Majestica - "Ghost Of Christmas Past" (lyric video)

Ο δίσκος των Majestica - "A Christmas Carol"
Let's go back to
Where it started
Where my life
Was filled with peace
Though alone,
My dad cold hearted
My sister Fan,
Made my darkness cease
Was left at school
Every Christmas evening
Then one day
I found new meaning
When they would invite me home
Joyful, at ease - with family
With the news that Fanny died
I knew from this moment
That I'm all alone

(He thinks his alone when there's all around him others)
(That his lonely heart can’t see, it’s filled with greed)

Come and take my robe
We will fly away

Come with your robe, we fly away
To a time of jolly and gay
With the Ghost of Christmas Past
Here to help me find my way

Come with your robe, we fly away
To a time of jolly and gay
With the Ghost of Christmas Past
Here to help me find my way

On towards my glory days
Of working for a jolly man
Fezziwig, that kook, how he made us laugh and
Took us in with open arms
Dance ’til morning, singing, cheering
Christmas time was always steering
To a hope of better times
I still can recall that joyful night
When I met my love, my Belle
Wish for the rest of my time
That we could have made a life together

Come and take my robe
We will fly away

Come with your robe, we fly away
To a time of jolly and gay
With the Ghost of Christmas Past
Here to help me find my way

Come with your robe, we fly away
To a time of jolly and gay
With the Ghost of Christmas Past
Here to help me find my way

The hour strikes, it’s getting darker
Then I see a lonely man
Waiting for his true love Belle
Knowing that she won’t show up
She was my true love, I knew
But she had found herself someone new
Consumed by greed, his lust for wealth
Lost in his world, a tragic spell

Now I know what could have been
Should I regret that painful sin?
How I chose my own success
Before the only woman I have ever loved liked this

Come and take my robe
We will fly away

Come with your robe, we fly away
To a time of jolly and gay
With the help of the Ghost of the Christmas Past
To show me on my way

Come with your robe, we fly away
To a time of jolly and gay
With the Ghost of Christmas Past
Here to help me find my way


Το 2000 ο (νυν κιθαρίστας των Sabaton) Tommy Johansson δημιούργησε τους ReinXeed. Περισσότερο προσωπικό project (στο ντεμπούτο έπαιζε όλα τα όργανα μόνος του) στην αρχή, αλλά στην πορεία εξελίχθηκε σε "κανονικό" συγκρότημα.

Η μπάντα παρέμεινε ανενεργή δισκογραφικά της τελευταία εξαετία έχοντας κυκλοφορήσει (μέχρι και το 2013) έξι full length albums, δύο συλλογές, ένα ep κι ένα demo.

Πέρυσι τα τρία εναπομείναντα μέλη του συγκροτήματος αποφάσισαν να αλλάξουν όνομα κι οι Majestica ήλθαν στο προσκήνιο. Το ντεμπούτο τους έφερε τον τίτλο "Above the sky". Ο διάδοχός του είναι προ των πυλών. Τιτλοφορείται "A Christmas Carol" κι αναμένεται τον πρώτο χειμερινό μήνα.

Δελτίο τύπου: «In 2019 the new-coming Swedish Power Metal heroes MAJESTICA released their debut album "Above The Sky" and it became a huge success within the Metal community. Now in 2020 they 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 along with elements from TWILIGHT FORCE, RHAPSODY, ALAN SILVESTRI, DANNY ELFMAN and JOHN WILLIAMS. What makes this a Christmas album is not only because during the entire album there's plenty of well-known Christmas songs inside the 9 tracks of Epic and Symphonic Power Metal, but also because the theme is the well-known story of Ebenezer Scrooge from the Charles Dickens Christmas novel "A Christmas Carol".

With many different voices for the many characters in the story and music that fits the story perfect people will not only hear a newly well-written Power Metal album, but also a Power Metal Musical that gives you the right Christmas feeling that you've never heard before in a Power Metal album.»

Tommy "ReinXeed" Johansson (Vocals, Guitar): «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.»

Chris David (Bass player): «If you know the story of 'A Christmas Carol' I think the title 'Ghost of Christmas Past' tells you what the song is all about. But if you don’t, it is about Ebenezer Scrooge's past, what happened in his early years and how he became the greedy lonely man he is. The music shows off many elements you can expect from the record. It is a symphonic power metal Christmas musical album so of course you will hear sleigh bells, glockenspiel, recognisable Christmas melodies and an appearance of 'The Majestic Choir'. But it is also a MAJESTICA album and I promise you that you will hear that as well!»
