Land of Broken Hearts. Story

Dear friends, we’d like to share some really exciting news with you… It is especially vinyl record collectors and our long-time fans who have been waiting for this to happen. We continue the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Royal Hunt with the very special re-issue of our very first album – 💿 Land of Broken Hearts from 1991 – on vinyl LP by our friends – Night of the Vinyl Dead.

Members of our Fan Club will get the most intriguing updates as we are going to dive DEEP into 1991 and the history of creation of our the very first album. This time we’ll invite you to walk downstairs into the basement of NorthPoint Studio to open some really dusty boxes and see WHAT (or WHOM) will we find from the Land of Broken Hearts era. Are you in?

Unreleased Song – New Recording


Land of Broken Hearts: Story. Continues…

Another bit of fun while continuing our little journey “down the memory lane”:

André Andersen: While going through my – rather vast – archives I picked up some tapes which we recorded back in the day; I guess the one I listened through was approx. from 1990. Lots of songs, lots of ideas – all of them are raw and unfinished, some are just bits and pieces of a drum beat, bass line, accord sequences… not much to go after, but you´d get an overall idea.

Anyway, one of the pieces was called “What Goes Around Comes Around”: a rocky riff, “gang choir” and lyrics to match… I guess it could have been a good companion for songs like “Running Wild” or “Wasted Time”. Of course the actual recording sounded clumsy and overall quality was dreadful, but “savable” for this particular cause.

I called Henrik and asked him if he wanted to put a new swing on it and – as he, to my surprise, was game – I asked some of my friends (including Ritchie´s and Yngwee´s bastard son – Jonas Larsen) – to add some musical noises to this relic… fortunately, they all agreed 

In conclusion: this song´s definitely not what Royal Hunt is about today, but it gives you a hint of what was going on while we were preparing for recordings of our debut – LOBH – and yet surprisingly relevant today (at least Henrik, Jonas and I think so  Hell, we had so much fun that we almost agreed on doing something like that (no, not from the archives, but something new) in the future – just for laughs, who knows? :->
