Royal Blood - EP (2011 demos)

Kristian Carvajal Velk

This EP is the proof that even if you write awesome songs, it can all go to waste if you're not playing with the right people. Matt Swan is a good drummer but Ben is the reason why Royal Blood became this huge band. It's also amazing to see how small arrangements (for instance Figure It Out's outro) can change the whole dynamic of the song and make it 100x better !

In a duo you can't have a good drummer when you can have a fantastic one..maybe no one would have heard of Nirvana had there been no Dave Grohl.They were always looking for a louder drummer and then...

@TheWildubeest well I think Royal Blood wouldn’t be as good as it is now if Matt Swan was in the band...I mean, there’s a good reason why Mike returned to England and started jaming with Ben...he is such a powerful and very skilled drummer and he’s miles away from the old drummer. Regarding Figure It Out, yes the drum parts are almost identical but the final version is more structured and the drums are just 150% better !

I see where you’re coming from but I’d almost disagree and say it’s the opposite. A lot of the drum ideas are there - take figure it out for example. They’re almost identical to the ones on the album, they’re just tighter and sound better on the album. I think better production and mixing took them to the next level. And writing better songs ofc but I do agree Ben helped a lot with the sound

Mike does some more theatrical vocals in these songs than he does the others, plus the bass sounds different, and on top of that you can see their early influences especially in Cannibal Karma and the line “she took my heart and drank my blood” came back in ten tonne skeleton.

@soundofcitydog uk the new album, you mean? It's definitely different, not as heavy as the first couple of albums but their live set lists now have a bit more variety with songs like Limbo and Typhoons now able to be sprinkled in alongside their heavier stuff. I've got tickets to see them twice on the UK tour next year at both Birmingham and Manchester 🤘

First off, I want to thank you for uploading all the Royal Blood rarities on your channel. I run a Royal Blood Tracker on /r/Royal_Blood and I was wondering if you would be willing to share any further information on these songs or potentially the original files with me privately to be posted on the tracker. Either message this YT account or /u/csg370 on reddit if you'd be willing. Thanks again! https://www.reddit.com/r/Royal_Blood/comments/nhaz2g/royal_blood_tracker/

Depends really, the intro to Out of the Black Mike uses the harmonist when the loud part comes in, but on a guitar, they strum the E, A and D strings to make the same sound, but Ten Tonne Skeleton is probably (I don't play guitar btw) easier on guitar because they might not need to step on the pedal every time they play the high notes in the intro and chorus

That specific arrangement/song has never been released, the parts and arrangements are either not in the same structure in the same song, and some have been used in other songs, therefore that specific recording has not been released in any other way, or been re-recorded. 'Come On Over' and 'Figure It Out' have been released, even though they're different recordings, the follow the same arrangement and structure and so have been "released".

There's nothing really pop about this band apart from that they are popular, the new disco funk rock fusion is not pop in terms of musical genre/style, it is just a very niche rock fusion, the first album was more commercially viable than the recent release, as it was more mainstream rock, it's just that they're a good band with good music and continuous innovation and they rely on catchiness, so they are still popular.
