Royal Hunt Posts Second Studio Diary Video

Royal Hunt posted the second video in a video diary series chronicling the band's recording of the upcoming new album "A Life to Die For." The album is set for release via Frontiers Records on November 29th (EU) and December 3rd (North America). The track list and album art can be seen over at this location. The album will be available in standard CD as well as a lavish digipak edition including an exclusive bonus DVD shot during the band’s last tour.

"A Life to Die For" is the band's 12th studio release, and it is a concept album not in the lyrical sense, but musically, which sees the band expand their musical boundaries and bring their symphonic and grandiose musical element to the max employing a large number of classical/orchestra players in the studio as well as a large choir.

Once again the band's U.S. singer DC Cooper will see his trademark vocals shine throughout the songs penned by keyboard maestro Andre Andersen. The song writing and performances represent Royal Hunt at it's symphonic best

Andersen commented on the album: "This album is all that any fan of this kind of music might dream about: strong songs with huge choruses, infectious riffs, technical yet memorable instrumental parts, stellar production this time mighty reinforced by classical instruments and – of course - instantly recognizable style."

Royal Hunt Unveils More Album Details

Danish progressive act Royal Hunt has announced that the band's new album "Show Me How To Live" will be released on November 29th, 2011 (North America) and December 2nd, 2011 (EU) via Frontiers Records.

As a companion to the new album release, Frontiers Records is also issuing a double DVD entitled “Future Coming From the Past." This makes widely available two very rare items which were only released in Japan. The first DVD is entitled “1996” and was recorded live in Japan just after the release of the band's "Moving Target” album. The second DVD "Paradox - Closing the Chapter" was recorded in 1998 and marked the end of the original DC Cooper era for Royal Hunt.

Royal Hunt founder and keyboardist Andre Andersen commented on rejoining with DC Cooper, the American singer who sang on the band's two most successful releases "Moving Target" and "Paradox":

“We started chatting on Skype from time to time and that’s how the idea of doing on a mini tour came about. After playing some shows we realized that the chemistry was still there and we decided to continue. The new songs are continuing right from where we left it in the first place, so far it sounds great. It will have some qualities of our previous albums 'Moving Target' and 'Paradox', but you can certainly expect some cool updates and new twists!”

The track listing for “Show Me How To Live” is:

1. Introduction

Royal Hunt Signs To Scarlet Records

Danish power metal band Royal Hunt has posted the first song, "Shadowman," from their upcoming new album "X." Listen to the song on their MySpace page.

Royal Hunt has also recently signed a deal with Scarlet Records for the European release of their new album ‘X.’ Keyboardist André Andersen comments on the new album, “This album came out of our love for the 70´s music (tagged as Classic Rock nowadays) – from Kansas, Genesis and ELP to Uriah Heep and Deep Purple - music which was/is very adventurous while just a tad naïve at the same time (as some might say). We all are notoriously resistant to categorize it in any way, form or shape, but (if hard pressed) would go as far as saying that it’s definitely much more hard rock than metal and if by ‘progressive’ you might mean some odd time signatures here and there as well as random key changes – sure, there’re tons of them here… as well as really basic, simple stuff – so go figure.” The album will be released in June 2010 and “If you’re into pre-MTV, pre-computer/digital but pure quality rock – this thing’s been tailor made for you!"
