Germany's MAJESTY have completed work on their third album with producer Stefan Kaufmann (former ACCEPT drummer, current U.D.O. guitarist) for a January 20, 2006 release. An EP release will precede the album later in the year.
MAJESTY's second full-length album, "Reign in Glory", was released in October 2003 through Massacre Records. The follow-up to 2001's "Keep It True" was recorded at Roxx studios in Pulheim, Germany under the watchful eye of Stefan Kaufmann and marked the recording debut with the group of former VANIZE guitarist Rolf Munkes.
As previously reported, DAWNRIDER, the side project of MAJESTY mastermind Tarek "MS" Maghary, will release their first album, "Fate Is Calling", on October 21 via Massacre Records. The concept album, which tells a great epic fantasy story taking place in the kingdom of Riandra, will feature guest appearances by some of the best singers of today's heavy metal scene, including Rob Rock (ex-IMPELLITTERI) and James Rivera (HELSTAR, SEVEN WITCHES). Other guest musicians include Mark Shelton and Hellroadie (MANILLA ROAD), Ross The Boss (ex-MANOWAR), Gianluca and Daniele from BATTLE RAM, Charlie Steinhauer (PARADOX), Sven from WIZARD, Andreas from PARAGON, and many more. The song "They Conquer", featuring members of MANILLA ROAD, is available for download at this location.
