Metalcore. Some Different Kind of Metalcore band releasing Full Length early 2014. Download the EP Origins for FREE here theroyalofficial.com/
Five driven musicians, each in their own way trying to achieve something in today’s metal/hardcore scene. Their paths cross and they realize they share the same passion and goal in music. Chemistry takes over and The Royal is born.
Shortly after forming in late 2012, this metalcore band hailing from the The Netherlands, began to write and record songs. These young men show incredible promise through songs that showcase poignant and powerful writing, both lyrically and musically while still staying in touch with their hardcore/punk roots. Their music displays a well-done balance between metal, melody and strength. Given their ability to draw the listener in with brutally honest lyrics about life, relationships, and struggle, the band shows solidarity for their future as a band to be taken seriously.
The first shows they ever played consisted of a show tour through Holland with the most talented bands of their country, covering the whole of Holland. And with not even a year under their belt they have managed to play with names like; Parkway Drive, Asking Alexandria, The Ghost Inside and Funeral For A Friend. They played on Jera On Air 2013 and Breakfest 2013. With many more tours and festivals coming up they are planning to cover a vast area of europe before the end of 2014.
They released their EP, "Origins", in late 2012 and their single, "Blind Eye", in early 2013. They are currently planning a full length to be released in 2014 so keep an eye out for these guys because you dont want to miss out on that.
Their live performance can be described as energetic and crazy. If you have not yet seen The Royal you owe it to yourself to stop with whatever you are doing and go to one of their shows immediately!
