In 2019 the new-coming Swedish Power Metal heroes MAJESTICA released their debut album
"Above The Sky" and it became a huge success within the Metal community.Now in 2020 they are back with not only a new album, but a special treat for their fans: A Christmas Musical Power Metal album entitled “A Christmas Carol”.
It’s pure Symphonic Power Metal in the true MAJESTICA spirit along with elements from TWILIGHT FORCE, RHAPSODY, ALAN SILVESTRI, DANNY ELFMAN and JOHN WILLIAMS.

What makes this a Christmas album is not only because during the entire album there's plenty of well‐known Christmas songs inside the 9 tracks of Epic and Symphonic Power Metal, but also because the theme is the well‐known story of Ebenezer Scrooge from the Charles Dickens Christmas novel “A Christmas Carol”.
With many different voices for the many characters in the story and music that fits the story perfect people will not only hear a newly well‐written Power Metal album, but also a Power Metal Musical that gives you the right Christmas feeling that you’ve never heard before in a Power Metal album.

Tommy states, “A silly dream of mine has finally come true. For many years I’ve wanted to release a Christmas album, because the atmosphere around Christmas is always so peaceful and the music with clear Christmas theme is always beautiful and very well‐written. The reason why we chose to make a Musical album with the story of Ebenezer Scrooge is very simple – it's a great story to tell around Christmas and it works so well as a musical. And with the help of different voice actors and singers we made it possible for this to happen and we’re very happy with the result.”

In regards to their musical direction he adds, “Once again people can expect real Power Metal, but this time a bit more Symphonic and Epic compared to our previous album ‘Above The Sky’. When it comes to the symphonic parts we’ve taken it a bit further and included a lot more orchestral instruments, including Tubular Bells, Glockenspiel and Sleigh Bells to really get that Christmas sound to it.”

The vocals are once again high pitched in the veins of Michael Kiske, Tobias Sammet and Sebastian Bach. But this time together with guest singers from such bands as VEONITY, HOT BEEF INJECTION and all the members from MAJESTICA doing lead vocals.The artwork is made by the un‐known artist Madeleine Andersson. She’s created some fan art for TWILIGHT FORCE and her style in painting is just perfect for what the band needed for this album.
