Supreme Majesty - Divine Enigma


Year of Release: 1999
Label: Loud 'N' Proud
Catalog Number: n/a
Format: CD
Total Time: 20:36:00

Supreme Majesty was reformed from a band that had existed some years and released an album on a larger label. The band felt this co-operation didn't work out and decided to start from scratch again. In the beginning of 1999, Supreme Majesty was formed. Shortly after, the band recorded a demo, which ended up at Loud 'N' Proud, and the rest is history.

Supreme Majesty play mid-paced to up-tempo melodic heavy metal or power metal if you prefer. The band list acts like Iced Earth, Dio and Running Wild as musical influences. This is fairly guitar-dominated, backed up by simple keys and a decent mid-ranged vocalist. The melody-lines are good and so are the choruses. Of the four songs offered, there are no killers, but they all hold good and above average quality.

The production is OK, although with room for an overall improvement of the sound. Like their labelmates in Seven, this band clearly show a big potential, as they seem to be good musicians and maintain an ability to write good melodies. And by working even more on their melody-lines, we could be in for a killer when a full album is released. I will keep my fingers crossed.
