The new band Majesties features Obsequiae’s Tanner Anderson, Carl Skildum, and Matthew Kirkwold from Inexorum. Their music is old-school Gothenburg-style melodic death metal in the vein of In Flames and At The Gates, and they couldn’t do it better.
Stream “The World Unseen” from Majesties’ forthcoming debut Vast Reaches Unclaimed. The main riff sounds straight out of the ’90s.
Skildum explained that “‘The World Unseen’ provides a broad representation of the surreal lyrical themes of the record, especially an out-of-body experience.” In this song, a mind is untethered to a physical form, free from physical constraints as it flows through the world. The verse riff from a 1997 riff tape is part of the deep roots of this song.”
Vast Reaches Unclaimed is available for pre-order here.
I love music. I love crowded venues, loud music, and sweat-soaked fans. I love the sound of a venue opening its doors to the public.
Hey there! I have a wealth of experience in the entertainment and private event industries, having worked in various roles over the past 20 years. I have a private security background and have received training in defensive strategy, Krav Maga, festival security planning, and emergency response. I've worked at some fantastic concert venues and festivals, such as Emo's East, Stubb's, ACL Festival, Bonnaroo, and SXSW. I've also been fortunate to work in the box office for the Circuit of the Americas and the Germania Music Amphitheater music venue.
In 2014, I developed a passion for all things media-related and began exploring content creation and concert photography opportunities. I have no formal training in these areas, but in 2017, I decided to take it to the next level by pursuing a degree in the arts, specifically in radio, television, and film. I am currently a multimedia journalist for the student life department at ACC. I have received a scholarship from the Austin Film Society.
I've been blessed to have been mentored as a talent buyer under the legendary Mark Lee of 462 Concerts (now known as Live Nation) in Dallas, Tx, for nearly a decade. I've also had the opportunity to work as a camera operator for the Full Moon Features Puppetmaster sequel: Doktor Death and filmed multiple music videos, including SSB's feature single with Bernz, "Insane," and the Dirty Wormz dub hop single with Tech N9ne and Krizz Kaliko "2INCH REEL KILLA".
I truly believe in capturing the essence of life and representing it in a creative effort. Overall I'm passionate about my work and excited to share my experience and skills with others.
