I would like some feedback before doing a somewhat complex change.
The band ReinXeed recently changed its name to Majestica (https://www.facebook.com/Majesticametal/photos/a.10150926943339628/10157173188214628).
ReinXeed was founded by Tommy Johansson, and in this band, he used to perform under the name “Tommy ReinXeed”. There is currently a separate artist entry for Tommy ReinXeed.
In the past, I already considered merging Tommy Johansson and Tommy ReinXeed, because “Tommy ReinXeed” is not a music project by itself (the project is ReinXeed, the band). Also, I recently found that he contributed to some tracks under the name “Tommy ‘ReinXeed’ Johansson” (https://open.spotify.com/track/4sVJvu65QxzvaYEsz7rlGK?si=NyM1jj6bQAqgSCeMrJcegg), which makes it hard to choose between the two.
Now, I think it becomes necessary to do this merge, because it is unlikely that he continues to perform as Tommy ReinXeed in Majestica. Otherwise, we will end up in a strange situation where Tommy ReinXeed was a member of Majestica until 2019 and that Tommy Johansson is a member since 2019.
So my plan is the following:
- Merge Tommy ReinXeed into Tommy Johansson.
- Change the name under which he is credited to “Tommy ReinXeed” for old ReinXeed albums (unless there is an option to keep the previous name while doing the merge?)
- Rename ReinXeed to Majestica, add ReinXeed as an alias.
- Change “Artist as credited” to ReinXeed for old albums.
