Danish hard rock band ROYAL HUNT is putting the finishing touches on its new album at NorthPoint Productions for an early 2008 release. The as-yet-untitled CD, which will be conceptual follow-up to the 1997 release "Paradox", will be mixed later this month at EMI/Medley Studios in Copenhagen, Denmark. Guest singers on the album include Doogie White (RAINBOW, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN),Ian Parry (ELEGY, CONSORTIUM PROJECT),Kenny Lubcke (NARITA) and Henrik Brockmann (ex-ROYAL HUNT, EVIL MASQUERADE).
ROYAL HUNT earlier in the year launched a vocalist search following the departure of John West.
West joined ROYAL HUNT in 1999 during the recording of the "Fear" album and he worked with the band up until its latest release — the "Royal Hunt 2006" live CD/DVD.
ROYAL HUNT released a DVD and double live album, entitled "Royal Hunt 2006" in November 2006. The set was recorded (and filmed) on the historic stage of St. Petersburg, Russia's Music Hall on November 2, 2005. The show, which was witnessed by some 1,500+ enthusiastic fans, lasted about two hours (the band played a wide selection of songs from all of their releases since 1991 and some tracks from the latest CD, "Paper Blood") and was captured by six cameras. The DVD package also includes backstage/pre-production footage as well as interviews with all the bandmembes and their roadcrew. All mixing duties on the double CD were handled by André Andersen at NorthPoint Productions in Copenhagen. The set was mastered by Jan Eliasson at Audio Planet.
ROYAL HUNT's last studio album, "Paper Blood" was recorded at NorthPoint Productions and was mixed at EMI/Medley Studio with André Andersen (keyboards) and Lars Overgaard behind the board.
