Yes please, more of this :)

I like that it combines the symphonic elements of Silverthorn with a more theatrical tone that we've seen in previous Kamelot albums (and with Seventh Wonder).

It sounds like Tommy's been given more scope now he's proven himself a worthy successor to Roy, which really shows off his range and depth.

I can't wait to hear the rest!

Looks like Assassin's Creed mixed with Batman and a splash of Deadpool on top. If this is ends up being a PS4 game I think I'll be getting myself a new console after Christmas.

"*Empire in Black and Gold* is a fantastic start to the series, and I am definitely going to do a catch-up read of the rest of his Shadows of the Apt series. Thoroughly enjoyable."
