Remastered re-release of the sixth full-length studio album by legendary German Heavy/Power/Speed Metal band.
According to Rolf Kasparek, "Blazon Stone" is the best-selling album by the band, in the 1990s. It is also their first album with both guitarist Axel Morgan and drummer AC.
As always, Running Wild's sincerity and elevation steals the show, however. A song like "Blazon Stone" calls to mind elaborate scenes of piracy and buccaneering, and the great freedom one feels in conquering the wild sea. Anyone who has heard the enslaving call of the sea will feel its power.
"Blazon Stone" solidified Running Wild's cult following with another heavy dose of Pirate imagery and enough strong riffs to put the record over. Neither the production or playing, nor even the writing, is flawless, but as usual Running Wild makes up for it ample with spirit. Do not make that all-too common mistake of underrating Running Wild, and give their best albums a listen! This is one of them!!
Deluxe Expanded Edition includes two bonus tracks and 16-page booklet.
