Nuclear Blast is pleased to announce the signing of Swedish symphonic power metal act Majestica.

Tommy Johansson is a well-known person, especially due to his role as guitar player for heavy metallers Sabaton. But before he joined the Swedish “war machine”, he was busy playing in his own band named Reinxeed, completed by bassist Chris David and guitarist Alex Oriz. Of course, his touring activities with Sabaton slowed down the creative process for Reinxeed a little.
