MAJESTICA announce new album, A Chrismas Carol.

Svenske Majestica, med Tommy Johansson i spissen, har annonsert sitt første julealbum, A Christmas Carol.

In 2020 Majestica are back with not only a new album, but a special treat for their fans: a Christmas musical power metal album entitled “A Christmas Carol”. It’s pure symphonic power metal in the true MAJESTICA spirit. The pre-sale of the album will ‪start on October 23rd‬, along with the release of their first single.

Majestica – A Christmas Carol

Albumet vil inneholde de mest kjente julesangene og er basert på historien til karakteren Ebenezer Scrooge fra Charles Dickens-klassikeren En julefortelling. Med ulike stemmer til alle karakterene kan det bety at albumet også vil by på flere gjestevokalister.

What makes this a unique Christmas album is not just the inclusion of plenty of well‐known Christmas songs, but also because the theme is the well‐known story of Ebenezer Scrooge from the Charles Dickens novel “A Christmas Carol”. With many different voices for the many characters in the story alongside fitting music, people will not only hear a newly well‐written power metal album, but also a power metal musical that gives you a unique Christmas feeling.

Tommy Johansson sier følgende om albumet:

A silly dream of mine has finally come true. For many years I’ve wanted to release a Christmas album, because the atmosphere around Christmas is always so peaceful and music with a clear Christmas theme is always beautiful and very well‐written. The reason why we chose to make a musical album with the story of Ebenezer Scrooge is very simple – it’s a great story to tell around Christmas and it works so well as a musical. And with the help of different voice actors and singers we made it possible for this to happen – we’re very happy with the result. Once again people can expect real power metal, but this time its a bit more symphonic and epic compared to our previous album ‘Above The Sky’. When it comes to the symphonic parts we’ve taken it a bit further and included a lot more orchestral instruments, including tubular bells, glockenspiel and sleigh bells to really get that Christmas sound to it.

We bet you didn’t expect this!Forget Halloween and lets celebrate Christmas right away! “In 2019 the Swedish power metal heroes MAJESTICA released their debut album "Above The Sky" and it became a huge success within the metal community.
