Danish power & progressive metal masters Royal Hunt have released a lyric video for the song “The Wishing Well”. The track is featured in the band latest album Cast in Stone, their 14th record released February of this year. Over most of that decade-spanning career, Royal Hunt have stuck to their original formula, taking rock sensibilities and applying them to prog-metal, carving their own style of bombastic, symphonic and at times rather complicated compositions. You can now watch the video below.
Formed in 1989, ROYAL HUNT is the brainchild of keyboardist and main songwriter André Andersen, whose goal was to combine basic values of classic rock with progressive, current musical elements.
André Andersen, the band’s keyboardist and leader comments: “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, then 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 brick-wall 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)”
