Join the celebration of our 25th Anniversary!
Following the tradition after two successful DVD releases – “1996” and “2006” – it´s time for a third one: “2016”. Recorded with 9 HD cameras and top-notch audio equipment in Moscow´s “Izvestiya Hall” during the band´s last year´s world tour the video shows “all-fab-things-Royal”: high energy show in front of a large and enthusiastic crowd, excellent set list, the band in top form and a stunning stage production… add a stellar audio and this package, celebrating Royal Hunt´s 25th Anniversary, is any hard rock fan´s delight.
André Andersen: “25 years later Royal Hunt´s still going strong… who could have imagined that? Not me for sure… a quarter of the century?! Absolutely unreal.
13 studio albums, lots of special EP´s and compilations, 5 live albums, literally countless shows/tours and now the 4th DVD release… lots of ups and downs along the way yet we´re still around, still able to do what we love doing the most – making music.
I always felt that if you do it from your heart, if you stay true to yourself and work hard you´ll be granted this sort of staying power… and yes, we´re all extremely grateful to our fans for giving us an opportunity to create, to improve and to continue our musical journey.
So - once again: push that “play” button, enjoy this DVD and rest assured – the best is yet to come!”

Hey guys, welcome to our 25th Anniversary!
If you're reading and watching this it means that you already joined our pre-ordering campaign and I´d like to thank you for it: the band cannot continue being creative (or even being active at all) without its loyal, supportive fans… we´re just fortunate enough to have you by our side – and it feels great! Don´t be shy: go to the discussion below to say “Hi”, ask questions or share your thoughts about the campaign.
So why a live-DVD and not an EP of sorts or – even better – a new studio album?
Well, it seems like this release was just bound to happen from the very beginning: by the time we hit Moscow (which was placed in the second leg of the tour) the band was on fire after playing so many shows in a row; “Izvestiya Hall” looked nice and all the gear we needed was in place; a large backdrop screen allowed us to use our graphics; there were plenty of lights (although we rented quite a few extras anyway… more is more, right? 🙂 and we just happened to get in touch with a video crew which was capable and available that particular day. And not to forget the sense of tradition: “1996”, “2006”… it had to come out as “2016”…so here you go!
But all good things never come easy (read: cheap) so the completion of the final product took months: the video editing, the necessary conversions for DVD and BluRay, all kinds of authoring, audio mix, mastering for different formats… it went on and on, man I´m so glad that we´re finally done 🙂
On top of that: in order to make this release a bit more special we decided to do something that the record company just couldn´t do (way too expensive) – a full blown Media Book with all the bells and whistles we could add to it… looks great, I hope you´d agree.
I'd sign off (for now) with wishing you lots of fun watching the updates and whatever extras we´ve got in store for you for the duration of this campaign and - by the time the actual package will arrive at your doorsteps – enjoy it… it´s worth the wait, trust me 🙂
