Melodic Death Metal Band MAJESTIES (OBSEQUIAE, INEXORUM) Drops “In Yearning, Alive”

Must read

Majesties is the new group from Sweden featuring guitarist/vocalist/drummer Tanner Anderson (Obsequiae), plus guitarist Carl Skildum and bassist Matthew Kirkwold (Inexorum), and they’ve just dropped their new single “In Yearning, Alive” which will be featured on their upcoming album Vast Reaches Unclaimed, due this March. You can check out the track in the video below right now.

About the new single, Anderson said that “‘In Yearning, Alive’ is an ode to one of the finest examples of melodic death metal – the godly 1995 EP [from In Flames,] Subterranean. In it, we dismiss the idle and pervasive notion that ‘the repetition of the riff’ is a sign of mature songwriting across all styles of heavy music. For those who lack the ability to pay attention to detail, you fortunately have melodic death metal post-1996. For those who instead want to feel the harmonic fabrics woven throughout the short-lived tapestry of sound, and who want the teetering-on-disorienting frenzy of riff-smiths like Alf Svensson, this is for you.”

Vast Reaches Unclaimed will be out March 3 via the 20 Buck Spin label, and is available for pre-sale here. The album was engineered by Majesties members, and was mixed and mastered by Adam Tucker (Ulthar, Thou, Obsequiae), and comes complete with photography by Sarah Kirkwold and artwork by Juanjo Castellano (Gates Of Ishtar, Varathron, The Black Dahlia Murder). The album’s diversity will offer a little something for everyone, from fans of In Flames and Dark Tranquility to Iron Maiden die-hards.
