Majesty

There have been dozens of metal bands calling themselves Majesty, so finding any real info on this obscure band pretty futile. However, that doesn't detract from how epic this 1995 demo (titled The Natural Architect) is. I know that this Majesty was from Finland, and they bring some serious downer doom ala Vitus or Forest of Equilibrium era Cathedral with a very obvious drum machine. The sentiment is right on the money though, this is a fantastic listen. Did they release anything else? Anyone?

This reminds, at times, of Creston Spiers fronting some kind of teched-out Doom outfit.

Good, but kinda weird. The choices of "other" instruments make this unique... the glockenspiel, the pan synth pan pipes. I can get into it if i pretend it's a real drummer.
