Every once in a while, a band emerges ready to take on the world… Sweden’s own Knights Of The Realm bring the thunder and deliver the goods (pun intended). From the first note of the intro, to the last on the outro, they deliver their own lovingly crafted blend of classic 80’s metal.
Knights Of The Real is many years of heavy metal experience combined into a pure vicious heavy metal machine. Larry ”The Hammer” Shield (Lars Sköld) has toured the globe and recorded with legendary band Tiamat for as long as he can remember, and is without a shadow of a doubt the band’s backbone. Magnus “Megalomangan” Henriksson has been making history with his band Eclipse since the end of the 90’s and is a bonafide guitar hero, who’s both capable of some heavy duty riffage as well as delivering gorgeous melodies. Mean Machine (Marcus Von Boisman) has been working in the shadows of metal for many years, and played with Swedish bands Windupdeads and Stormen. And as far as the Mean Machine goes, well, the name says it all! He delivers the soaring rock vocals we all love, with attitude and feeling.
The love for classic heavy metal is the driving force behind this band. The aim from the beginning was to write heavy metal hits that should, or could, have been on the albums they grew up listening to. When the songwriting process began, it was like opening Pandora’s box. The overall feeling was that those songs were calling out to be written and to be played, and the band’s collective ideas, dreams and experiences merged into something new, something that can hopefully lure a new generation of rockers into that metal club we all love.
Knights of the Realm is a Swedish heavy metal band, and their aim is to spread their music to as many metal heads as possible, all the while having a blast doing it. They are getting ready to go on a crusade, and to take their true place on the metal throne as Knights Of The Realm.
Today the Knights Of The Realm are happy to give us a first taste of their debut in the form of single ”Fields Of Fire”. The song speaks for itself and is a great introduction to the Realm!
The album ”Knights Of The Realm” will be released on CD on November 12th.
