One of the most consistent traditional metal bands ever!!
Basically all of their old albums are classics and have some of the most catchy choruses ever.. Excellent heavy riffs, blazing solos, and upbeat drumming.. What more can you expect.. Oh, the intelligent lyrics are their deal also (it's not just stupid themes rehashing some pirate storiesm, and besides that they have a lot of other themes such as Genghis Khan)...
And this concert staple song describes them the best:

We are prisoners of our time
But we are still alive
Fight for the freedom,
Fight for the right
We are Running Wild

Those lyrics also hold true today!
Hail, hail to the creators of Pirate Metal (of course it's not a genre)!
Rock 'n' Rolf rules!!!

does anyone else recognize the people and see the disturbing resemblance? lol

Not in the slightest.

you're shitting me right? in that picture, and apart from the red hair, Rolf Kasparek looks EXACTLY LIKE the poor hapless man named Herb from 2 and a Half Men.

I've grown kind of fond of this band recently. Idk why in particular. I guess they just can be a fun band to listen to.

Looks more like Robin Williams to me.

Idk, I think he looks more like Craig T. Nelson from the sitcom "Coach."

If this shit isnt a cult band nothing is.

And a metalpage without Running Wild in the top 200 isnt worth shit. They have at least three albums who sits at 190 votes with high ratings. So Running Wild needs your vote...

Conquistadores (and whole Port Royal) kicks ass. With Under Jolly Roger my fav. But imo Death or Glory is last good album from them.

Those lists always suck anyways though. My favorite song by them is "Under Jolly Roger" as well! It's got a pirate theme to it, because, they decided to write the song to sound pirate-themed.

I know, a new revelation about Running Wild!

"Under Jolly Roger" is probably their best known song. I would definitely recommend listening to more of their music as well. They have a lot of music that's pirate-themed, like something that probably influenced Alestorm.

Oh shit it does sound a bit like Alestorm. Nice.

I missed a chance to see Alestorm live once in S.F. Would have been great to see them play.
