  • hello fellow metallians, i take it if you are reading this you must be a true metal head or you would not be on this page. we all know and love running wild. i would rank them as one of the all time long standing most influential metal bands of all time. rolf should have his name right up there with the top visionaries of traditional and power metal. i mean alongside names like king diamond, udo dirkschneider, kai hansen, and so on. with not one bad album in his amazingly long career rolf is a metal mastermind. sure we all remember the classics like death or glory and blackhand inn, those albums were amazing. but ive found out along the way that alot of people judge this band harshly because all their albums do not sound like black hand inn. we the fans are taken by the cool as hell pirate themes and larger than life power riffs but people they have not sold out. sure there are some differences but all things aside they are still the running wild i have loved and followed for years. now if you want to talk about sell outs talk about metallica, i mean after classics like ride the lightning and puppets they throw this new weird as hell st anger at us, now that is a sell out. any way back to the basics. fans just listen to the amazing songs this cd has to offer. rock’n rolf now is taking over all the guitar work, untill now i did not realize just what an amazing guitarist he was. listen to tracks 2′3′and 4. these are hard hitting riffs that are catchy as hell and mellodic with a pirate or civil sort of feel and exactly what running wild should be. running wild have allways been blessed with the talent of being able to release album after album of catchy mellodic awesome 5 star records. victory saw a change in the band with new drummer sossa. the drums were hard to describe but kept a neat rythm that galloped along the cool riffs nicely, the 2nd song on victory is one of their best songs of all time. now i like the death or glory days better but that was then folks and this is now. this album(the brotherhood) really shows just how talentad a songwriter and just how much of an acclompished guitarist that rock’n rolf truly is. i would like to see a return to the early 90’s roots but i will surely settle for what running wild is currently pursuing. metallians if you like me live for power metal, and if power chords and sing along choruses and mystical epic song structures along with imaginative story telling nearly gives you an orgasm then check out this album and support one of the most talented brothers in our metal world today, rock’n rolf, i salute you. your friend in metal, brandon whitson of north carolina
