Formed in 2012 The Royal began writing and recording songs. These 5 ambitious young men show incredible promise through songs that showcase poignant and powerful writing, both lyrically and musically while still staying in touch with their metal roots. They released their EP, "Origins", in late 2012 and their single, "Blind Eye", in early 2013.
The Royal released their highly anticipated album ‘Dreamcatchers’ on July 31st. The tracks, however, aren’t the only thing this band has addressed properly. The record features guest vocals from Shawn Spann from I The Breather and Ryan Kirby from Fit for a King. The artwork for this album was done by renowned artist Dan Mumford, who has worked for bands like A Day To Remember and Parkway Drive. To top it off they collaborated with American producer Cory Brunneman. All this shows this upcoming band is serious about its ambitions and are determined to make it to the top.
The album contains 13 tracks, including an orchestral version of Origins, the title track of their EP from 2012. The songs definitely cover a great deal of metal and core elements, without being boring or monotone. Riffs that stick, brutal vocals combined with raw backings with tone, recognisable oriental spheres combined with exquisite melancholic parts and big tempo switches. All this will preserve your attention to the very last minute. Together with the release of their video for the title track ‘Dreamcatchers’ it obviously shows that this band is striving for a place among the big ones.
This quickly emerging band are planning a tour in Europe this fall to promote ‘Dreamcatchers’ to a wider and international audience.
