Portnoy comments: “‘Reaching For The Sky’ is the first single off Transatlantic‘s latest magnum opus ‘The Absolute Universe’.

In 2019 the Swedish power metal heroes Majestica released their debut album “Above The Sky” and it became a huge success within the metal community. Now in 2020 they are back with not only a new album, but a special treat for their fans: a Christmas musical power metal album entitled “A Christmas Carol”. It’s pure symphonic power metal in the true Majestica spirit along with elements inspired by the likes of Twilight Force, Rhapsody, Alan Silvestri, Danny Elfman and John Williams. Today, the band release a music video for their second single ‘Ghost Of Marley’.

Bassist Chris David comments: “This is the very first song that Majestica have released that is a duet with two lead voices, and it’s also our first music video with theatrical play. ‘Ghost of Marley’ is a conversation between the main character of “A Christmas Carol” Ebenezer Scrooge, who gets visited by the ghost of his old co-worker Jacob Marley. The video features myself as Marley and Tommy as Scrooge. Personally for me this has been one of the most challenging songs I have recorded to this date, both musically and visually but it was a lot of fun!”

The video can be watched below.
