Chances are pretty slim that you’ve ever heard of the third tape on this picture…we´re talking REAL retro here.

Royal Hunt Tape Cassets

Some of you might still have Land of Broken Hearts or Clown in the Mirror on tape from the early nineties, but unlikely ever seen the third one, which happened to be the very beginning of Royal Hunt.

Royal Hunt Demo Tape

This demo tape was recorded prior to the release of Land of Broken Hearts in 1991; cassettes were handed out to some of the record labels, promoters and press, so – in a way – this demo introduced the name Royal Hunt to Scandinavian rock music circles at that time.

The cover was created by Steen Mogensen (the image has later been re-designed to the current version of Dragon Logo by Martin Burridge in 1991) The tape contains four known songs which consequently were included into future albums. Can anybody name those songs? Ok, you can at least guess? 🙂

The answer will be revealed in the next issue of the newsletter.
