ABOVE THE SKY IS IN STORES NOW!
Swedish symphonic power metallers MAJESTICA, formerly known as REINXEED, release their debut album Above The Sky today via Nuclear Blast. To celebrate, the trio fronted by SABATON guitarist Tommy Johansson, has unleashed the official video for the album's title track. Watch and listen to the fast-paced anthem, 'Above The Sky', over on YouTube
Tommy states, "After working for almost 5 years on this album, we're so happy to announce that it's finally released now on Friday, the 7th of June. We have been waiting a long time to show this album to you all! The music video for 'Above The Sky' was filmed, directed and edited by Ronny Hemlin. We've been working with him on previous REINXEED videos so it felt like the right choice to contact him again. The video takes place on an airport in Southern Sweden, where no green screen was needed to create such cool video."

Tommy Johansson is a well-known name, given his role as guitar player in SABATON. But before he joined the Swedish war machine, he had his own band REINXEED. His touring acitivities with SABATON slowed down the creative process for REINXEED but 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. The new album sees Tommy taking on vocal duties, something he last showcased as TWILIGHT FORCE's stand-in singer throughout autumn of 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."
The new band name is not the only change the guys have made as the quartet is now a trio. Previous fans of the band need not worry though as MAJESTICA bagged no less than Uli Kusch (ex-HELLOWEEN) to record drums on 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."
