Stevie Janevski / Black Majesty

One of Australia’s most popular Heavy Metal bands, Black Majesty dazzled the metal scene with their progressive tinged ‘Sands of Time’ cd (2003), and critically acclaimed power metal opus ‘Silent Company’ cd (2005) the band released ‘Tomorrowland’ in 2007 which saw them play at some of the world’s biggest renowned Heavy Metal festivals.

‘In Your Honour’ (2010) named after the band’s appreciation for their fans, which also saw Black Majesty play one of their biggest headline shows ever - in excess of 5000 people in Jakarta, Indonesia. 'Stargazer' (2012) is both fresh and vintage. Showng off some of the band’s best songwriting, which sees the band cover new ground with excellent musicianship and melodic arrangements whilst still remaining true to their melodic metal style. 'Cross of Thorns' (2015), is heavy with scything riffs and simmering solo's flying at you from all angles all wrapped up in a powerful mix.

2018 sees Black Majesty return with their seventh studio album, 'Children Of The Abyss'. It's fast, epic & intense. It bare's the distinctive mark of the band which has always been the power combined with impressive speed.

I am a Primary School teacher outside of music


"B.i.t.d in the 1980s, I always saw my idols play Jackson guitars. I always loved their slick look. When I finally tried a Jackson I knew it was the original and the best. I love the necks, the feel and sound. They are very comfortable and versatile. I can go from playing rock to metal with ease".
