Best Kamelot Songs

The Top Ten

1 Center of the Universe

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.

2 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!

3 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.

Great song

4 Karma

First song I ever heard of them, I loved it the very first seconds, great intro! Love the band since then...

Lyrics - wonderful, great guitars!

Karma is an absolute classic when it comes to power metal.

This Song Is Amazing And My Favorite Song.
I'm Not a Kamelot's Huge Fun But I Love This Song

5 Ghost Opera

I think this is their best song, You can hear the arrangment in this one much better than in any of the others

By far, best from Kamelot. Never get tired of listening.

6 Memento Mori

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

In my humble opinion this is their best song. It's long,epic, with haunting melodies and lyrics. 10/10

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 just has it all!
The magical voice of Roy, the phenomenal lyrics, the dark sound with catchy up tempo parts... Just one of the best songs they ever made!

7 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

8 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

This song will never get old. Never. It's really hard to pick a specific song though, since kamelot doesn't write bad songs

9 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.

So perfect and addictive! Tommy shows of that golden voice of his and shows that he is the perfect person for the job as Kamelots new vocalist.

10 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!

One of the best songs

The Contenders

11 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

I love this arrangement

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!

12 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!

Flying like an eagle from oblivioon

13 Wings of Despair

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.

14 The Black Halo
15 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.

Amazing music, great lyrics.

16 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."

17 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.

18 Farewell
19 The Shadow of Uther
20 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.

21 Lunar Sanctum

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

22 My Therapy
23 Rule the World

When I heard this song I was blown! Really powerful song! Listen and enjoy!

24 Poetry for the Poisoned
25 Nothing Ever Dies
26 Liar Liar (Wasteland Monarchy)

One of the best songs ever made. Every single part of this song is pure gold

27 Nights of Arabia
28 A Sailorman's Hymn

Melody at its best... One of the best kamelot songs of all time..!

A beautiful song. the music is really touchful

29 Silverthorn
30 Across the Highlands

I'm not a fan of kamelot but come on.
How can this one be the last one on the list
One of two songs that actually like from kamelot.
(Fourth legacy is the other one)

I just don't see how it is the last one on the list.

31 Insomnia

The chorus of this song has to be one of the best I've ever heard. It's my favorite off the newest album.

32 Torn

Kamelot have a lot of fantastic songs; choosing one will always be a difficult task, so I am choosing a song I think deserves to advance on this list.

"Torn" is my favourite song from their most recent effort, "Silverthorn". It has all the hallmarks of a kickass Kamelot song. Tommy Karevick really proves he was the best choice to replace Roy as lead, both on this song and all throughout the album.

33 Under Grey Skies

This makes me cry for some reason but its one of my favorites

Just amazing! Longing to see it live once...
Perfect symbiosis of nice arrangements, a perfect voice and a feeling like being right in the middle of an epic Kamelot-concert.

36 Liar Liar

Definitely one of the better songs on the album, (which is a great album! )

37 My Confession

My Confession should be first. It is the best song of Kamelot. But it is my oppinion - tilasmake

38 Descent of the Archangel
39 The Zodiac
40 Lost and Damned

This one is just perfect in everyways.

41 Until Kingdom Come

Easily one of their best. My personal favorite

42 Solitaire

Can't believe this song isn't even on this list. It's their first song I head and the one I loved the most. Should be in the top 10.

43 Wander
44 Citizen Zero
45 Elizabeth

I have to agree with the others about being surprised. I'm a huge fan and love almost the entire discography but Elizabeth is one of a few especially standout songs. Incredible historically-based work of art; in all aspects it's about as well-done as it could possibly be, but the real point is it best showcases Kamelot as a whole so if I were to play one song for someone who doesn't know the band this would be it.

I'm shocked this isn't higher. The three songs individually hold their own, but when listened to together as they are supposed to be, the progression, story and emotion behind this song is one of the greatest works of art I've ever heard. This should be blowing Rule the World and A Sailorman's Hymn out of the water - it should at least be in the top 10.

One of their best songs. Perfect vocal, music and it's long. Should be in top 10 at least.

The Elizabeth Trilogy is just what I call perfection. This should be the No1 song in the list and I'm really surprised it's not. The effort and feeling the band put into this trilogy' chapters (both lyrical and musical) managing to suck you into a trip in Elizabeth's story as her mental stages change is just out of this world.

46 III Ways to Epica

"I am defected from God, So low redemption's too far. She's the one that I love, and she tore me apart..." Just this four lines hits like a ton of bricks... This song deserves better in this list.

47 Necropolis

Purely Amazing, I can't believe this is not up there with the top ten together with Edge Of Paradise!

48 Veritas

The best composers/singers/bands try to experiment and push the boundaries of their music. I felt that this is Kamelot trying to push theirs and I say, its unique, chilling, and damn refreshing. I'd like to have them make many more of this type of music.

There's still some pretty cool songs on their lastest album, this one is definitely one of those.

49 Prodigal Son

Probably one or the better songs i�'ve head in a while, fell in love with it instantly. Its long, epic, beautiful, and pure awesome. He sings from his soul. I admit its not the typical "kamelot song" but its definitely good, I love Kamelot and all of their song but this stands out the most.

If you close your eyes to this one I guarantee it will be a transcendental experience.

What? How can this song be so low, 38? Ok, it's always be a difficult task to vote the best song from a band that actually have no single bad song, but this song should deserve a better rating than this, vote for it, please... !

50 Anthem

Anthem is the best song ever recorded. It was acctually written by Khan for his baby. "But I do know this, ill be the best I can". Come on! These lyrics are simply moving, Kamelot's peak in their musical career. I guess there will never be a song like this, with its sensibility and passion. I can only think of "Abandoned" as only rival, but "Anthem" is even better than that. I always cry when I listen to this little piece of heaven.
