As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, the Swedish symphonic power metal band Majestica (featuring Sabaton guitarist Tommy Johansson) will release their debut album “Above The  Sky” through Nuclear Blast on June 7, 2019.

“Night Call Girl” is the second single from the upcoming album.

Tommy states, “‘Night Call Girl’ is a huge tribute to the 80’s metal we grew up with. It’s a mix between Gary Moore, Rick Springfield, Europe and Journey. The lyrics are all about the classical catch phrases they used in those days and it has one of the best “sing along” choruses on the album. Power metal doesn’t go far away from 80’s metal so that’s why we felt that this tribute to our 80’s hair metal heroes fits great on »Above The Sky«.”

Watch and listen to the second single ‘Night Call Girl’ here:

Tommy Johansson is a well-known person, especially due to his role as guitar player of heavy metallers Sabaton. But before he joined the Swedish “war machine”, he was already busy playing in his own band named Reinxeed, currently completed by bassist Chris David and guitarist Alex Oriz. Of course, his touring acitivities with Sabaton slowed down the creative process for Reinxeed a bit. The group has now returned – seemingly out of nowhere – with a new 10-track album entitled »Above The SkyY« and a brand new name, Majestica, to top it off! On the new record, Tommy presents not only his guitar skills but also his vocal abilities once again, which he also showcased as Twilight Force’s stand-in singer throughout autumn 2017.

Tommy states, “It’s been many years since we last released an album, so we decided to ‘start over’ as a new band, Majestica, instead. It’s not only a majestic and epic name for a power metal band from Sweden, it’s also a tribute to the album »Majestic« that we released with Reinxeed in 2010. We came up with it and it sounded great, it felt perfect for this kind of music and just feels right.”

Not only their band name has changed, the quartet is also a trio at the moment. But fans don’t have to worry: Majestica bagged no less than Uli Kusch (ex-Helloween) for the drum recordings of their debut album.

Tommy comments, “It was a huge honour and his drums make this album sound more alive than any album I’ve ever recorded with any other band before. Since many songs are inspired by Helloween and Gamma Ray it just felt right to have his drumming and input on the songs.”
