GLORYHAMMER about “Keeper Of The Celestial Flame Of Abernethy”:
“This tale begins long in the past, 1000 years before even Angus McFife was born. A simple peasant by the name of Zargothrax lived a peaceful existence weaving baskets in a village called Auchtermuchty, until the legendary hero Dundax decided to build a new Kingdom in his lands…the Kingdom of Fife. Follow the rise of Zargothrax into a twisted sorcerer of chaos and evil, as he seeks the ultimate revenge on the Prince of Fife and all his descendants!”

In the not-so-distant Kingdom of Fife, there lies a band like no other. GLORYHAMMER embodies the very essence of power metal and epic fantasy, with a sound so majestic and grandiose that it could only be the work of the gods themselves. Led by the manifestation of extreme trumpet-chaos in battle-mode, GLORYHAMMER has been waging a never-ending fight against the forces of Zargothrax since their formation in 2010.
With their soaring hyper-melodies, multitudinous orchestra-explosions and thunderous nano-guitar riffs, they have become the undisputed champions of the power metal scene, drawing in legions of fans from across the galaxy with their epic tales of intergalactic warfare, cosmic sorcery, and heroic deeds. It has been four years since the band’s last release, but the wait is finally over for another massive onslaught of power metal greatness.
With the journey back to Fife, Return to the Kingdom of Fife starts with trumpeting horns to lead them into battle, before jumping straight into “Holy Flaming Hammer of the Unholy Cosmic Frost”, telling the tale of reclaiming the lost Kingdom with the use of the mighty and majestic Holy Flaming Hammer.
But the evil wizard has laid waste all over the Kingdom after the devastating war of Dundee, forming the nuclear wasteland of “Imperium Dundaxia”. Crossing through the diseased Kingdom, the mighty Hootsman and his warriors ride on nuclear motorbikes as the “Wasteland Warrior Hoots Patrol” fights goblins and controls the law of the land.
The Grandmaster Proletius leads his “Brothers of Crail” to fight together and defeat the evil wizard Zargothrax. Rising to the occasion, the brave prince Angus McFife brings together warriors from across the land to fight in the name of “Fife Eternal”!
Onwards on their journey, the mighty heroes must cross through the Dwarven Caverns and defeat the “Sword Lord of the Goblin Horde” to ignite the path to retrieve the legendary weapon known as the “Vorpal Laserblaster of the Pittenweem”…but our heroes are too late, for the weapon has been stolen by a great force of evil!
The great journey comes to its climax as the evil sorcerer and master of nightmares, Zargothrax, wields ungodly power as the “Keeper of the Celestial Flame of Abernethy”, and the group of mighty warriors come together in one final attempt vanquish the evil double wizards from the Kingdom of Fife in “Maleficus Geminus (Colossus Matrix 38B – Ultimate Invocation of the Binary Thaumaturge)”.
This is an album for the ages – power metal shines brighter than ever on the thrilling and action-packed Return to the Kingdom of Fife!”

MAJESTY – end of the band / last album & last show on April 28th
6. April 2023
It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that MAJESTY has decided to cease all band activities. Thus, the upcoming album “Back to Attack” will be the last & final MAJESTY album – the release show on April 28th, 2023 in Würzburg will be the last concert of the band.
- The Oath Of Truth
- Back To Attack
- Demon War
- Glorious Warriors
- Never Kneel
- Freedom Child
- Age Of Glory
- Saviors In The Dark
- A Hero´s Storm
- In The Silence
- Our Time Has Come
- Heralds Of The Storm
The band states:
“Hello all you metalheads out there,
these words are very hard for us but at the same time we thought about them for quite some time now. “Back To Attack” which is kind of our comeback album after more than 3 years will also be our last album and the show we will play on the 28thof April will be the last Majesty show. We think that we managed to put everything the band stands for into one last mighty album and at the same time we kind of realized that from now on everything we could do would be just copy ourselves.
Over all these 10 official Majesty albums the story seems to be completely told now and we don ́t just want to repeat it again with slightly different versions which could never be as unique as the original songs.One thing is also crystal clear for us. We don ́t want to just fade out with some more “business as usual” albums and shows with no surprises anymore. We know that there are lots of bands out there who are doing that and completely feel fine with it. But for us we just don ́t want to do that.
With “Back To Attack” the magic of this band was still there and even more powerful than in many years before so we believe that this album will be the perfect one to end the chapter in complete happiness and the feeling of freedom.Instead of a club tour on small stages we now want to make the “Back To Attack” Release show on the 28thof April even bigger than planned and play new songs and all our greatest hits on a big stage with all the energy we all together as a band and you in front of the stage can give.
We really hope that you all can at least partlyunderstand our decision which was so hard to make for us but it just feels right to end it this way with a mighty album and a kick ass show. And even if some people might think this is kind of a promotional thing, it is definitely not. We always believedthat we should do what we feel and this means to follow our heart. You never know what the future brings but for now the book of MAJESTY ends on April the 28th
Tarek, Emanuel, Robin and Jan”
