Thy Majestie, formed in Palermo, Sicily, Italy, is a symphonic power metal band based on a project from Giuseppe Bondì and Claudio Diprima from 1998. Their first demo was titled "Sword, Shields and Crown". It did not meet with much success, but after a year of work their second demo, "Perpetual Glory", finally began receiving attention. They are then picked up by Scarlet Records, a big company from Milan: after a troubled period their debut, "The Lasting Power", breaks through with the Thy Majestie name. It's a real success, though they are mostly appreciated outside of Italy.
