The release date is finally here, so while your physical copy is on the way – why wait any longer? Log in to get your free download of the album right now in the store – royalhunt.com/store (You should be able to see the downloads after logging in).
As you can see…we also prepared a special dish for the release party…
While “Cast in Stone” keeps getting fantastic reviews across the board we´ve been made aware of the fact that its darker, deeper sound we chose to use this time might not come across clearly enough while played on some less advanced sound systems (and maybe not all of us love that warm, analog-tape-based sound), we decided to include a lighter/slimmer mastered version of the album as an extra bonus for all who order from us directly.
Enjoy and fell free to comment – let us know what you think.
loudandproud.it – 85 / 100 – ‘Cast In Stone’ rappresenta un nuovo capitolo vincente nella storia dei Royal Hunt grazie a riff granitici, melodie neoclassiche, una voce stellare e ritornelli potenti. Sempre gli stessi elementi, apparentemente, ma legati tra loro con uno stile che rende quest’album uno tra i migliori pubblicati nella prima parte dell’anno.

0dayrox.blog – “The new CD picks up where Royal Hunt most celebrated albums (‘Moving Target’ or ‘Paradox’) ended, but also reveals a new side of the band. Melodic and catchy as before, yet with a great atmosphere and a revitalized imaginary both in lyrics and playing.
The album grows from track to track, from the outstanding catchy opener “Fistful Of Misery” over the bombastic “The Wishing Well” to the epic finale “Save Me II”. READ FULL: https://0dayrox.blogspot.dk/2018/02/ROYAL-HUNT-Cast-In-Stone-Japanese-Edition-2018-Magnum-Ten-Bob-Catley.html
Metal Kaoz – 9 / 10 – “Precision to the max, both when it comes to musical performance and production. And that’s another thing I love with ROYAL HUNT; their sound is basic and organic, the dynamics are there. It’s full and modern but still vibrant, genial”.

Stormbringer.at – 4.5. / 5.0 – “Für mich ist dieses Album ein musikalisches Resümee der Karriere der Dänen mit all den typischen Markenzeichen und es empfiehlt sich „Cast in Stone“ mehrere Male zu hören und es bewusst wirken zu lassen, denn es braucht die Zeit, um beim Hörer durch seine komplexen Gesamteindruck die volle nachhaltige Wirkung zu erzielen. Hammer” – READ FULL: https://www.stormbringer.at/reviews/14324/royal-hunt-cast-in-stone.html
Metallized Magazine (DK) Feb.2018 – 9 /10 – “Efter 25 år i prog. rockens internationale liga har Royal Hunt stadig innovation og nytænkning at byde på.

angrymetalguy.com – 3.5 / 5.0 – “…light years ahead of most of their peers and exceptionally easy to love. Let he who hates a good wank cast the first stone.”
