Royal Thunder fell silent for the better part of three years and then immediately washed itself in redemption with the announcement of a new record titled Crooked Doors, due out Apr. 7. The first single off the album made me extremely happy to hear not only that the band was back, but back in such a big way… and if "extremely happy" is the emotion for that, then I'm not sure how to properly describe "Time Machine."
It's a song that utilizes dynamics in an excellently executed way. It's a song that builds and breaks in all the right places and sucks you in just enough to make it feel like seven minutes never passed in the first place. Prepare to lose some time out of your day, more than likely a few times over.
