From http://royalhunt.com/ .... 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)" We’re happy to finally be able to let you know the worldwide release date for “Cast In Stone” – our new album will be out on the 21st of February, 2018 on NorthPoint Productions, in Japan on King Records on the 7th of February 2018. We encourage our most devoted fans to support the release by joining the pre-ordering campaign for the Deluxe Edition of “Cast In Stone”.
