Majestica - To Release Christmas Album

Swedes Majestica are back with a new full length announcement: a Christmas musical power metal album, entitled A Christmas Carol. What makes this a unique outing 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. The pre-sale of the album will start on October 23rd, along with the release of the first single.

Guitarist/vocalist Tommy Johansson states: "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."

In regards to their musical direction he adds: "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."

Well this will be interesting. Hopefully Tommy changes the traditional christmas songs enough to sound like his brand of power metal, guitar solos would be cool.

Unless it is TSO Christmas albums are always a slow death.
So many chips on the world's shoulder. Low on ketchup.
