Now there's some prog metal I can get behind. That sounds really good, and certainly way better than what Tommy does to afford being in Seventh Wonder.

You and I practically never agree, but I couldn't agree with you more on that last part. :lol:

This is in no way a dig at Kamelot, because I've said all I've said on that score...but this is the Tommy that I want to hear - full of passion, individuality and lending his killer pipes to some excellent, intelligent and melodic prog. No-one sounds quite like SW and that's the biggest accolade I can give right now. I'll add my voice to the 'I can't wait' chorus!!

I thought "Victorious" was a sub-par song for these guys, but the new single "Tiara's Song" is really good. Reminds me of the "Waiting in the Wings" happy prog style ..

The new one is good too, but I hope there's some different playing on it than that style where the riffs are most interesting for the math of the time signature.

*** I wasn't referring to Tiara's song ... I was referring to Claus' comment that it reminds him of Happy Prog. I do not like Happy Prog - thus I'm a grumpy old man..... :P

Love Tierra! Reminds of Waiting in the Wings. This record can’t come soon enough.

The guitar / bass break is sweet!

Problem is that Seventh Wonder doesn't do "dramatic prog" as well as they do "happy prog" in my opinion! So with that in mind, I prefer their happy prog. If you feel that they are better at dramatic stuff, then I understand your opinion. Obviously I think you're wrong, but that's nothing new HAHAHAHA

Don't get me wrong - I love "Mercy Falls". I just think "Waiting in the Wings" is the better album.

Years ago this young band showed up at my apartment, they played me the demos of their new songs, with their new singer - this was Seventh Wonder right after Tommy had joined them. I signed them that day. "Waiting in the Wings" and that "happy prog" style blew me away back then, and still does. This new song is incredible.

I think happy prog is their thing. The music in general has an uplifting vibe. At least for me. Yet, they are so damn catchy that the complexity of it could sneak by unnoticed by the average listener.

However, many of those happy sounding songs, have a dark story to tell. Even on WitW.

Mercy Falls is a bit of an exception to most of their other material in being darker sounding record musically. Of course concept story is dark as well.

Personally they are one of my very favorite bands, and can do no wrong for me. I love all stuff with TK and have a hard time picking a favorite honestly.

Agree here in terms of Tommy's vocal style. I assumed this is Tommy's vocal style that he was going to bring to Kamelot.
That is what Roy did when he got in Kamelot. It is not just the sound of the voice, The music and especially vocal melodies Kamelot sounded more like Conception since ROy joined Kamelot , than pre Roy Kamelot. The sound of Kamelot is still Roy's Kamlot.
I thought Tommy could evolve Kamelot if he had brought his own vocals instead of singing like Roy's Kemlot.

I agree and couldn’t have said this better. As I said, it’s karaoke Khan. Tommy is one of my very favorite singers, but he just can’t be himself here. :(
