Time for another band from the Continent, and one of the gems I stumbled across by accident over two years ago. I am talking about "Royal Hunt", a progressive rock band formed in 1991 when keyboard player/songwriter Andre Andersen emigrated from Russia and joined up with Danish musicians Herick Brockman/vocals, Steen Morgenson/bass guitar and Kenneth Olsen/drums and then session guitarist Jacob Kjaer joined the band full time. However that line-up did not last long and Andre Andersen is the only original member left. He was a child prodigy, started playing piano at the age of 5. He can pretty much play any instrument now, and reminds me of Arjen Lucassen of Ayreon fame. Anyway I still consider Royal Hunt to be a Danish band so that is how I am going to classify them. I now have 5 of their albums, and I like the keyboards especially they remind me a bit of another band I grew up with Saga, but with their own unique flavor. Here's the title track of their first album.
