5.0 out of 5 stars GRAND SOUND! LIMITED FOLLOWING? January 20, 2003
By Mr D.
Format:Audio CD
...
My reviews are generally about worthy albums by the underrated, the unheralded, or the obscure, whose music is likely to be unheard unless purchased. This review is about one of those groups.
Danish progressive metal band, Royal Hunt is not really unheralded nor obscure but they certainly are underrated. Royal Hunt plays a melodic type of progressive metal of mostly medium to fast tempo. They have a large sometimes bombastic sound that is unique in the progressive genre. Also, not necessarily unique but certainly unusual, is the heavy use of keyboards, which together with the american singer, D.C. Cooper, gives the band a sound slightly like a progressive version of ASIA, a popular band of the 70s & 80s. D.C. Cooper subsequently left Royal Hunt after this release to pursue a solo career(his first solo release self-titled D.C. Cooper is very good). Subsequent Royal Hunt releases, also very good, have a capable replacement in John West.
Royal Hunt, while technically not superior to many of their better known contemporaries, such as Stratovarius or Symphony X, I find their music to be more, shall we say, user friendly. While I applaud the latter bands for their musicianship, Royal Hunt seems to be smoother, less jarring and the songwriting, I think, is superior and therefore easier to listen to.
I've had this CD for about two years so I may not sound as enthusiastic as if I had just gotten it two weeks ago, instead of two years ago but I assure you this is a very, very solid album. This particular release has 15 songs and they are all top shelf. My favorite song by Royal Hunt is Fear on the Fear album but the overall quality of this album is better. Outstanding songs on this album are Time, Epilogue, Last Goodbye, 1348 and all the rest.

5.0 out of 5 stars D.C. Cooper's first Royal Hunt album July 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
By 1996, Royal Hunt had pretty much established their keyboard-heavy melodic metal sound. They just needed one ingredient to help them reach major (for this kind of music) success. They needed a better singer. While previous vocalist Henrik Brockmann did an admirable job on the band's previous albums (Land of Broken Hearts and Clown in the Mirror), Royal Hunt needed a charismatic vocalist with more power and range.

Enter D.C. Cooper.

D.C. Cooper was exactly what Royal Hunt needed. His soaring melodic voice and charismatic stage presence helped catapult the band to major success, particularly in metal-loving Japan. His presence on the band's third album, 1996's Moving Target, was a dramatic improvement over the early Royal Hunt albums.

Musically, Moving Target is very similar to its predecessors. It is a keyboard-heavy melodic metal album that also shows some progressive metal elements. Band leader Andre Anderssen's songwriting continued to improve, and the number of "filler" tracks again decreased. Indeed, many of the tracks on Moving Target are considered the band's best.

D.C. Cooper's amazing vocal performance is what steals the show though. His power and range fit the music perfectly, and made a good album extraordinary. I still have a hard time believing it was his first ever album. I've had the good fortune of hearing D.C. live twice, and can happily confirm that his voice is just as amazing live as it is on the albums.

By A. Fors
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a great release from the Denmark band Royal Hunt. They combine some very classy keyboard sounds with some pounding rock. DC Cooper has an amazing voice well suited to the music. A must have for all Prog fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Great Album August 28, 2002
By dream28
Format:Audio CD
This is a really great album. I listened to Far Away and Time on launch.com before buying the album and those two really sounded magnificent. To tell the truth I prepared myself for an average album with just two hits . To my surprise, I was wrong. Double Live in Japan is their concert record, listen to that one too. If you are a melodic rock and progressive rock fan like me (or if you like Halloween, Malmsteen, Rush, Dream Theater) you'll love this one too.
