Been wanting to submit this band for a while, but I've been trying to find more about them, as well as more samples.  Very little luck.

Saw them live at the "Colorado Creative Rock Festival" in Sept. 2009, along with Singularity, Every Waking Hour, and Jamie Krutz.  Picked up their self-titled debut (and as far as I can tell only release).

From my perspective the album is very melodic, laid back, crossover prog, with lots of lead violin and occasional lead guitar.  Not an excellent release by any means, but appealing in its own way.  I don't find them to be derivative of any prog band in particular.  They are from the Denver, Colorado area.

Here's the track listing and performers from the album:

Majestic X
1. Reflections of Gray
2. Distant Train
3. A Lover's Sin
4. Never Too Far
5. Destiny Calls
6. A Little More Of A Lot Of
7. Enlivening Spirit In Me
8. If I Could Be
9. You And I
10. Ultimate Charm

Victor Gregory: Vocals, Guitars
Eugene Fodor: Violin
Craig Meyer: Drums, Percussion
Doug Krause: Keyboards
Bob Fisher: Bass, Saxophone

Here are a couple of live versions from YouTube:

"If I Could Be"


"Destiny Calls"


From their myspace page:
"Welcome to Majestic X! When internationally acclaimed classical violinist and Paganini winner Eugene Fodor got together with singer and guitar rocker Victor Gregory (Cold Moon), and drummer Craig Meyer Majestic x was born. With the amazing producer Mark S. Berry (David Bowie, Billy Idol, Kool & the Gang, Yes, etc.), the debut Majestic X album took flight. Now Majestic X welcomes classical acoustic guitarist and singer Leon Esperas, bassist Clifford Fisher and multi instrumentalist, singer, songwriter Jamie Krutz on piano & keyboards Check out our video links below. ..http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LnlvdXR1YmUuY29tL3dhdGNoP3Y9XzFpMGZZMHVMcEU ..http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LnlvdXR1YmUuY29tL3dhdGNoP3Y9X"

The myspace page also has a stream of the lead track from the album, "Reflections of Gray".

The album is available at amazon.com.

It appears that Eugene Fodor passed away in 2011.

Infocat, I'd say your appraisal is spot on.
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

Cool, thanks!
Where did you find the information in the second paragraph?

Here's the link to their PA page for those as lazy as me:  http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=7506.

Probably from facebook: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Majestic-X/248801208478816 - the announcement of the passing of Eugene, and the recruitment of a new violinist and keyboardist (July 15th 2011) was pretty well the last status update that was made. There were a couple of YouTube shares following it in early August 2011, but then it all went very quiet...and remains so to this day.
