Commented MAJESTY vocalist Tarek "MS" Maghary: "We are already excited about the dedication, the enthusiasm and the professionalism of NoiseArt. Those guys are true metalheads like ourselves who fight with full force for heavy metal.
"It's the beginning of a new era for MAJESTY and 'Thunder Rider' is a mighty kick in the ass for everybody who had doubts about MAJESTY and our will for victory. We are back — stronger than ever and with NoiseArt we have a mighty partner on our side!"
Added NoiseArt: "We are proud to welcome the band MAJESTY in our roster! We were tracking the activities of the band for years and are looking forward to successfully work together with MAJESTY in the future!"
The song "Metal Union", which ends the "Thunder Rider" album, is the musical conversion of that theme. Along with Tarek, Sven D'Anna (WIZARD), Hannes Braun (KISSIN' DYNAMITE), Mat Sinner (PRIMAL FEAR, SINNER), Patrick Fuchs (ROSS THE BOSS), Andreas Babushkin (PARAGON) and Marta Gabriel (CRYSTAL VIPER) sing on the track.
