THY MAJESTIE Announces More Lineup Changes

April 14, 2007

Italian "symphonic power epic" metal band THY MAJESTIE has parted ways with guitarist Giovanni Santini and vocalist Dario Grillo. Replacing Santini in the group's lineup is Simone Campione, "a very good guitarist from Palermo is to perform at our gigs in Holland [in May] and he's also going to record the next THY MAJESTIE album," according to a posting on the group's web site.

Regarding Grillo's split with the band, the remaining members of THY MAJESTIE write, "It was a mistake to believe that with Dario Grillo the things might have run easily. We already got it four years ago when there was some communication problem. And so it was after a hard struggle to make his mind up about our gigs in Holland we decided to leave him with his troubles that may have thwarted the smooth running of our work. Good luck to Dario. This time we're sure we won't get any relationship anymore."

THY MAJESTIE has yet to announce a replacement vocalist but "we've got some interesting stuff and we'll show you it up soon," the group promises on its web site.

THY MAJESTIE's latest album, "Jean D'Arc", was in 2005 via Scarlet Records. The follow-up to 2002's "Hastings 1066" was mastered at The Mastering Room in Sweden by Goran Finnberg.
