Symphonic power metal outfit Majestica (formerly ReinXeed) have made a couple big announcements today; they have released their first single, ‘Rising Tide’, of their upcoming album, as well as confirmed the title: Above the Sky.
Here’s what Majestica has to say about the song:
“‘Rising Tide’ is not only an epic power metal song in the vein of Edguy, Stratovarius, and Running Wild. It’s also very orchestral with a lot of Hans Zimmer influences. The lyrics are about some people hoping to find the fountain of youth, because they’re becoming old and wanna relive the good times of when they were younger. This song also represents the band as well as the direction and sound of the new record pretty well. Not only for the music but also that we show that we love doing what we do and can throw in some humour here and there.”
Along with these announcements, Majestica have also released the cover art (produced by Sabaton guitarist Chris Rörland) and tracklist, which you can find below.
After six years of inactivity, ReinXeed (with Sabaton’s Tommy Johansson at the helm) have signed onto Nuclear Blast, changed their name, and announced a new record. 7 June marks their return.
