No clue. Although, as a Christian myself, I have to admit I love seeing fellow metalheads get saved. Not that I want them to give up metal, though. They can still rock for the Rock.  :biggrin:  :metal:

I think I know who it is but I don't want to give it away for everyone else.  Ironically I just heard a story today about a former lead singer who put out a gospel CD and recently got into some legal trouble.  If it is who I think it is, he has a history of being a tool.  I will PM my answer.

Cerebral Eulogy is correct. It is indeed Roy Khan.

Well, how 'bout that. I remember reading his announcement when he left Kamelot, where he said, "God is always there." Glad to see he's still singing, albeit in a much different environment. I'll bet he sounds amazing singing hymns. The congregation probably think they're hearing a little bit of heaven on earth.

The shaved head is unexpected. Unless he was wearing a rug, I thought he had a full head of hair. Speaking as a dude who's not bald by choice, I'm always curious why guys shave when they don't have to. Oh, well...

I hope he does a Gospel CD. I would droll hearing him do some of the most beloved hymns out there. He's my all time favorite singer and has the most amazing voice out there.

Neal Morse is a perfect example of how you can transfer into faith-based music and still maintain that musical sound you were known for. While not the most religious person at all, I listen to his Christian rock a lot. I would certainly give Khan a shot if he assembled a symphonic-type band in the vein of what he did with Kamalot and put is new religious muse to work in that element.

I'm devastated right now!!! I knew right away that was Kahn!!!! Always held out hope he would turn up in a new band, maybe even a Christian metal band!!

WOW! I'm a HUGE Kamelot fan. I have all their CDs and saw Roy Khan in concert and I did not recognise him until I saw someone post his name :/

To be honest, I never really expected to hear him again, but seeing this makes me quite sad really :(

I shall remember him in his awesome coat rocking out!

He's changed his appearance so much, it' almost like he doesn't want to be recognized anymore.

Maybe he doesn't. I don't know much about Khan, but it wouldn't surprise me if he was trying to get away from the whole lifestyle. Not unheard of, especially when someone has a spiritual conversion in their life.

Please tell me this is some weird joke??  Khan is one of my favorite singers.  And not just the singing... The entire look and persona he had with Kamelot.

Not happy!!

 :o  I'm really confused by these reactions.  Can somebody explain why you feel this way?  I'm not trying to troll, I just legitimately don't get why this reaction to that photo makes sense.

I think they're just shocked because he used to look like this:

I can see why people would be upset, but at least he's doing what makes him happy. I'm not into preachy, religious stuff, but it's his thing, and if it makes him feel like a better person, go crazy.  :metal:

Neal Morse is a perfect example of how you can transfer into faith-based music and still maintain that musical sound you were known for.

And before him, Kerry Livgren with his post-Kansas band A.D.

Interestingly, Khan's pre-Kamelot band Conception had a dedicated satanist in its line-up.
