Majestica sign to Nuclear Blast, debut album “Above The Sky” due this summer
Nuclear Blast has announced the signing of Swedish symphonic power metal act Majestica. Tommy Johansson is a well-known person, especially due to his role as guitar player of Sabaton. But before he joined the Swedish “war machine”, he was already busy playing in his own band named Reinxeed. 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 Sky” and a brand new name; Majestica. 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. People can expect real power metal in the vein of Helloween, Stratovarius and Gamma Ray, but also great symphonic parts with catchy melodies and choruses with a lot of choral arrangements, guitar solos, beautiful inflections and of course – high pitched vocals like Michael Kiske, Timo Kotipelto and Sebastian Bach.”
More details will be revealed very soon, stay tuned!
