Royal Hunt: A Life to Die For

Review3486_RH_ALtDF

Frontiers/BAM

12th studio album of international metal band ROYAL HUNT sounds in a way connected to their previous outing ”Show Me How to Live”. Most people probably ask themselves if this release will come close to a classic like ”Paradox”. Nevertheless it is an improvement on ”Show Me How to Live” from the first chord on.

ROYAL HUNT will always be a lot of Andre Andersen. The keyboard master has put the guitars of Jonas Larsen in the shadow, but in opener ”Hell Comes Down From Heaven” it feels only natural. There will of cause be more keys than guitars in virtually every song, and for once I don´t disapprove. My only objection is the rather European Song Contest sounding ”Running Out of Tears. The arrangement is fine but the pop of that song is probably est forgotten. On the other hand we have the opener, ”One Minute Left to Live”, ”Won´t Trust, Won´t Fear, Won´t Beg” and the closing title track. The latter is pure seven minute majesty. The musicianship is stellar through and through, but this album will still reside a bit in the shade of their label mates RING OF FIRE in 2014.
