It's amazing to think about the years since the Royal Hunt debut and even more to check how their sound hasn't changed that much since. Much guilt / thanks to the keyboards of André Andersen that mark and always marked the sound of the band. In 1992 the progressive metal was not yet a "thing" and the traditional hard'n'heavy was already giving the last, being quickly restituded by the more alternative sounds. The Danish band has always been owes to this and their sound has always been here, which is still admirable. "Land Of Broken Hearts" is a good progressive heavy metal album, always with that hint of melody so typical of hard rock. Henrik Brockmann's voice is not as striking as D.C. Cooper's but it fits perfectly. Reissued now by the band's own label, this is an album that fans of the band already know. If you don't know, there are no more excuses. In addition, we have some acoustic bonus tracks. - World of Metal

Message from the band: “Dear friends,

We´ve been totally overwhelmed by the amount of requests reg. “Land of Broken Hearts” – re-issue of 2018 – which was then quickly sold out mostly at the stage of pre-orders.

We didn’t expect that much interest in our older albums – BUT – if that´s the case – we might try to continue re-issuing those albums in the same fashion: with extended booklets, bonus tracks and more inside info on each release.

The re-run of “Land of Broken Hearts” is due in october 2021. If you missed your copy in 2018 – you can now reserve one here “.

The official video – “Land Of Broken Hearts”

While going through the archives in search of bonus material in 2018, some raw video footage was found which was shot all the way back in 1992 but never used: the band performing “Age Gone Wild” from their debut. The film has been restored/edited and finally published, giving all ROYAL HUNT fans a unique opportunity to re-discover this once lost and now – fortunately – newly found gem:
