Royal Blood is the eponymous debut studio album by British rock duo Royal Blood. The album, produced by the band and Tom Dalgety, was released by Warner Bros. Records on 22 August 2014 in Friday-release countries and on 25 August 2014 in the United Kingdom.

The album was well received by music critics. It was nominated for the 2014 Mercury Prize for best album. It has been a commercial success, debuting at number one on the UK Albums Chart and being verified by the Official Charts Company as the fastest-selling British rock debut album in the UK in three years. It has also charted worldwide, reaching top 10 positions in Ireland, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand. – Wiki

“There’s a moment about halfway through Royal Blood’s self-titled debut towards the end of the creepy ‘Blood Hands’ when, rather than his usual skin-pounding assault, drummer Ben Thatcher reverts to a surprisingly hushed tap-tap-tap to accompany Mike Kerr’s drawl and low-slung riff. Much of what has been written and said so far about this Brighton duo focuses on the noise and guts of their two-pronged assault and the idea that it amounts to far more than a two-piece should be capable of. But their excellent debut proves that‚ like all the best heavy music, it’s the moments of vulnerable calm that elevate noisy bands’ highest. There’s light, shade and careful nuance throughout. The crushing riffs of ‘Little Monster’ and ‘Out Of The Black’ might turn heads, but it’s the dynamics of ‘Ten Tonne Skeleton’ or the deft melody in ‘You Can Be So Cruel’ that hold the attention. - NME

“Royal Blood have surged forward as one of the year's genuine breakthrough acts, gigging like demons, accreting YouTube views and celebrity fans in Foals, Muse's Matt Bellamy and even Jimmy Page. Happily, their self-titled debut album sounds just like it should – a muscular expansion on the sound of their four preceding singles and EP.” – The Guardian
