ReinXeed: Majestic

Melodic Heavy/Power Metal
4.25/5.0

I think Tommy Johansson has finely found his groove with his third ReinXeed project Majestic. 2008's The Light showed an auspicious but choppy beginning. Then on 2009's Higher, Johansson settled down and found his focus. His brand of European power metal is heavy on strong melodies, catchy hooks, burning guitar solos, and well-crafted keyboards for both presence and atmosphere. With this year's Majestic, all this gels into a formidable whole; this is ReinXeed's best work to date.

Nevertheless, ReinXeed is still pure melodic power metal, nothing more, nothing less. This time around, however, the grooves are greater and the songs much more accessible. While Majestic begins with a rocky start with Deep Under the Sea, Johansson improves quickly. A string of delectable and entertaining songs follow with Invincible, Never Lie, Once Upon a Time, and Melody of Life. That latter song coupled with Atlantis finds ReinXeed offering more complex and intriguing compositions. For pure passion and soaring melodic metal, Second Chance delivers.

Ultimately, on ReinXeed's Majestic Tommy Johansson has found his place and done well with this premium European melodic power metal. For a sound example of the genre in 2010, look no further then Majestic. Recommended.
