Royal Republic - Club Majesty

Royal Republic
Club Majesty
by Craig Rider at 02 August 2019, 2:30 PM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: ROYAL REPUBLIC; signed via Nuclear Blast Records, hailing from Swedish grounds - performing Rock, on their 4th album entitled: "Club Majesty" (released 31st of May, 2019).

Since formation in 2007; the quartet in question have 4 albums in their discography so far, I am introduced to their 4th album entitled: "Club Majesty". 11 tracks ranging at around 34:53; ROYAL REPUBLIC arranges an intricately designed formula of heavy-hitting Rock developments. Having seen these at the Download Festival in England recently; who put on a stellar show, I was excited to get started with this one. "Fireman & Dancer" begins the record; conveying amplified adrenaline, boistrously bouncy catchiness & a barraged frenzy of classy energy – fuelled with hardened hymns & flamboyantly composed finesse. Complete with concretely gnarly rhythms, relentless vehemence that showcases versatile ultilizations & uniquely compiled grooves in which excel with elegantly exquisite instrumentation and meticulous musicianship.

Consisting of Adam Grahn on lead vocals/rhythm guitar; the frontman demonstrates clean pipes of rawly rough ramifications, and an hinted aesthetic of high-pitched lungs here and there. "Can't Fight The Disco" distributes complex dexterity; dominated with solid slabs of riveting riffs and solos that thunderously supply organic substance & rapidly swift nimbleness, while portraying diversely dynamic varieties. Lead guitarist Hannes Irengård (also on backing vocals) embellishes on experimental fluidity; polished with progressively technical virtuosities, persistently providing sonically seamless radio-friendly inventivity - in which hastily implements electronica elements & blistering beats that rush with wild pursuits of harmonious heaviness - as
"Boomerang" fabricates upbeat tempos with traditionally melodious alterations as a borderline foundation of formulaic alt manifestations.

"Under Cover" injects infectious dosages of bass guitar battering from Jonas Almén; thumping with quintessential quakes, quirky snappiness & jazzy fuzziness - frolicking into an immersively detailed flair of funky tunage. "Like A Lover" is your stereotypical rocker; simplistic yet subjugated with rambunctious dimensions, evolved into an easy-listening distinction of constructively distinguished results. Per Andreasson on the hammering drums pummels with frantic efficiency; smashing with vibrant potency that manifests into a fashionable style of momentous swagger. "Blunt Force Trauma" strikes with razor-sharp symphonies that contrasts into a blend of hybrid precision; revolved around a mass juxtapositon of psychedelic retro rock, while transistioned with exuberent disco feel-good pop rock.

"Fortune Favours" examines exhilarating horn sections & a vortex of synthesized trailblazing; charismatic euphonics, and consistently jumpy kicks which has a knack for avant garde diligence. "Flower Power Madness" is an ecstatic; full-throttle exultation, engaged on captivating fulfillments & enlightening vibes of raunchy perseverence. "Stop Movin'" is an frenetically brisk motivator; moved with meaty weight, uncomplicated yet excelled into a comedic conception that triumphs with pleasing songwriting memorability. "Anna-Leigh" is another punchy stimulator; transformed with humorous characteristics, overarched with profusely robust variations that delight in an enjoyably entertaining experience. Overall concluding "Club Majesty" with the finale song: "Bulldog"; I am compelled to say that this was a discovery worth the listen, only it may not be a replayable one - however; ROYAL REPUBLIC are full of talented potential, and will most definitely appeal to the rockers who are craving that new record - extreme metalheads would probably like this, if you are open-minded enough that is. Good stuff nonetheless!
