The new single and video ‘Deathwatch’ from The Royal features Ryo Kinoshita of Crystal Lake and is the third single taken from the studio album of the same name, which will be released on March 8 via Long Branch Records.
The Dutch metal band keep exploring the wide variety of today's metal scene. After the release of their first album, Seven, which was hailed for its catchy riffs and uplifting songs -The Royal played numerous club shows and festivals across 25 European countries during a two-month tour. This was followed by a series of intercontinental shows during a four-week tour in Japan and China.
Writing songs on tour, and five guys discussing rather heavy topics at times, The Royal decided to explore the darker side of metalcore on their new album. The new record is a mix of catchy riffs with heavy breakdowns and ambient sounds. There is a lot of raw emotion put into this record, in which the band processes what has been a very emotional past year.
