Last year we were treated with a new album from Running Wild in the form of Shadowmaker, which was a nice surprise since Running Wild called it quits in 2009. It seems Rolf is eager to give the fans a new RW album this year as well. Below is a statement from the Running Wild Facebook page.
“Rolf finished working on a few songs for the upcoming RUNNING WILD album already and is currently working on a few more ideas. What stories and themes will be available this time? What do you expect from the new album?”
As for what I would like from a new RW album, as I have been a big Running Wild Fan for many many years, is that we have more energetic songs, memorable riffs and melodies throughout the album. The last few albums such as the Brotherhood, Rouges En Vouge and Shadowmaker all had a few tracks that had the classic RW sound but were outnumbered by the songs that lacked an indentity. I think instead of writing 10-12 songs with only maybe 3 being true classics, as a fan I would e happy with 8-9 well written songs Rolf can take his time with since he and Peter Jordan are the only two members that work with the band. So in other words, don’t spread yourself so thin Rolf!
Also it would be nice to see…A TOUR!!!!!
