In 2019, the Swedish power metal band Majestica released their debut album Above The Sky, which was swiftly followed up in 2020 by their Christmas musical album A Christmas Carol. Both albums received rapturous praise from fans, but with touring halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the band wanted to find an alternative way to present their live experience.
Today, Majestica release a new digital live single Above The Sky In Tokyo, which was recorded at their last show in Tokyo before the pandemic hit. Featured are two very special songs; the sparkling title track of their first album ‘Above The Sky’ and ’Welcome To The Theater’ from the Reinxeed album of the same name.
The band commented, ”We’re very happy to celebrate the 2-year anniversary of Above The Sky, with our first MAJESTICA live release! It is also very exciting that this material is from our 2020 shows in Japan. We’ve always had a special relationship with Japan since our first release with REINXEED back in 2008, which is also one of the reasons that we have the REINXEED song ’Welcome To The Theater’ included as well. ’Above the Sky’ was written as a live song and we’re glad to now be able to show this to the whole world, when we can’t play it live.”
See MAJESTICA live on their European tour this winter and experience a unique “Power Metal meets Musical” staging of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens.
