Remastered re-release of the eighth full-length studio album by legendary German Heavy/Power/Speed Metal band.
As a band, Rolf Kaspareck's Running Wild need no introductions. Synonymous with the term "Pirate Metal", the band had essentially been doing the exact same thing for close to a decade by the time this album was released. Of course, the old adage proves to be true - practice indeed makes perfect, or as close to it as you can get. With this release, Running Wild basically set their own bar so high that the inevitable disappointments were sure to come. Regardless, "Black Hand Inn" stands as a masterpiece of this unique style, an album that anyone with even a passing interest in traditional or Power Metal should be sure not to miss. If the term "fun" ever did apply to a Metal album, it applies here. "Black Hand Inn" is a sheer joy to listen to!
Running Wild are the type of band, where just about every song sounds the same, so if you like one, you'll like them all. Also, if you liked any of their previous four or five albums, "Black Hand Inn" is sure to please as well. Very few bands, playing anything that falls in the bounds of traditional forms of Metal, can be said to have a truly unique sound. Yeah, there are a couple of bands who sound mildly like Running Wild, but Rolf and crew were the originators, true pioneers of the Pirate Metal sound and imagery, and "Black Hand Inn" represents the ultimate perfection of this style! A blind purchase recommendation of the highest order!!
Deluxe Expanded Edition includes 12-page booklet two bonus tracks.
Noise Records/Sanctuary Records Group Ltd., a BMG Company, 1994/2017 (NOISECD032). Made in EU. Pressed in Austria.
