Special Edition of the sixteenth full-length studio album by legendary German Heavy/Power/Speed Metal band.
For a band that started in 1976, first as Granite Heart, and officially broke up once, Running Wild has staged a modest comeback, releasing three albums since picking back up. Rolf Kasparek now finds himself and the band 40 years since first setting out, guarding a comfortable brand of retro. And on "Rapid Foray", the band services that legacy proudly.
It took Rolf Kasparek nearly a year to recuperate from a shoulder injury, which delayed the release of "Rapid Foray". For most, the wait should be well worth it. Rolf and guitarist Peter Jordan are credited as the primary musicians on "Rapid Foray", with Ole Hempelmann and Michael Wolpers filling the bassist and drummer slots on tour. In the case of Wolpers, he is also one of a team of recording techs on the album. According to Kasparek, he recorded the vocals and guitars at his personal studio while Peter Jordan recorded guitar solos, drums and choruses. A total of three studios were involved in total for the recording process. He also gave mention that only three musicians took part on the album.
It’s pretty obvious that "Rapid Foray" is another highlight in the career of Running Wild. "Rapid Foray" yet retains a classic feel that cannot be shirked by Kasparek even if he was trying for something wholly contemporary. Give Rolf Kasparek a hand for trying new methods to update tried and true German Metal!
Special Edition Digipack CD includes 20-page booklet + 24-page foldout booklet/poster.
