Majestica - "The Joy Of Christmas" (video)

Ο δίσκος των Majestica - "A Christmas Carol"
Another night of working late
For this cold, heartless man
They say his heart is filled
With loneliness and filled with hate
All this time I wondered
How he could have been if
Someone knew just what he need
And took away his act of greed

Of all these years
I've spent of working
For this stubborn man
I realized that wealth and fortune
Can't bring you all
I can imagine how
His life now could have been
If Someone took his hand
And said "I'll be your friend"

If he only
Knew the feeling
Of coming home to those
That you are holding close
This day is so much more
Than being all alone
I wish the joy of Christmas
I wish the joy would come to you

Here I am with my loving family
They make me feel like I'm the richest man so constantly
I can't imagine how my life now would have been
If no one had ever taken my hand and said "forever I'm your friend"

If he only
Knew the feeling
Of coming home to those
That you are holding close
This day is so much more
Than being all alone
I wish the joy of Christmas
Would find its way to you

See now that man, I know he can change to a different person
Where you'll find love, that's where you'll find Christmas - inside your heart
It's time to now make amends, to tear down the fence and go out into the world
And see all the joy that Christmas can bring

I wish he'd only
Had known the feeling
Of having someone close
Not being all alone

If he only
Knew the feeling
Of coming home to those
That you are holding close
This day is so much more
Than being all alone
I wish the joy of Christmas
I wish the joy would come to you

If he only
Knew the feeling
Of coming home to those
That you are holding close
This day is so much more
Than being all alone
I wish the joy of Christmas
I wish the joy would come to you

This day is so much more
Than being all alone
I wish the joy of Christmas
Would find its way back to you


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 βρίσκεται ήδη εκεί έξω. Τιτλοφορείται "A Christmas Carol" και κυκλοφορεί ήδη.

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.»
