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!!!

I much preferre their Speed Metal material to their more 'traditional' material. They are okay but I do not listen to them all that often, Their best song is definately "Bad To The Bone"

Running Wild are a great band. One of my favourites indeed. Really love their pirate theme in their music. They have certainly had one hell of a career and they don't seem to be slowing down too fast either. Under Jolly Roger, Death or Glory, Black Hand Inn, Gates To Purgatory... I could just go on, they've got many great albums. Very enjoyable music, but not necessarily too cheesy at the same time. Rock 'n' Rolf is certainly awesome.

I must say Death or Glory and Black Hand Inn are probably my favourite albums. They're just great albums, very fun to listen to and have just got some really great riffs. Rolf's vocals are really good too.

Well, I absolutely love the early period. It's got some deadly riffs and speed. And a couple of their concert staples are from that era. And besides that I like Venom. Btw I don't hear any Celtic Frost influence there. More technical Venom, and more melodic voice, and more acomplished songwriting. But no CF there IMO..

Oh come on.. Lyrics don't count unless they're full of stupid ideas (I mean you can sing well about sucking Satan's dick and sing badly about freedom and peace and love.. it just depends on how do you treat the lyrical matter... IMO.. not the content but the way of formulation matters... I repeat IMO)
Old RW is not that worship Satan stuff. Read the first quote for ex.

Who cares for Satanic lyrics? I don't.. Gates Of Purgatory had satanic lyrics, but music is great, pure trash/speed metal in it's finest form

@Kariasakis7: They no longer sing about satan, that was only on Gates to Purgatory, and Branded and Exiled.

I can't believe I haven't posted here yet. These guys are among metal's finest. My favorite album is Black Hand Inn, with Under Jolly Roger and Pile of Skulls following closely. Port Royal and Death or Glory are also very good. Hell all of their albums are great, but I sadly haven't heard the latest two.

It is good, but nothing beats ythe old classics. However, I'm a big fan os Brotherhood. I'm proud of my digipack copy of it. It's a nice album. Even Victory has some great songs.. Too bad from the drumsound and the drumming in general on that one...

I finally got their debut, I was looking through used cds at my local CD store (which doesn't really carry much of what I want) and I about shit myself. I pulled it out and said aloud "HOLY SHIT ITS GATES TO PURGATORE" and immediately bought it. It was quite an enjoyable album. I couldn't believe someone in my somewhat small town, traded in their used Gates to Purgatory! Hahaha I never imagined there would be someone in my city like that, I should meet him haha

It is maybe strange, but I remember that many freaks in my home town were metalheads, now, when you look at them they look just like every hard working man, getting up early to go to work and later come home watch tv and go to bar for a drink, but before they all used to be hairy metalheads and I got many tapes back in 90's from those guys. When you least expect from someone to have Gates Of Purgatory, he have it.

Btw, awesome album, one of my favorites. It is little different than other Tunning Wild releases, lyrical themes are not about pirates but they are rather small minded childish Satanism. Music is also a little bit different, it is some old school speed metal, German school hahaha I like it a lot, one of my favorites definitely. Diabolic Force!

How do you know they aren't metalheads anymore? The way one loooks has nothing to do with their passion for the music (so being a metalhead)
