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 SABATONslowed 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’sstand-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.
