New EMPIRE CD To Feature Guest Appearances By TONY MARTIN, NEIL MURRAY

German guitarist Rolf Munkes (MAJESTY, EMPIRE, RAZORBACK, ex-VANIZE) has posted the following message on his web site:

"Right now we have started recording vocals for the upcoming EMPIRE CD, which will be out in spring 2006. Tony Martin [ex-BLACK SABBATH] has done some outstanding vocal performances so far and as far as I can see the third EMPIRE album will be the 'best' EMPIRE album, ever. It's gonna be a HELL of an album. The amazing drum parts this time were delivered by my RAZORBACK bandmate Andre Hilgers (AXXIS, SILENT FORCE). In December Neil Murray [WHITESNAKE, BLACK SABBATH] will arrive in my studio to do his bass parts (looking forward to this!). Mixing is sheduled for the end of December. More news on that soon.

"As far as I know the MAJESTY shedule, there is no more gigs planned for this year. The new MAJESTY album, titled 'Hellforces', will be out in February. There will be a release party around the release date and possibly a tour in spring next year. So watch out for that. I'll keep you informed.

"And finally I did a guest solo on the song 'The Final Trial' [on the] already released project called DAWNRIDER by MAJESTY singer Tarek Maghary. Other guests were ex-MANOWAR guitarist Ross the Boss and Rob Rock, just to name a few."
