From the  band

Message from the band: “Thinking back to the release date of the “Part 1” back in 2020 makes you realize what a crazy time we all went through just during the last two years: who could have imagined that our “Dystopia” – project would reflect the harsh reality in such detail? And the madness is still ongoing.
In any case, “Dystopia – Part 2” is even more relevant today than ever: we followed the general concept yet filled it up with images of current events in order to make it resonate with every person, everybody living through 2020 to 2022 and watching insanity to unfold in real time”.

André Andersen: “Believe me, the band and it`s respected guests put everything on the line on this record, the amount of hours we all invested in planning and executing this piece is simply mind blowing. Actually, as I´m writing this note, the process is still ongoing: there´re still plenty of tracks to sort out, plenty of new ones to record and hundreds of decisions to make but – already at this stage – it´s hard to ignore the sheer energy/power impact encapsulated in this piece of work”.

Take your seats. Everybody is welcome. Let’s have fun! 

Latest album

DYSTOPIA – PART 1” was released on December 16th, 2020 via King Records (Japan/SE Asia) and on January 15th via NorthPoint Productions (Europe/N & S America).  A concept album offering a considerable expansion of the band´s trademark sound.

About the album.

“RH burst out with Paper Blood in 2005- a furiously melodic gem which playfully danced among 80s hard rock, prog metal, and power metal. John West charges through these tracks with an arena-ready voice of the gods and he’s the main reason why there’s an 80s flavor to this, aside from the guitar crunch and attitude. His voice isn’t quite as operatic as most power metal singers and isn’t as clean as most prog metal singers. Instead, he sounds more like a huskier Bon Jovi or any number of AOR vocalists, which isn’t a bad thing. Get it out of your head right now that that’s a bad thing.

Throughout the entire album the keyboards buzz right through your body, severing bone and muscle in the most pleasurable way possible. They’re not brutal, but the tone used is so heavy and astral that it makes you think twice about pissing on them as leading instruments. If you’re going to listen to music like this, you should expect to hear keyboards and like them in healthy quantities. The good thing is that this album loves them, but they’re not flowery and there’s a solid riff base supporting all this. I dare you to sit through any of the three instrumentals without going through the rest of your life with a brain of fried mush.

Lyrically, Paper Blood is about money and how it practically runs through all of our veins, capillaries, and arteries, figuratively speaking. It took me a while to figure out what the hell paper blood is, but when it dawned on me it was marvelous. The social consciousness prog is known for is well on display here, rest assured. Songs such as “Break Your Chains”(which was nominated for a best metal song on a list a couple years ago) and “Never Give Up” also deliver powerful messages of self-actualization and self-empowerment. We sure need that nowadays.

Royal Hunt continue to show they are a unique voice in progressive metal, striking a steady balance between brawn and elegance, retro and modern”. – review by Necrobobsledder / www.metal-archives.com

The band stated: “As everybody´s staying home with a very limited access to any kind of sport activities, we decided to poke a little fun on this whole situation by ordering some personalized team t-shirts… you know, the ones with your name on the back.

The original idea was to make one for each member of the band, but why – as our team reasonably asked – why not include some of our fans to the list?

ROYAL HUNT: ENTIRE CATALOGUE released on DIGITAL DOWNLOAD and STREAMING services

While ROYAL HUNT have isolated themselves in a studio working on the new CONCEPT album – their ENTIRE CATALOGUE has been released on digital download and streaming services like iTunes, Spotify, Amazon music, etc. More information and direct links can be found at royalhunt.com/discography

“…go ahead, have fun during the quarantine (and beyond) – listen and share with friends… Stay safe \m/” – say bandmembers on their Facebook page.

ROYAL HUNT: New CONCEPT ALBUM is in the works says ANDRÈ ANDERSEN.

ROYAL HUNT is in a process of recording a new concept album, scheduled for release in 2020 (Japan / SE Asia – KING Records, rest of the world – TBA). As usual, most of the production activities were moved into NorthPoint Studio while mix/mastering facilities will be appointed later. The band hints monumental conceptual offering, which supposed to expand their familiar yet constantly evolving soundscape into previously uncharted territories. With their 15th studio release, ROYAL HUNT’s dead-set to deliver a masterpiece, which should once again rise the bar for modern progressive hard rock genre.

André Andersen: “The next Royal Hunt album is in the works and – while most of it is still in a state of a “sort-of-controlled- chaos” – I´d say it´s probably our biggest production to date… the amount of tracks is simply staggering. Yes, it´s a concept album and yes, there´re some special guests on it and yes – already on this demo stage – this thing sounds huge (even by our standards). So fear not: we´re still around and we´re rocking just as hard – if not harder – as we usually do.”
