Best Kamelot Songs

The Top Ten

1 March of Mephisto March of Mephisto

the first song by Kamelot I head. I immediately loved them, and this song continues to be my favorite. Purely awesome! Great structure, vocals, riffs, etc.

One of the darker songs by this band. Mephisto, (a demon sung by Shagrath) tries to seduce Ariel (a human man sung by Kahn) by tempting him with a woman who resembles Ariel's dead lover, and Ariel almost falls under his spell.

One of the best songs in the power (melodic prog ) metal scenes, great guitar performance, epic keyboards and Roy Khan's and shagrath's voices are very awesome!

A dark, powerful masterpiece. First song I heard from them - been captivated ever since!

2 The Haunting (Somewhere In Time) The Haunting (Somewhere In Time)

Simone and Khan are epic together. It's a pity that Simone seems more like a guest singer in this song (to be fair she is but I wished it was something along the vein of House on a Hill where she'd actually sing her own verses). Other than that minor gripe, the album version is amazing in its own right, but the live version on One Cold Winters Night takes that up a notch. A must listen and watch!

This song is simply amazing and addictive. Simones voice adds a special sounding to this song. The music is amazing as always, Kamelot at their best!

This song is purely awesome. The first song by Kamelot I head
Very good riff and the solo itself a great & great vocal pattern I ever head. Kamelot is one of my best band. Keep rocking kamelot.

This song is very emotional and yet, at the same time, very powerful. The rhythm of the electric guitars in this song back the amazing duet between a younger Simone Simmons and Roy Khan in his prime.

You gotta love some Kamelot!

5 Moonlight Moonlight

Beautiful atmospheric piano intro, which builds into an extremely groovy and catchy song - great performance by the whole band! - petrucci75hammet

This song has become my fourteenth all-time favorite song. - 906389

Another great song on The Black Halo!

Moonlight is a catchy Kamelot song that is heavily driven by vocals and interludes with woodwind intstruments. Give it a good listen, it seems to be underrated at the moment!

6 When the Lights Are Down When the Lights Are Down

How is this not a top 10? Between the fast paced guitar, the amazing bass line, and the kick ass catchy lyrics there is no way it should be in 14th. I am personally offended that this song is not higher up on the list.

Where's the love for this song?!?! It's their most rapid and instrumentally powerful song, it is awesome. This is where they earn their title as a power-metal band.

How is this not one of the top 10 is way beyond me! This should be one of the top 5 along with Karma!

This should be top 10

7 Forever Forever

The song's got a momenta, that only increases till the end. The guitar work is phenomenal so is the voice backing up the instruments. So much energetic and its like a Power Metal's Dream song. Should be far up!

I have to agree that the live version is amazing... After that am I the only who have noticed those breathtaking lyrics and feel them into my heart with the voice of the amazing Roy Khan

Ugh, its just an amazing song, the live version from cold winter's night is the reason this should be the top song on this list

It is the best song of Kamelot

8 Soul Society Soul Society

Some of the best vocals Roy ever produced for Kamelot. The strings and rifts are, simply put, epic. It has a very Iron Maiden feel to the song and that is a complement of the highest regard

Deep lyrics, Powerful Riffing and Strings, just an all around amazing song from the best power metal band.

I repeat this song daily, cause its magnificent & super song which can't be forgotten!

9 Sacrimony (Angel of Afterlife) Sacrimony (Angel of Afterlife)

This song is epic! How can it be this low? It deserves to be in the top five somewhere with Ghost opera and Karma, these songs kick a$$

I love this song! I believe this should shoot to the top of the list!

This song basically showed that Tommy Karevik is a great replacement for Roy Khan. Every single aspect of this song shows Kamelot in their top form, and pretty much shows that Tommy has brought new life to the band.

Everything is done perfectly here. Love listening to this song. Deserves more.

Damn, This is one the best songs of Kamelot. I don't know why this is at so bottom. Some people just want to watch the world burn!

AWESOME SONG, Simply love the vocals, and the Guitar so CHILL! Ahh. Every time I listen to the solo, it gives me the Chills.

The Newcomers

? Memento Mori Memento Mori

Pure gorgeousness. The only Kamelot song that gives me goosebumps, although Prodigal Son is getting there, too.

Memento Mori is not a song, It is a piece of art <3 The orchestration is beautifully done and it ends off the two album long Faust-Themed story in the greatest way possible... The vocals stand out amazingly and it is arranged superbly - my favorite bit is the duet part of Mephisto and Helena... Beautifully made

This song is the god of The Black Halo's history,
And The Black Halo is a piece of art.

Great keyboards, catchy vocals and beautiful piano and guitar solo in the middle!

Epic, as a reference of the title of the album. This song has everything, but I like most is that the inspiration is the Faust of Goethe

Oh yes have to agree this song and the entire album gets murdered everyday on my iPod followed by Black Halo. Karma etc

Definitely the best, great tune, just great.

The Contenders

11 Serenade Serenade

The happiest song from a concept album about loss and immorality.
It also has some hella good guitars and that classic line which conveys the whole theme of the albums:

"What does the winter bring, if not yet another spring."

12 The Human Stain The Human Stain

The lyrics to this song are amazing and deep! The music is also beautiful and haunting. One of their songs that has greatly impacted me.

13 Love You to Death Love You to Death

I liked pop songs. Then I listened to Kamelot's Love you to death. It literally changed my life. Thanks to it now I listen to pure music. I think it is simply perfect.

Although not my favorite, this song deserves a much higher position. The vocals are awesome, it has touching lyrics and the guitar solo speaks for itself.

This is one of the Better songs of Kamelot with great lyrics, vocals and composition... One of the most accessible songs of this band, instantly likable.

When I listened to this song for the first time, I thought maybe this is a good song. But after I read the lyrics and sing along with the song, my tears was shed, and I realized that this is one of their best song.
Love you to death, Kamelot.

14 Farewell Farewell
15 Abandoned Abandoned

This song is PHENOMENAL! The emotion, the articulation, the dynamic, and the passion. This song truly stirs and moves the soul. I never tire of listening to it.

This is one of the songs that listen to the loudest on my iPod, next to Numb, but I could never tire of this song equivalent of a Picasso.

Abandoned is a show of how great Khan is, he can sing great metal, but this isn't metal, and he sings it equally as well.

Very particular song, the melody is haunting.

Different enough to warrant a listen. Very good song.

The first song I heard of Kamelot and loved it

17 My Therapy
18 The Fourth Legacy The Fourth Legacy

This song was one of the few first songs I have ever heard from the power metal genre. The chorus is very emotional and easy to follow. Hard to misheard lyrics as well. Perhaps not the "best" song since they have many others good ones.

I think it should get the 1st spot this song is awesome... The symphonic music and the catchy power metal vocals... - nooreldeen

This song is the only true song. This song is a real metal song. It was a true love of mine. No, it is!

It's a powerful song. It is fast and it has an excellent solo.
