ROYAL HUNT Announce New Guitarist

Denmark's ROYAL HUNT have announced the addition of guitarist Marcus Jidell (JEKYLL & HYDE, THE RING) to the group's ranks. "Armed to the teeth with every guitar model ever produced, [Marcus] left his native Sweden to fill the upcoming ROYAL HUNT album with everything from monster riffs to 12–finger tapping (yes, he does sound like he have 12!), leaving Andre with 1017 guitar tracks to sort out... only to return for the mixing / photo sessions / interviews and other stuff," the band write on their web site. "Covering any musical style — acoustic ballads, PINK FLOYD-ish dreamscapes, Bach–on–300 km/h and just pure metal (and STILL managing to stay sane after partying with the band 'till 5 in the morning... well, almost every night... and even jumping on stage to jam with a local band in one of the bars in Copenhagen) he's a great addition to ROYAL HUNT — welcome, Marcus."

As previously reported, ROYAL HUNT are currently at the North Point studio in Copenhagen recording their new album. The as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2003's "Eyewitness" is due in late spring/early summer.
