Siége Perilous is the third full-length album released by the power metal band Kamelot. It was released on August 4, 1998, through Noise Records. It is the first album with Roy Khan (ex-Conception) on vocals and Casey Grillo on drums, and also the last with the keyboard player David Pavlicko.

In Arthurian legend, the Siege Perilous, otherwise known as "The Seat Perilous", is the seat at The Round Table reserved for the knight who would quest for and return the Holy Grail.

Track listing[edit]

The track listing on the back cover of the CD is incorrect. "Rhydin" is track 6, while "Parting Visions" and "Once a Dream" are shifted down once each. The track listing shown here is the correct version, which is listed in the liner notes.

All songs written by Thomas Youngblood and Daniel Elliot, except where noted.

  1. "Providence" – 5:35
  2. "Millennium" – 5:15
  3. "King's Eyes" – 6:14
  4. "Expedition" – 5:41
  5. "Where I Reign" – 5:58
  6. "Rhydin" – 5:03
  7. "Parting Visions" – 3:34
  8. "Once a Dream" – 4:24
  9. "Irea" (Youngblood, Elliot, Roy Khan) – 4:32
  10. "Siege" (instrumental) (Youngblood) – 4:21

Japanese version bonus track

  1. "One Day" – 4:10

The Japanese bonus track was later included on 2007 compilation "Myths & Legends Of Kamelot".

The title of track 6 is a reference to the fantasy role playing world, RhyDin.
