Peter Jones This is a double album for a great price. The first disk follows that simple idea of an ocean crossing through a series of atmospheric tracks that recount the feelings of those engaged in travel. Not a new idea (maybe) and the music is well-rooted in rock. It is, however, very well executed with some inspired moments.

The second disc is distinctly heavier again, with several wonderful moments. Favorite track: Becoming (Reprise).

about

Over two years in the making, Majestic has unleashed their greatest masterpiece, V.O.Z. This new double CD is more ambitious than any of our previous CDs to date. Produced by Jeff Hamel, Jeff features a brand new lineup of fantastic artists on V.O.Z. Handling vocals for the new CD are David Cagle, Tara Morgan, Chris Hodges, and Celine Derval. These incredibly talented vocalists bring a very outstanding dynamic performance to V.O.Z, which heightens the already dramatic compositions Majestic is well-known for.

Handling drums and percussion, Jeff is joined by master drummer Mike Kosacek. Mike’s killer chops, and technical ability to improvise, made him the perfect fit for this CD. The artwork for the new album is handled by none other than the surrealist artistic wizard, Vladimir Moldavsky. Some of you may know Vladimir’s work with the Proximal Distance project.

As in Majestic tradition, we always try to out do the previous releases. The album V.O.Z. is no exception. With new talent, better songwriting, and more focus on production, we think we set the bar pretty high! Majestic fans will not be disappointed!

Let the voyage begin….

(Instrumental)
Track Name: VOZ I – New World
VOZ I - New World

We had the cover of darkness
When we broke free from our home
We were destined for the new world
We felt so alone, so alone

We took only what we carried
Left our world behind
We left from the shoreline
We never said goodbye
Track Name: VOZ II – Crossing Meridian
VOZ II - Crossing Meridian

As we drift away, the shore is getting small
Questions we thought we knew, they mean nothing at all
The choice we made cannot turn back, no it cannot turn back
The light we knew has now gone out; we now see the world is black

But there is a place we dream of in far away lands
A place where all our dreams can come true if we just made our stand
As the waves crash upon this ship, our tomorrow feels so bright
A new adventure in our hearts, set the sails, the stars are our guide
If the day never comes, if the journey is done
I am with you
If we never break free, if the oceans now freeze
I am with you
The faith never ends, I’ll never pretend
I am with you
Hold my hand tight, throughout this long night
I am with you
Forever with you

We are sailing on
On and on and on
We are sailing on
On and on and on

Track Name: VOZ V – Whispers
VOZ V - Whispers

The seas are calm, I can rest my mind
We have left home long ago, we lost track of time
Day after day, here or away, i am by your side
Even with the darkness ahead, I will never say goodbye

Remember back when all was true, remember that fine day
The madness of the world we knew made us run away
I promised I was yours as I closed my eyes
We sailed on and on and on, we left the world behind

If the day never comes, if the journey is done
I am with you
If we never break free, if the oceans now freeze
I am with you
The faith never ends, I’ll never pretend
I am with you
Hold my hand tight, throughout this long night
I am with you
Forever with you

Track Name: VOZ VII – Darkened Worlds
VOZ VII - Darkened Worlds

I am the ocean
I am the wind moving on
I surround you
I am the song

I am the darkness of
Secrets you try to hide
You are becoming
something else inside

I am the spirit
I am your tears
I am endless
I am your fears

If I call you
What would you hear
Darkened worlds
Show within the mirror

I am the future
I am the past
I am the origin
I am the last

I am the darkness of
Secrets you try to hide
You are becoming
something else inside
If I call you
what would you hear
Darkened worlds
Show within the mirror
I am there

Track Name: VOZ X – Voyage Ends
VOZ X - Voyage Ends

Is there something in the distance?
Have we questioned our existence?
We have been gone so long at sea
We have held strong you and me
We see the shoreline getting close
Our sail’s strong and the wind still blows
We are almost home, watch the birds that fly
See our Majestic mountains in the sky

There must be magic here so it seems
In this new world full of life and dreams
We believed, we have come so far
Led by stars to where we are
With our love that was strong as stone
Today is the day that we are home
We collapse, fall down on the sand
The story here now comes to an end

But wait…just wait…something is not right
I look to see to figure out something is not right
As I turned you disappeared, where did you go?
Footprints you made here in the sand, this place never shows

What is happening in my mind, I do not understand
Was this all a crazy dream, Tell me where I am?
Looking back did I leave alone? Oh god, what did I do?
Now I see back at home, I took the life from you

I remember the poisoned air
I remember screaming nightmares
I relive this a thousand times
Endless cries till the end of time

We were destined for the new world
With a love that was strong as stone
As we drift away, the shore is getting small
We are almost home,we are almost home

Track Name: Becoming
Becoming

Racing with the energy
Like the speed of light
Together with the synergy
Lead us out of sight

The hills are now calling us
We feel so alive
Guided by the stars above
Pictures now aligned

Floating in the atmosphere
Lost within the haze
Stepping out of what is here
To another day

Passing through the doorway
Normalcy behind
Inside out, reverse the thought
Deep within the mind

Close my eyes, endless skies, we breathe
What I see inside me I believe
I let go of what I know, I am free
Free to be and free to see, I am me

As we breathe in the spirit release
As we breathe in becoming me

I am becoming, I am the sun
I am becoming, becoming the one
I am becoming deeper each day
I am becoming the price that you pay
I am becoming the love you seek
I am becoming your everything
I am becoming what haunts you in dreams
I am becoming universal strings
Track Name: Spirits Dwell
Spirits Dwell

(Instrumental)
Track Name: Around the Sun
Around the Sun

As we are walking
We look down the road
It goes on forever
Neither young or old
We are timeless
We move along
The skies are endless
We close our eyes to dream within the song

The world we see slowly it drifts away
Around the sun to find another way
If we turn it on inside and out
We hide the meanings of what its about

The touch of sadness
Mixed with tears of joy
They are restless
When they destroy
If you are listening
If you hear the sounds
Step above what you think you know
Control what you see, turn it all around

Silence the world the others will say
I can feel your rock and roll way
If we make it higher rising above
Come together, you and I feel the love

As we breathe in the spirit releases
As we breathe in becoming me
Track Name: Red Skies
Red Skies

We wake in the morning
The sun begins to rise
There is a haze growing
Inside our eyes

From the madness of the world
The skies are turning red
Rivers run deeper now
Think I will drift away instead

Turn around some will say
The starship needs to find a way
New worlds wait, you’ll see it too
Moving on, as we always do
Leave behind your empty thoughts
The others see, the others doubt
The universe is ours to take
Moving on before we break

Count down starts, time to go
Say the prayers to all you know
A spark, a light, we engage
Lift off the rock from which we’re made
Close our eyes, hang on tight
This ride will be out of sight
We climb so high,the stars are near
We float away, away from here

Silence from the world behind is gone
How long before our kind is done
Time is now - Time is now
The other time i saw you, you’ve been here too
You forgot the world that you once knew
Time is now - Time is now

When they lost it all
The Great cities fall
The glow from yesterday
Now drifts away
The water has dried
The trees have died
The love from yesterday
A dove from another day

The cloud began to rise
In the northern sky
One man brought the fall
The one that killed them all
Lit the world as a thousand suns
Then they saw no side won
Now there’s a hole in the sky
Burn the planet void of life

We had to run to the nearest star
To start again somewhere far
Onboard the ship, we set the course
We said goodbye, we closed the door
Your story is the same as mine
We replay way too many times
Billions of people will not see
The end is caused by one man's greed

We take the knowledge
And pass it on and on
As we go around and round
We sing the same ole song

We wake in the morning
The sun begins to rise
There is a haze growing
Right before our eyes
Now you know
We are no different than you

From the madness of the world
The skies are turning red
Rivers run deeper now
And sleep inside our head
Now you know
We are no different than you
