PiercingMetal Thoughts: Okay so here’s what I am trying to do with this kind of post. I figured that with our reviewing so many concerts here on PiercingMetal.com that it might be a good idea to also discuss the tours of some of our favorite bands when they get announced. I figure this will fire up the masses and spark some of them to try something that they might have otherwise avoided. You might not remember this since it was years ago, but I first braved a Kamelot show without knowing a single thing about them or their music. Since that time, they have become one of my very favorite groups of the Power Metal genre. Being a Metal fan is about taking a chance every once in a while so let my own circumstance be your guide. The other good thing about these posts is that in WordPress you readers can offer up a topical comment if you have one. So how about you take a moment and let me know what you think about this particular tour and especially if you are already a Kamelot diehard who can help convince those uneducated about them in our readership.
