Majestic is the project formed by multi-instrumentalist Jeff Hamel. My first experience with the artist's music was the album Descension which I thought was a good listen. I am happy to say the new release entitled Arrival blows that one out of the water. Hamel has outdid himself this time around. While Hamel has a pleasant enough voice, I felt the vocals were somewhat lacking with the Descension album. On the new release Hamel has brought in the vocal talents of Jessica Rasche who has an excellent voice totally suited to Hamel's style of progressive rock. Hamel adds some of his own vocal touches taking the occasional lead and adding backing vocals. Hamel combines elements of neo, heavy prog and symphonic rock, blending them together to make a delicious musical concoction. There is a good mixture of heavy and light moments that showcases the excellent musicianship of Hamel. While Hamel is still influenced by bands like Porcupine Tree and Pink Floyd he is really starting to develop his own style on Arrival.
