‘The Royal’ – ‘Dreamcatchers’ Guitar Play-Through Video Posted Online


The Royal_TwitterDutch based metalcore band The Royal has posted a guitar play-through video for ‘Dreamcatchers’. The track comes of their first full length “Dreamcatchers” which has been self-released on July 31th 2014. The video can be seen below.

The Royal will play at our own Mauce.nl festival (In celebration of the 10th anniversary of our webzine) next month, Saturday June 18th. Other performing bands will be: Pantokrator (Death Metal from Sweden), My Silent Wake (Gothic Doom Metal from the United Kingdom), The Royal (Metalcore from Holland), La-Ventura (Melodic Metal band from Holland), Undawn (Metalcore from Holland), The Memory Remains (80’s/90’s metal from Holland). The festival will be held at Naxt Stage, Almelo, the Netherlands. For tickets and information see the poster below.

“Dreamcatchers” contains 13 tracks, mixed and engineered by the American producer Cory Brunnemann. The songs cover riffs that stick, brutal vocals combined with raw backing tones, recognizable oriental spheres combined with exquisite melancholic parts and big tempo switches. Given their ability to draw the listener in with brutally honest lyrics supported by technical but easy listening instrumentals, The Royal shows solidarity for their future as a band to be taken very seriously.

But that’s not all, The Royal worked together with big artist like Shawn Spann ( I The Breather ) and Ryan Kirby ( Fit For A King ) who both have a featured part on this album. For the artwork of “Dreamcatchers”, they collaborated with none other than illustrator and designer Dan Mumford who also created artwork for bands like; Parkway Drive, A Day To Remember and Miss May I.
