Australia's Metal scene may be small but is nothing to be sneezed at. Far from the trends and the musical centres of the world, a very independent scene has developed which has a life of its own. Numerous Australian Metal bands have long cast off their exotic status and in many respects they are seen as role models. With their three previous albums BLACK MAJESTY have proved again and again that they are absolutely capable of playing excellent melodic Power Metal, which has its roots in the very earth of the genre. But they also know how to introduce innovative ideas and with their impressive compositions knowingly raise themselves above the rest of the scene.

2010 will be BLACK MAJESTY's year. With an album like "In Your Honour", the title referring to their numerous fans who have stuck by them during their career, nothing can go wrong. The songs reflect elements of Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Helloween, Queensyrche and even Hammerfall without trying to copy them. The hymn-like opener, "Far Beyond", with its impressive classical metal riffs and its up-tempo beat marks a journey into the very core of metal eargasms.

The driving, fast riff attacks and excellent song lines of "God Of War" reminds one of Helloween in their "Keeper Of The Seven Keys" times, but at a much higher voltage, topped by the BLACK MAJESTY trademarks in the form of brilliant lead guitars and highly melodic vocals. "Further Than Insane" is an enormously fast number with tight melodies and superb riffing as well as a perfectly galloping tempo. The foot on the pedal is not quite as heavy on songs such as "End Of Time", "Witching Hour" and Millenium" with their solid melodies, clever musicality and exhilarating solo parts. "Wish You Well" is definitely a hit for the band, with an unforgettable chorus and underlined by a riff, which can almost be described as "classic". The guitar duels of Messrs Janevski and Mohamed are of the highest quality, and John Cavaliere's vocals almost unique.

With all this comes a warmer, broader sound by Roland Grapow, who gave the nine songs of the regular release a heart and soul (a limited edition Digipack CD with liner notes, poster and sticker contains eleven songs) - all these are ingredients of a classic album. "In Your Honour" is THE perfect album for the Power Metal fan who sees memorable melodies and diversified guitar parts as being just as important as driving banger rhythms.

The album's high quality cover artwork was carried out by Dirk Illing (Paragon, Wizard etc.), who also designed the cover of the current Scorpions album, "Sting In The Tail" and who, with his work has put the crown onto this, the fourth instalment of the BLACK MAJESTY history.
