Guest review by

Speed Metal is a very obscure subgenre. Those who think it is just fast power (because of the old Walls Of Jericho), is wrong, because DragonForce isn't speed metal. It has a different sound. Speed Metal is, mainly, seen at the late 80s in Germany. Running Wild is one of these bands, and this album the best of them.

I think you're right about this song, it's the best way to end the album

Rating: 8 Pretty good album, again, but this time with some weak songs. If you'd ask me "Fistful Of Dynamite", "Roaring Thunder", "White Buffalo" and "Jenning's Revenge" can be easily skipped since those songs don't represent the better Running Wild. The rest of these songs are either great ("Whirlwind", "Pile Of Skulls" and "Treasure Island") or at least good ("Sinister Eyes", "Black Wings Of Death" and "Lead Or Gold"). When you've got ~60 min album and ~20 minutes is quite fillerish, it's not too shabby because there's still good stuff for about 1 full length album. Personally I'd rather take a shorter album w/o weak songs.
