    According to their website, Black Majesty have been invited to play the Headbangers Open Air in Germany on Friday July 8th. Sounds like a two-pronged Aussie power metal assault on Europe coming up!

    Reckon this is excellent news!:headbang::kickass:
    The more Aussie who make a mark in Europe, the better -in a form, 'cause we don't want a talent drain like we had back in the 80's (Nick Cave, INXS, etc), but still, good to hear.
    Don't really know much of Black Majesty's material but I's like what I's have heard and their EPIC POWER stylings should go over well with the Germans.
    Black Majesty: we slaute you!:headbang::kickass:

    Good on them!! And also on the 25th of June, they're playing at the Empire Hotel in Sydney, with Endel Rivers Hardbite (their keys players solo band, whom they're touring europe with) Friar Rush, and us. I hope we dont ruin it too much :D , cause they'll be playing a lot of new material and by all accounts, its some pretty awesome stuff!

    I hope they (BM) can gel as a live band properly before they tour. They're all monster players and Gio is an amazing vocalist but I've seen them live twice now and they were rather inconsistent, so hopefully when they hit Germany they're on fire because a gig like that can make or break a band.

    From the clips on their site, it sounds really cool! Good luck to these guys.

    'Sands of Time' is a good album. I only got to see em once, and I was pretty dissapointed.... From what I heard the second time they played here was worse. Look forward to seeing them in june though, hopefully they do gel.

    Good band, but nothing within their own material really hit the spot or left any inspiration. Covering Halford (Vic on the Park, Jan. 2004) resulted in a big thumbs up for me! I'll still probably check out the new album when it's released...

    Black Majesty would be my favourite Australian band I really like what they do. Remind me of old Jag Panzer especially the vocals. I think they will slay them in Germany! Looking forward to the Silent Company album very much!

    Mark from The Eternal was only filling in on bass. I see Evan Harris from Taramis who played on the first Black Majesty album is playing live with Black Majesty now.

    I thought both Sydney shows I went to were really good too. Would be great if Danny C or Silvio Massaro comes out with em again.

    I agree they will slay and are pretty close to my exact favourite style of metal. One question - Are you in the band?

    You think so? I don't think they sound anything alike at all!

    There's definitely elements! Have you heard the early Jag Panzer stuff? And I can't be alone, the sticker I got on my copy of Sands of Time even had it mentioned they sounded like "Jag Panzer, Queensryche and Maiden". Nothing definitive but I think elements. I hear more Jag Panzer than the others.

    They remind me a lot more of Fates Warning to be honest.

    I loved Sands Of Time but I'm yet to see em' live, might have to check out the Sydney show.
