After months of hard work, metalcore band The Royal released their first full length called Dreamcatchers. The album 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.
