a few videos: Momento Mori (Live) and The Human Stain. The Ghost Opera video is on the first edition of Ghost Opera and the Rule The World Video is on the Kamelot Website or YouTube--whichever is your pleasure.
Buy the reissue CD of the Ghost Opera: The Second Coming and enjoy the bonus CD as Kamelot's gift to you.
Review is for the CD set only, not for the music

"Ok, I'm not sure why Kamelot decided to re-release this album. I think disk 2 of this set alone would have made for a good release but I don't think packaging it with Ghost Opera was necessary. On that note, let's start with disk 2 (Live from Belgrade). Good song selection but its definetly missing a few. I went to the Ghost Opera tour and the song selection they had there was awesome, I just hope they had included a lot more songs here (at least more songs that were not included in the Cold Winter's Night Live CD). It also includes 3 new studio songs. Pendulous Fall is about the only one that stands out. Rule the World - Remix is HORRIBLE!! WHY KAMELOT??? Why did you choose to really destroy this song? Only if you like pop music will you like this song (I hope this is not the future of Kamelot).
Now, if you're a fan of Kamelot and don't have the first Ghost Opera edition album then definetly get this one. Disk 1 itself is definetly a 5 Star album, about as good as Kamelot gets."
