KAMELOT’s TOMMY KAREVIK Explains ‘Haven’ Lyrical Concept

Metal-Impact.com recently conducted an interview with KAMELOT singer Tommy Karevik in Paris, France.

Speaking about the lyrical concept of KAMELOT‘s new album, “Haven“, Karevik said: “It’s not the same kind of thing like [2012’s] ‘Silverthorn‘ was; it’s not like a chronological thing, from A to B, with characters and stories and stuff like that. It’s more a thematic thing this time. It’s more… We wanted to portray this world that we’re living in and how fast… it starts spinning faster and faster, with all this social media. People’s expectations are just getting higher and higher — lifestyle, being up to date with everything, being entitled to everything in the world. Everyone feels entitled to have ten TVs, travel the world seven times… careers… It’s just spinning faster and faster.”

He continued: “What I see is that we’re getting more and more egoistic, to a point where something bad’s gonna happen. And this album, we try to portray this dark place, where we just take what we want all the time. But the most important thing is that it’s only this dark place. There’s always hope, there’s always something lighter, something brighter at the end of the tunnel that you want people to know, to feel that we can change this situation; together we can make it. In this darkness, somewhere in this darkness, there is a hope. The whole album is like a journey, I think — very different moods: dark, uplifting, sweet, melancholic all the time. Even in the same song, there are different moods.”

Produced by Sascha Paeth and mastered by Jacob Hansen, “Haven” is a massive album that is sure to please critics and fans alike.

Guest musicians on the CD include Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY), Troy Donockley (NIGHTWISH) and Charlotte Wessels (DELAIN).
