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”...

André Andersen: "This album took a while to complete… mind you, between the very first idea and until the final mix we 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. On that - the production - we definitely did quite a job: all the vital recorded parts were done in analog as well as the final mixing/mastering so there´re no “loudness wars” in-sight; no brickwall limited, over-compressed, lifeless wall of sound… the album breaths just like a real rock album should. I could also go on for hours praising everybody´s contribution – musicians and singers alike - but as my opinion will inevitably be very biased, I would prefer to leave the final judgment to you… after all this album´s been made for you to enjoy (although we´re enjoying it immensely ourselves at the moment)"FREE song download - A Million Ways to Die

To all of you around the world - Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 🎄🎅🎉 ⠀ Once again we would like to thank our fans. Due to your support and appreciation this year we were able to release new studio album ourselves. Both Musically and Historically “Cast In Stone” became an important album: ⠀ ⠀ - It is the ONLY album from Royal Hunt’s rather vast discography which has been released in Europe and NA – relying ENTIRELY on the support from our FANS. ⠀ - We run a pre-ordering campaign where NorthPoint Productions – our home label - did administration of all related processes with a minimal start-up capital. ⠀ ⠀ - To honour those who supported the release we made a special (deluxe) edition of the album containing an extended booklet with a THANK YOU NOTE, instrumental CD, poster, lanyard, pre-listening parties, video and photo updates. ⠀ ⠀ - Each person who possesses the Deluxe Edition of “Cast in Stone” today - is our FRIEND who supported this release. Without your imput this release would not be possible. ⠀ ⠀ - There was a bunch of people who went even further: they supported with a bigger donation and their names can be read in the liner notes of the booklet. ⠀ ⠀ - A few copies of the Deluxe Edition can still be found in our webshop - though video and photo updates are NOT AVAILABLE anymore – You snooze, you lose! 😜 ⠀ Don't snooze in the upcoming year - follow, LIKE and Comment our updates, buy our releases - your support is important - look what we have already achieved together so far! ⠀ #heavymetalchristmas #metalhead
