16:37 - Apothecary I guess it's tough to say with BaN. I personally consider MoRT their peak period, and I haven't been too impressed with their post-777 material, but that could easily change, because Vindsval is full of surprises
16:04 - mz btw, Che, check this band if you are falling in love with Virus [link]
16:02 - mz cant say that about BaN, especially given the fact that the guy has started a band which supposedly sets MoRT as its starting point.
15:58 - Apothecary But I think we're also going to be seeing the rise of a second wave of French BM soon (it's kind of already happening), because imo the giants of BAN and DSO are already past their prime
15:57 - Apothecary French BM at the moment is definitely more stylistically diverse. But, as you said, that could be the case with Icelandic BM too in coming years
After releasing Shadowmaker last year, German heavy metal veterans Running Wild will release the second album this year since they reformed, more precisely in October. The new studio album is still untitled as of now and was initially planned for September 2013 but had to be pushed back. The good news is that you can expect new music from the band to be released worldwide on Steamhammer/SPV.
New album release dates:
Germany: October 4th
Rest of Europe: October 7th
U.S./Canada: to be announced
Man, looking to this picture of Death or Glory line up puts the newest albums to a shame .
And what if the new album gets better than the last ones? Don't lose the hopes, Rolf is a great musician
He sure is, but after the latest Running Wild, Toxic Taste and Giant X album(s) it feels like he has lost his touch for metal. And despite the nickname "Rock n' Rolf" rock doesn't seem to be his forte. A good album would be a pleasant surprise and of course a possibility but somewhat unlikely to happen.
