Royal Hunt are entering the very final stages of preproduction for their new - tenth since their debut in 1991 - studio album (the actual recordings will start by the end of this month). This time the band decided to revisit their roots and incorporate some of the musical values of the 70´s into their songwriting as well as - in order to reinforce that particular atmosphere - employing mostly "retro" means of production (recording in analogue format exclusively being one of them). Music has been described as "an interesting mix of what's been tagged as Classic Rock nowadays (established by Kansas, Genesis, ELP´s earlier works and Deep Purple, Uriah Heep´s classics from the same era) and Royal Hunt´s trademark composition/delivery".

The album is expected to be mixed/mastered sometime during the summer.

OK I guess I should have read more about this. I got the new album here in Tokyo last week and I think it's their worst release ever. I wrote a long comment on the albums page here at metalstorm.

It's bland and simple classic rock/heavy metal. Do not get this album unless you liked paradox 2 and can handle simpler songs with typical vocal melodies.
