I have always had a soft spot for Majesty. A long running true and classic heavy metal act puttting out nothing less than good albums all along their career without ever making the great headlines, but never giving Rebels Of Our Time - Majesty - Rebels their call.
As usual this goes in a strong Manowar vein, but with a very personal touch that makes them stand out, much due to Tarek Maghary's charming and unpolished voice, and is in my ears way better than their source of inspiration.
This is definitely their best album so far containing songs ranging from quite good to great almost all through apart from the non-saying Across The Lightning with more majestic, epic, catchy and hymn-like choruses than ever and simple but effective riffing clad in their best production to date. Standout tracks are hard Jacques Dutronc - Les Grands Succès De Jacques Dutronc single out since there is a very even and consistant level on the album.
After a strong first half they even bring it up a notch during the remainder of the second half. One small minus, however, for repetitive choruses and cheesy lyrics occasionally.
That aside, this is a joyous and energetic ride from start to finish. Be sure to catch them on tour with Battle Beast Rebels Of Our Time - Majesty - Rebels spring. That should be a great package and a smashing night out. Majesty - Rebels Published March 08 Majesty - Rebels. Published March 08 Tarek "MS" Maghary.
