Royal Hunt - The Mission (2001). Songs in album Royal Hunt - The Mission (2001). 1. Take Off Это мой первый альбом,услышаный у Хантов. После него я наглухо на них подсел. Музыка-класс,участники-профи. По-моему у них нет ни одной проходной вещи. очень интересный альбом, когда первый раз слушал, сразу обратил внимание на "ненастоящие" барабаны в некоторых треках к примеру the mission. очень понравился звук гитары на альбоме и вокалист. композиторский талант Андерсена выше всяких похвал:) dogriko. Один из лучших альбомов!

Four singles were released from the album: "Drill Instructor", "Little Boy", "Soldier Soldier", and "Captain Jack".

Royal Hunt matches their prog metal chops with a concept on The Mission, an album that is lyrically based on Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles. While the idea of a metal concept album seems hopelessly dated (Queensryche's 1987 masterpiece Operation: Mindcrime remains the unchallenged benchmark), what's worse is that Royal Hunt's sound has barely evolved beyond the late '70s. At best, The Mission approaches Dream Theater's neo-prog elegance; at worst, it recalls Styx's Kilroy Was Here

Only for completionists (6%). After the good, but also a little disapointing Fear, came The Mission. The group again picks up their metal and prog influences and makes a concept album, this time based on Ray Bradbury's The Mars Chronicles. The Mission may suffers the need for longer songs for the musicicans to shine, but the tunes are great and John West soars through the album. They continued to be plaged by changes of drummers. Here old time friend and ex original member Kenneth Olsen (along with Kim Johanneson) comes back.
