Royal Hunt – Devil’s Dozen Review

A country famed for its butter cookies and mass consumption of pork, Denmark has never been renowned for churning out commercially successful rock/metal bands. As far as that genre goes, former tennis protégé and Metallica bucket banger, Lars Ulrich, remains their most famous export. But back in the 90’s, a progressive minded bunch of Danes called Royal Hunt; a band founded by ivory tickler Andre Andersen, achieved a generous amount of success with the Moving Target and Paradox albums. After a conveyor belt of changes in personal, notably in the vocal department, a welcome stability has returned to the band with singer DC Cooper flexing his tonsils on new album Devil’s Dozen, their thirteenth and his third since his return in 2011.
