In order to upgrade its trademark sound, ROYAL HUNT employed a large number of classical/orchestra players in the studio as well as a large choir.
Frontiers Records released ROYAL HUNT's box set, "20th Anniversary - Special Edition", on November 23, 2012 in Europe and January 21, 2013 in North America.
After the highly successful 20th-aniversary tour in support of ROYAL HUNT's last album, "Show Me How To Live", ROYAL HUNT decided to celebrate the occasion with a very special "best-of" package containing three CDs and one DVD. The release included the best ROYAL HUNT songs from all 11 albums, a brand new song plus three newly recorded acoustic versions of three additional tracks and a DVD featuring all the promotional video clips shot by the band during their long ride.
