If I had to, I’d say we’re heavy metal for people who know a thing or two about music.

I was quite excited to check out the debut release by ROYAL ORPHAN. These newcomers managed to satisfy my thirst for some high class, inspired Power/Progressive Metal. Did I say newcomers? Well ok, the ROYAL ORPHAN project is new, but the two people behind it, have already spent quite a few years in music. And there are lots of things to be shared about this glorious past and of course the most glorious present and future under the ROYAL ORPHAN moniker. We tracked down vocalist, guitarist and bassist Brendan Kelly and we had a very interesting conversation about one of the most amazing Power/Prog Metal projects that New York has to offer today: ROYAL ORPHAN.
