Royal Thunder – Crooked Doors

Atlanta’s Royal Thunder was a young band searching for a voice when it recorded its 2012 debut, CVI. Driven by the brilliant wail of vocalist Mlny Parsonz, the album was a heavy Southern trip, sounding a lot like the band’s fellow Georgians Baroness and Mastodon — maybe too much alike. Royal Thunder was reflexively pegged into the “Southern metal” scene, and with that came the mega-corporate festivals, metal touring circuits, and the expectations of being a big bad metal band signed to Relapse. There was an image and style to maintain.
