  • Awesome Music - See their page.
  • Dreadful Musician - Seriously, if you think Vanderbilt is a good vocalist, you are either deaf or REALLY need to clean out your ears.
  • Growing the Beard - What happens when you replace your Geoff Tate wanna be "singer" with a classically trained opera style vocalist.
  • Europeans Love Kamelot - Though founded in Florida, they only have a strong underground following in North America while they're among the most popular power metal bands in Europe along side giants like Helloween or Nightwish.
  • Face of the Band - Khan, ironic considering that Thomas is as much a creative force behind the band and arguably more important that Khan.
  • Fanon Discontinuity - Some of the fandom like to pretend Dominion and Eternity don't exist.
  • Moment of Awesome:
  • Narm - Some of Khan's actions on stage.
  • Narm Charm - About the aforementioned.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The entirety of the video for "The Great Pandemonium". Highlights include: the tentacle thing in the background, the woman with the robotic claws growing out of her knee and slicing her thigh repeatedly, and Khan's baglady nails.
  • Older Than They Think - Only rising to prominence around the turn of the century when power metal came back to life on mainland Europe, many will no doubt be surprised to learn the band is over 20 years old.
  • So Bad It's Good - Once you're over the shock, Mark Vanderbilt's tortured caterwauling on the first two albums can be a source of guilty entertainment. Challenge yourself to listen to, for example, Eternity followed by the almightily wailed Black Tower, without cracking a smile at any point.
  • Tear Jerker:
    • "Don't You Cry," an acoustic ballad about Thomas Youngblood's father, who died before he was born, and "Hunter's Season" which is dedicated to Thomas's mother.
    • "Love You To Death", a song about a pair of young lovers. The girl is terminally ill.
    • "Wander" is told from the viewpoint of a drug-addicted man who has come to the realization that his relentless quest for the meaning of life has caused him to lose what was most important to him: his family and his lover. By the end of the song, the poor guy's downright suicidal, leading into "Descent of the Archangel," Epica's Villain Song.
  • Uncanny Valley: The cover of Poetry for the Poisoned.
  • What Do You Mean It Wasn't Made on Drugs? - The video for Rule the World is... surreal... to say the least.
