A Faustian epic, as told through a progressive metal rock opera.

One of the best things about hoopla is being able to rediscover the music that meant so much to me in high school. Kamelot’s music was the first time I learned that I could combine my love of fantasy with my love of “melodic music that also has lots of drums and guitars”. This particular album is part one of an ambitious two-part rock opera based on Goethe’s Faust. Lead singer Roy Khan voices both main characters, Ariel/Faust and Mephisto, while guest singer Mari plays the part of Helena/Gretchen.
