Royal Hunt and John West seperate ways!

ROYAL HUNT and John West have decided that at this time (after numerous albums and concert tours) they are no longer able to contribute creatively to each other’s future musical development. It’s been a hell of a ride, but both parties feel like it is about time to move on and explore different musical paths - therefore, they mutually agreed to part ways as of March 16th, 2007 .

“We’re not ruling out possible future collaborations for a joint venture or a side project” – André and John state - “but it won’t be under the RH moniker”.

John had joined Royal Hunt in 1999 during the recording of the “Fear” album and he worked with the band until our latest release – live CD/DVD “Royal Hunt 2006”. We’d like to express our gratitude to John for a great 8-year run and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

Too bad, ClickWitch introduced me to RH, and I think they are great. Especially with J. West. A great loss, but I hope he keeps himself in the metal scene. He's a great singer.
