Roy Khan leaves Kamelot: Kosmo = Sad

Post by Kosmo » Fri Apr 22, 2011 12:21 pm

For some time now there has been talk of Khan leaving Kamelot, and now it's official. Apparently he decided to leave last autumn but Thomas asked him to think it over but he stuck with the decision.

http://www.myspace.com/roykhanofficial/blog

What i gather from all of this is that he found other things more important than music, in this case it was God and religion. I'm sure Thomas and others will start looking for a new singer after the tour, hopefully they find someone good.

I'm very sad to hear he found God and religion. :cry:

Well I guess that makes him an anti-anti-Christ of some sort.

As an old Kamelot-fan I'm sad to see him go, but I didn't like their last two albums that much, so perhaps this might be end up being the best for everyone. :)

Maybe he could now form a new band... He could call it Inception.

You know, all these bands splitting. Shit. What's wrong with these guys?
I wonder if the last albums had any to do with his real decision. They were not really "kamelot-style" metal, but way more gothic and not as good as the old stuff. Well, there's one good thing we can get from this...

Kamelot without Khan will still probably be a good band.
And whatever band Khan gets into will get much better, so we fans get double the goodness!

That sucks. But well, if he thought about it for so long, maybe it is the right choice.

Well, this was obvious since began the rumors about the Roy's new religion and we have to add the other part, Roy wouldn't continue with Kamelot 'cause he's sick yet (He needs peace like any human being) and maybe a little try could do the same thing like Stratovarius and TT but after all the fans have to trust on Thomas Youngblood and his intuition with the talent people like he did with Roy years ago.

I always loved them, though I do admit I like their early 00's period.

However I am still looking forward to hearing the new singer

I think big part of the succes of that band was, khan charisma and voice, now that he is gone, Kamelot is on a big risk of become "just another band"

They were smart enough to pick Khan, let's just hope they have a knack for getting good singers

Khan for me is the "VOICE" of Kamelot. Now, he's gone because of Catholicism. Damn Shame.... :?

We will either have to pick whether to move on and accept the new guy or we end our Kamelot legacy here and say "it's been fun guys"

Either way that's the juncture we are at
