Royal Hunt – Cast in stone
Label: NorthPoint productions
How to progress and yet keep the identity which took over 25 years to establish ?
How to create the ever evolving – and at times rather complicated – musical compositions and wrap it up in an accessible format with that recognizable sound ?
Royal Hunt does it with ease and now – with their 14th studio album – proves once again that creativity and staying true to yourself can work hand-in-hand and produce some astonishing results: will you please welcome the ultimate proof of that “Cast in Stone”… the album you’ll be listening to again, again and again !!
This 14th album took a while to complete… mind you, between the very first idea and until the final mix the band did two tours and released two live-albums…
so this one´s been in the making for quite some time.
In a way it´s been very practical: you could work on it for a while, than go on doing something else and then come back later to re-evaluate what´s been done before.
As a result all songs on the album are solid and well crafted, showing every aspect of Royal Hunt today =>
originality, catchy hooks, strong melodies, great musicianship and larger-than-life production.
“Cast In Stone” Deluxe Edition box set is a music experience including the studio album and an instrumental / karaoke version of the album on the bonus Cd,
extended booklet, poster and lanyard – all in a cardboard jacket.
You can watch a lyric video for the track “A million ways to die” here !
Fistful of misery
The last soul alive
The wishing well
Cast in stone
A million ways to die
Rest in peace
Save me II
