Reactivated German metallers MAJESTY will release a new album, "Banners High", on December 20 via NoiseArt Records. The band's first-ever concept CD tells a fantasy story penned by MAJESTY singer Tarek "MS" Maghary.
Says Tarek: "We're very proud to release our first concept album.
"The story deals with oppressed people who march into battle to finally be free.
"We definitely didn't want to do one of those concept albums with silly, boring audiobook parts and thousands of intros.
"The story is being conveyed by ten heavy metal anthems which could easily stand alone too. Which is why you can simply listen to the album without delving into the concept too much. If you want to though, you'll experience an incredibly epic world where honor, friendship, self-sacrifice and love of freedom still mean something."
