After regenerating during the pandemic, and making some huge personal changes in their lives, Royal Thunder are back and are “Rebuilding the Mountain” they imploded years ago.
With Bluesy, Atmospheric riffs and lyrics full of swirling amends, the treasured Atlanta trio have found a new groove that suits them impeccably well. It is obvious Royal Thunder are more than pleased to be reunited with one another and that chemistry is evident on “Rebuilding the Mountain.”

“Rebuilding The Mountain“
Second chances in music—as in life—are rare. In a gated ecosystem that is set up to prevent even first chances, getting a do-over hardly ever happens. Perhaps no one in 2023 appreciates that more than the members of Royal Thunder. After losing a key member and eventually collapsing entirely under the weight of excess, the beloved Georgia trio have reunited and returned with their first album in six years.
For vocalist/bassist Mlny Parsonz, guitarist Josh Weaver and drummer Evan Diprima, the title of their fourth record tells the tale: “Rebuilding the Mountain.” For Diprima, who left the band in early 2018, it’s a long-awaited homecoming. Weaver and Parsonz reconnected with Diprima long-distance at the height of the pandemic in 2020. They spent about a year exchanging demos and song ideas online before finally getting in the same room together to write this album.
Recorded at West End Sound in Atlanta, “Rebuilding the Mountain” was engineered by Tom Tapley and Miles Landrum and co-produced by Royal Thunder and Tom Tapley. It marks the first time the band has recorded live in the studio.
