Kamelot Drummer Releases New Drum Cam Footage

Kamelot drummer and Pearl artist Casey Grillo has released some jaw-dropping drum cam footage from one of the many stops of Kamelot’s 2012 European Tour.  The footage, which can be found here, shows Casey playing the fan favorite Kamelot track, “Karma”, flawlessly displaying his precise footwork, crisp drum fills, and a few flashy stick twirls to spice up the showmanship of the Kamelot concert experience.  Casey’s European tour rig consists of Vision Birch (VB) drums, finished in Jet Black with matching Black hardware, and surrounded by a massive 2-tiered ICON Rack System.  To top it off, Casey turns to the 4-ply, all maple, shell of his 14x6.5 Dennis Chambers Signature snare drum which provides a powerful crack to cut through the overall mix on stage.  The full specs on Casey's European tour kit are as follow:

Vision VB: Jet Black w/ Black hardware

22x18- bass drum (x2)
10x8- rack tom
12x9- rack tom
14x14- floor tom
16x16- floor tom
14x6.5- Dennis Chambers Signature snare drum

Kamelot is currently touring in support of their 2012 release, Silverthorn, which hit the shelves in October of last year and launched a massive Rock Chart takeover throughout the world as well as receiving a highly positive reception throughout the music world.  Currently, the band is taking a much needed break after closing out the last several months of 2012 with a massive European headlining tour, a co-headlining tour throughout the US and Canada, as well as a few select dates in South America.  Due to the band’s extremely high demand, Casey and Kamelot will be hitting the road again shortly, so be sure to check up on their official website,, for news and updates.
