Now talk about Danish dynamite! The pompish Royal Hunt reunited with original singer DC Cooper in 2011 and released their 11th studio album "Show me how to live" after fans requests around the world. The band has been on several different labels such as Magna Carta, Century Media, Marquee Avalon, Frontiers and Scarlet Records who is releasing the compilation "Heart of the city, Best of 1992-1999" that contains songs from their first 5 albums. To be considered by many fans as their best work. Sure, their albums with the singers John West and Mark Boals truly had their moments but I agree that Royal Hunt´s early albums are their strongest. DC Cooper is also my favorite singer in RH, this 10 track collection is living proof that not even CSI can argue about. Some of these albums are also hard to get these days so I welcome this album with open arms.
