Supreme Majesty - 2003 Danger


SUPREME MAJESTY - DANGER (2003, MASSACRE RECORDS)
Joakim Olsson - vocals
Chrille Andersson - guitars, keyboards
Rille Svensson - guitars
Daniel Andersson - bass, vocals
Jocke Unger - drums


Background
I cast my mind back to 2001 and the debut release 'Tales Of A Tragic Kingdom' from Sweden's Supreme Majesty. One of my favourite albums of that year and naturally my anticipation for their new album 'Danger' was pretty high. Could they replicate the splendour of the debut, or even eclipse it? Well, I don't think they quite eclipsed it, but 'Danger' is a worthy sophomore effort.

The Songs
When it comes to melody in metal not many bands can better Supreme Majesty. The band have kept to what proved so popular on the debut - a heap of melody, harmony vocals, a few fast tracks, a couple of pure hard rockers and good ballads. As with the debut Fredrik Nordstrom is on board to handle production. This guy is extraordinary, most things he touches turn to gold, or more aptly, a damn good melodic metal album. The songwriting is just as good as the debut, with a couple of huge tracks. There's the Shy meets Europe style title track (f*&%ing huge!!!) and the super melodic 'Cruel Circle', which includes a guest solo from Hammerfall's Stefan Elmgren. As mentioned the ballads are great, in particular 'Until the End of Time'.

In Summary
If you've already enjoyed the debut, and other 2003 releases from Stratovarius, Sonata Arctica and Twilightning, then 'Danger' should be on your shopping list. If you haven't got the others, pick them up while you are at it. After all, it's nearly Christmas. You deserve a treat or three!!
