The sixth full-length studio album by Italian Progressive Symphonic Power Metal band.
The fifth official album of the band marks their return to local label Scarlet Records. Following the band’s return, Thy Majestie switched their vocalist once again in favor of the talented Crimson Wind vocalist Alessio Taorminawhile, also recruiting a new keyboardist, Giuseppe Carrubba. These changes, even if considered rather small, present an amazing release and the actual face of Power Metal nowadays.
Thy Majestie has always been an energetic band, that followed the same paths of several of the great European Power Metal names, especially from their own local scene, as Rhapsody Of Fire, Labyrinth and Vision Divine, yet, this particular release sounded more credible as a concept. The lyrics are inspired by old Chinese history, while the music is exciting and containing elements from Gothic and Progressive Metal. Aside from their Metal knowledge that showcased dramatic vocals, wonderful lead guitar works of both soloing and melodies, smashing riffages of both bass and rhythm guitars, that transpired the legend, they present and definitive drumming, the great usage of the operatic factors next to the right usage of keyboards as a wonderful aura of change.
Thy Majestie made their own special comeback, with rooting out his name from the pages of history and into an epic Metal album. As always, this Italian band was able to impress with their sense of storytelling, alongside an amazing talent to create the best suitable music. “ShiHuangDi” is the band’s best possible offering yet!
