“Longing to meet all MV fans on tour…”

"I started to play guitar at the age of 9, after had seen a Gary Moore video - Out in the Fields. When I saw that music video I knew that music and guitar playing was my thing! I started to practise with my father who also plays the guitar and noticed that I became better and better by the time!

When I was 15 I turned on the TV and saw this rock video with Skid Row -18 and Life. That was the first time I ever heard a man singing like that, with those killer notes that he did. I said to myself: "Wow! I really wanna sing like him...!" That was when my singing started.
I took lessons, joined a choir and started singing every day! I started to listen more and more to the vocals in every band. When I found Helloween and Stratovarius, my days of soft rock were over…

I joined a band in school when I was 15. The style was early Helloween meets Edguy, and I became very fond of it... I started to write songs to the band, and discovered the fun in writing own music!

After some years in music school I had become more of an "all man musician" who could play almost everything decent. My song writing had developed to a more advanced level i.e. musical songs and movie music. Last year I come to think that movie soundtracks mixed with melodic Power Metal would be very cool...
I started my own project: "ReinXeed - The Metal Opera" inspired by Rhapsody, Avantasia and movie soundtracks. Daniel Eskilsson (Majestic Vanguard) heard my songs and contacted me. He showed some of my songs to Christian Rivel, and after that I received a label deal with Rivel Records!

Just recently Daniel asked me if I was interested in becoming Majestic Vanguards new lead singer! I was very happy when he asked me, and did not hesitate for a second to join the band...
I really enjoy the music MV plays and I’ve been a fan of the band for a while now. My favorite track is “The Great Eternity” by the way…
I’m looking forward to this new challenge and longing to meet all of you MV fans on tour!
