I love this band 21 décembre 2013
Par Koala - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
Whether it's DC Cooper, Mark Boals or John West, this band has my heart. So melodic and well crafted. Andre Anderson's compositions are beautiful. And as Art says "one of their best." All the band members are smooth musicians indeed.

A solid album, but not essential 4 janvier 2014
Par Richard Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
The real orchestration is a nice touch and adds some warmth over the album, but Andersen's compositions are very predictable and reminiscent of previous songs. Also missing are the hooks from albums like Moving Target and Paradox. That being said it's a fairly good album, though I'm not sure I like it as much as the previous album, Show Me How To Live.

It's not Show Me How To Live, but... 2 février 2014
Par Brian W. Ewert - Publié sur Amazon.com

But it's still a decent offering. My favorite tracks are 1, 3, 5, 6 and 7. It seems like a "keep the ball rolling" issue meant to appease the masses until another full blown studio production is completed (Pretty Maids is doing the same thing right now :) I've been a fan of RH since day one but lost interest after D.C. left. Loved D.C.'s solo album but never got hooked by either RH or Silent Force. Then "Show Me How To Live" came out and WOW. It was just amazing. A Life TDF is ok though. Sadly the DVD that comes with it is a total joke, so you might think about being patient, getting a good listen on line and then buying a few select MP3's to save yourself some cabbage.

Could Have Been Another Great Royal Hunt Release, Except...... 1 juin 2015
Par PacificBlue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
As an ardent fan of Royal Hunt, I eagerly add their releases to my collection as fast as they come available. And it was no different when this, Royal Hunt's 12th studio CD, under the magnificent Frontiers Records label came to market. Not as glorious as RH's 1995 masterpiece "Moving Target" or 1997's "Paradox" there are still many strong points to "A Life To Die For" that are standouts. One of course is the voice of vocal god D.C. Cooper, the talents of the band members, and the songwriting of band leader and principal songwriter Andre Anderssen. But there was just one thing......

The telltale music style of Royal Hunt is here in abundance. The sweeping choruses, the flowing guitar solos, the rich keyboards, the layers of vocals, and the orchestration that is indeed all Royal Hunt. What is different here is that it seemed at times the band was holding something back. The result is the music of 'Life To Die For," doesn't come across as strong as their 1990's decade of perfect releases. Take "Moving Target" for example. A truly magnificent release, "Moving Target's" "The Last Goodbye," "1348," "Far Away," "Making A Mess," "Step By Step," "Stay Down," and "Autograph." each feature in droves all the passion, all the emotions, and all the fantastic musicianship that the members of Royal Hunt had to offer and all of these things were put front and center in each one of those songs. Same can be said for "Paradox's" tracks "Silent Scream," :Martial Arts," "Long Way Home," "River Of Pain," "Message To God," and "Tearing Down The World," Heart and soul was put into creating those songs, so the "soul" of the track was felt by the listener, and it made for a glorious, sent from the heavens collection of music. Here on "A Life To Die For" it would have been nice to feel, hear, experience, and love the same glorious vibe that was so prevalent on "Paradox" and "Moving Target.'

But let's get back on track. This is Royal Hunt, and make no mistake about it, they are still one of the finest melodic metal / heavy rock bands out there. "Running Out Of Tears," "One Minute Left To Live," the CD highlight "Sign Of Yesterday" were all excellent.

I will never stop being a Royal Hunt fan. With a CD collection numbering in the hundreds, I am proud to say that Royal Hunt has released albums that will forever reign as some of my favorites. In fact, on a wall in my family room, I have a collection of some of my favorite LPs framed, and one of those LPs is Royal Hunt's "Show Me How To Live." Something about Royal Hunt I never tire of. This is a strong addition to this band's repertoire, and fans of RH do indeed need to make this part of their collection. But still, I wish this had the sounds and vibe of RH's magnificent CDs that came from years past.
Royal Hunt: A Life to Die For (2013) 25 juillet 2015
Par Olav M. Björnsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Danish band ROYAL HUNT have been a going concern for more than a quarter of a century, and as such merits a description as a veteran band at this point. They have twelve studio albums to their name, with a thirteenth just about to hit the market. "A Life to Die For" is their twelfth studio album, and was released through Italian label Frontier Music in 2013.

Royal Hunt is a band that have always been described as residing somewhere within the metal spectrum, with power metal, progressive metal and symphonic metal the most common descriptions given. The albums I've come across earlier have, arguably, been of a more progressive metal vein, but in the case of this 2013 production I'd say that the greater majority of the compositions have the strongest ties to the symphonic metal genre, with power metal as the main undercurrent.

As one would expect from a veteran act, this is a production that is well made and well produced, the technical aspects of this album have a high standard with impeccable quality. While perhaps not all that important, these aspects of a production does elevate the material quite a bit, the difference between a poor and a pleasant or a pleasant and a good end listener experience can often be tracked down to this, even if mix and production will always be coating and gloss that adds a final sheen. In this case these are important aspects of the album though, and not only due to the quality of the compositions as such, but due to the richly layered arrangements employed throughout that demands a detailed attention to mix and balance.

The material here basically revolved around digital orchestration and lead vocals. Royal Hunt have a strong lead vocalist in D. C. Cooper, and they make sure that his qualities are emphasized throughout. The rich orchestration courtesy of keyboardist André Andersen is still the main dominating trait though, his keyboard arrangements a key aspect of all compositions throughout.

The songs actually appears to revolve a bit too much around the vocals and keyboards as I experience it though, as the bass, drums and guitars are toned down quite a bit and with little room for other instrument details to add subtler details or depth to the songs as they unfold. Combined with a smooth production and a certain tendency to singalong chorus sections with more of an AOR orientation the end result is, at least for me, just too smooth for me at times. Pleasant and well made, but lacking that slight edge that elevates the total experience to a higher place. Details and depth are the key words I guess, as well as a lack of marked contrasts.

But when the blend does get a few additional details added in, the end result does become all the more striking. The dramatic impact surges that is a mainstay feature on opening track Hell Comes Down From Heaven a good example of that, as are the richer orchestrated movements and stronger emphasis on quirkier instrument details on concluding and title track A Life to Die For. Both of those creations represent the 2013 edition of Royal Hunt at their best in my opinion, and should be regarded as the signal tracks on this CD as far as I'm concerned.

At the end of the day I find "A Life to Die For" to be a somewhat uneven production, always smooth and elegant, but for my personal taste somewhat lacking in the details and sophistication department for this album to come across as a vital and vibrant production. Those with a taste for progressive rock and metal exclusively may want to approach this one with a bit of caution due to that, but if you have a strong affection for symphonic metal, and a particular taste for well produced, orchestration dominated specimens of that kind in particular, then this CD can be regarded as a fairly safe purchase option for your musical needs.
