THY MAJESTIE: Footage Of Entire Performance At 2008 BRAINSTORM FESTIVAL Posted Online

December 12, 2012

Italian "symphonic power epic" metal band THY MAJESTIE has released video footage of its entire performance at the 2008 edition of the Brainstorm Festival, which took place in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands.

Commented the group: "Unfortunately, the [proposed] live DVD [of the Brainstorm concert] will never be released. So after such hard job was a shame to leave it at the dust, after four years since its production we decided to put it on line to make people able to watch it. Many things have changed since then, we have a new singer and a new keyboard player, but THY MAJESTIE's songs are still there, enjoy it and share it, as much as you can!"

THY MAJESTIE's fifth album, "ShiHuangDi", was released earlier in the year via Scarlet Records. The CD, which marks the first THY MAJESTIE release since 2009's "Dawn", was recorded at Wreck Studios in Palermo, Italy, mixed by Giuseppe Orlando (NOVEMBRE) at Outer Sound Studios in Rome, Italy and mastered by Mika Jussila (NIGHTWISH, SONATA ARCTICA, STRATOVARIUS) at Finnvox Studios in Helsinki, Finland. The effort also features a very special guest appearance by renowned singer Fabio Lione (RHAPSODY OF FIRE, VISION DIVINE, KAMELOT).

"ShiHuangDi" is described in a press release as "another epic conceptual record, in the vein of THY MAJESTIE's acclaimed albums 'The Lasting Power' (2000) and 'Hastings 1066' (2002). [It] marks another important chapter in the band's career, this time dealing with the life of the legendary Qin Shi Huang, who became the first emperor of a unified China in 221 BC.

"'ShiHuangDi' [sees] THY MAJESTIE returning to their trademark sound, made of epic atmospheres, massive orchestral and operatic parts and — most of all — genuinely devastating metal."
