Vocalist Tarek "MS" Maghary of the German metal band MAJESTY has issued the following update:

"First of all, I want to tell all fans, partners and friends that MAJESTY no longer exists. There was no basis anymore for me and the previous members of MAJESTY to continue our creative work.

"I had a feeling for quite a while now that the time has come to restart with a new band to point out that heavy metal can never be stopped and that a new force will bring the whole world that mighty message. In a dream I recently had, only one name for that power came to my mind: METALFORCE. This new band will exactly do what also was the essence of MAJESTY, but even bigger and more powerful. The first gig on the Magic Circle Festival 2008 already filled me up with pride as I looked into the eyes of ten thousands of fans who encouraged us in our decision.

"We will very soon release a new album and tour all over the world.

"Finally I want to tell you one important thing: All the things we did and things we will do are done first and foremost for all our fans out there who like we give all their blood and sweat for the only way to live: heavy metal! With METALFORCE a new era is beginning and I know from the bottom of my heart that all our fans will accompany us on that great mission."

MAJESTY's third album, entitled "Hellforces", was released in February 2006 via Massacre Records. The follow-up to 2003's "Reign in Glory" was once again produced by Stefan Kaufmann (former ACCEPT drummer, current U.D.O. guitarist).
