AMANDA SOMERVILLE Discusses Writing Story For KAMELOT's Silverthorn Album In New Interview
November 7, 2012, 4 years ago
Vocalist AMANDA SOMERVILLE (TRILLIUM, AVANTASIA), who has worked behind-the-scenes and recorded backing / guest vocals with KAMELOT since The Black Halo in 2005, recently discussed her role on the band's new album, Silverthorn. She was on board for Silverthorn as a backing/choir vocalist, and she wrote the story as it appears in the book included with the limited edition box set of the album.
“I also came up with the way the killings in the story start happening. It’s told from the ‘good brother’s’ perspective, and I thought it would be cool to make it so that it wasn’t quite clear if he really has a twin or if he’s schizophrenic. I mean, we never learn the good brother’s name. It leaves the question open as to whether it might be him doing all these weird things. I wanted it to be intriguing and suspenseful. The time limit and the page limit and the budget made it hard to get all the details in there, so I had to make do with writing the story over 10 pages.”
