VOIVOD 'Best of ...' and re-issues via 'Noise Lebt!"

In autumn last year the first re-issues of Noise Records bands/releases took place. This first wave included material from bands like Sinner, Running Wild and the mighty Kreator, songs that came from the earlier days of these bands, a time when the Berlin-based...

CD review RUNNING WILD "Rapid Foray"

(8/10) There were times when I was almost convinced that the flagship of pirate-style metal disappeared in the endless ocean of metal - forever. But obviously there is still life in the old dog yet and it would be very wrong to write off Running Wild....

CD review STALLION "Rise and ride"

(7/10) I have to admit that I haven't heard from Stallion before. On the one hand not a big surprise since the guys released so far just a demo and an EP called "Mounting the world". The debut of the band will get into the stores mid september this year....

CD review ALESTORM "Sunset on the golden age"

(7/10) What happens if you merge Santiano with Sabaton and spice it up with a bit of the Dropkick Murphies and Running Wild? Exactly. You get Alestorm. The band, that started as Battleheart, re-named in 2007, which means that they reflaged and continued...

CD review RUNNING WILD "Resilient"

It’s so strange. The first question which popped up in my mind when I got the new Running Wild album “Resilient” was: "Who played the drums". But I refuse to go further with the discussion in this review, because Roch'n'Rolf himself didn't want to talk...
